PostSubject: Trash A GoGo Surf In Shanghai   Wed Sep 15, 2010 9:36 pm

2010 Trash a gogo / Nippon Season

9/22 @ YYT The Whys / Friend or Foe / The Beat Bandits
9/23 @ Logo The Dudettes / Hotter Than Teppanyaki / The Beat Bandits / Special Guest
9/24 @ 696 Pairs / The Beat Bandits / The Whys

And so: it was decreed by the Party Elders known only as MT Hooligans that the one night monthly music-orgy known as TRASH A GO-GO would no longer satisfy the coffers of blood required to satiate the People's lust for ROCKABILLY, PUNK, SURF, GARAGE, and ALL THINGS SONICALLY FREAKY.

And so: the pail moon mirrored the faces of the horrified masses of Shanghai when the pamphlet was nailed in the town forum. No longer would Trash A G0-GO be one night, but in SEPTEMBER, THREE! THREE NIGHTS OF DEPRAVITY! THREE NIGHTS OF MONSTER JAMS! THREE NIGHTS OF CRASH! BOOM! BAM!

And so: the denizens read on, silently, slowly, to see the names of the monsters that would feast this month.

The Whys:

Smoking hot Japanese surf-rock chicks (and one dude) that are known to shimmy hula style. Their sound is lean, clean, and mean with with walloping reverb galore.

The Beat Bandits:

With a foot in the ass-shaking surf-swing of Dick Dale and The Champs, the Beat Bandits allows listeners to hang-ten over bouncy baselines and jumpy keyboards until...until....CRASH! Mizuzu's Tsunami-sized guitar roars waves at the audience like a long-lost Godzilla villain. You're caught in the middle as these two sides duel it out, leaving the listener to pogo and twist with equal zeal.

The Pairs:
http://www.douban.com/artist/pairs/
A two-some that leans more to Suicide than more contemporary rock-duos, Pairs brings a wall of disheartening, angular drone that disarms before drummer/vocalist Rhys smashes your conscience to bits. Wailing guitars and vocals make this the LOUDEST band of the night.

Hotter Than Teppanyaki:
http://www.myspace.com/hotterthanteppanyaki
There are seven people in this ensemble. I have no idea how they will fit onto the stage at LoGo. That may be their whole show (and worth it).

The Dudettes:
Outrageous vaudeville featuring their hit (you on the ass songs) like "H1N1" and "Facebook Stalker."

Friend or Foe:
A new band that is blasting onto the Shanghai scene with funky, dancy, dirty rock and roll. There theatrics and energy will make you get down.

DJ B.O:
He rebels against people who DJ because they are afraid to dance in public. He will sing and dance to provoke movement; he is somewhere between vaudeville and Warhol. Featuring vintage-hits and forgotten favorites, he thinks dance music is for pussies but The Shanghri-Las are fucking artists, man. Tech? NO
