Tugboat Creeps Out the Internet to Promote Their October Residency at Long Wong's

Do you ever feel like you're just not creeped out enough by the local music? Well, Tempe rocksters Tugboat intend to change that. 

A series of videos promoting their October Long Wong's at The Firehouse residency shows the band in all of their glory. Their ballsy, ballsy glory. 

So far, they've released three equally terrifying videos. The first, promoting their October 7 show, features drummer Phillip Hanna's face in a bodybuilder cutout. Something about it just doesn't sit right with me. 

The third installment, promoting their upcoming October 21 show, shows flashes of Jack Nickolson and Tom Cruise and the devil. All the while, Hanna's distorted voice makes you feel uneasy... again. 

They're all equally terrifying, but this one has a special place in my junk. I mean heart. I mean balls. I mean... here, just watch. 

I have never craved hot wings more in my life. 

The video for their October 28 show is yet to be released, but we fully expect it to top them all, being the final show of their residency and all. 

I hit up Long Wong's this past Friday and truthfully, they could really amp up the testes factor live. Just a tip.
