Pinky Tuscadero's WhiteKnuckle AssFuck, The Smoky Mountain Skullbusters, and Blanche Davidian at Yucca Tap Room
Pinky Tuscadero's WhiteKnuckle AssFuck last night at Yucca Tap Room in Tempe.
Smoky Mountain Skullbusters last night at Yucca Tap Room in Tempe
Sure, I'd heard all of their songs before, read feature stories and CD reviews that New Times has featured in the past, and heard juicy bits of gossip about each band, but had never witnessed their gigs for my own eyes. I finally got a chance to correct this error on Saturday night, as all three bands reunited in a "one night only" sort of deal in honor of the birthday of local punk musician Ben Barnes.
Last Night: Pinky Tuscadero's WhiteKnuckle AssFuck and Smoky Mountain Skullbusters at Yucca Tap Room
Personal Bias: I used to check out AZPunk every day to keep up on the latest gossip.
The Crowd: Various and sundry punk fans, including roller derby chicks, Betty Page wanna-bes, tattooed pikers, and Mohawked misfits.
Overheard: "Anyone seen Bam-Bam?" [a.k.a. Mike "Bam-Bam" Sversvold from JFA]
Random Notebook Dump: The drummer from Smoky Mountain is wearing a tee shirt extolling the fact he has a huge penis. Okay then.
One More Thing: I got a Facebook message from former Hollywood Alley booker/bartender Robert "Fun Bobby" Birmingham stating he'd seen me at the show taking pictures.
