This Friday night at Betty's Antwerp, Belgium's electronic music producer and DJ Sickboy Milkplus will be performing! He also has played with To Live and Shave in L.A. and is touring with Rat Bastard also of T.L.A.S.I.L.A. However, in Nashville, Rat will be performing with the Laundry Room Squelchers because Val and I live here and because Nashville is always in need of a good squelching. Also performing is Miami based Amanda Green's new band (Amanda is also a Squelcher!), Yo Yo Xo, Luciano's (also a LRS member)new band Dyslexic Postcards, which is the band Val and I were haggling at a pre-INC house show in Miami in February to the point of which they were so annoying that Val threw my empty beer can at them and the lead singer flipped-out unplugging everyone's amps and yelling "Who the fuck threw that full beer bottle at me?" (Yes, he lied/exaggerated/actually believed it, because all it was was an empty beer can with a little backwash in it.) "Be a real man and step up!" Well because Val isn't a 'real' man she didn't step up. So I really only got to see two songs because we ruined their show but what we saw was a good old jangly, freaky-deeky indie rock band with an amazing guitar player(Luciano)! Also traveling up from Miami is Sharlyn Evertsz and Asian Aquarium. Check out the videos and songs below! (Gold Spray Paint is Amanda Green)Show starts promptly with me (Leslie Keffer) opening, debuting new dance jams and is only $3-5. See you Friday!

Bombs, Cock ESP, Drugs, Blood, Glitter and Eugenics Council

Last week at a Cock ESP/Eugenics Council show in Chicago some bombs went off...literally. Cock ESP's set consisted of a guy bleeding everywhere having a drug freak-out, some girl rolling around on the floor naked covered in dirt, blood, and glitter who was definitely not Jason Wade or C. Lavender, but they were all there playing, knocking over speakers and having metal kids yell "You suck!" at them. Eugenics Council then came on deciding it was time to use some major props in their set a.k.a. bombs. Check out the video:


Afterwords, everything was covered in bomb dust, there were injured people, the p.a. was broken and Ted from 2 Dead Sluts 1 Good Fuck's gear was destroyed. The girls in the video who left during the set met up with the guys from Cock ESP for some sexy time after the show. Guess the were ready to use those glitter encrusted Ke$ha condoms.

Rat Bastard to Sing National Anthem at Some Game Tonight

According to DigUnderRock blog, Rat Bastard will be "performing" the National Anthem at Sun Life Stadium in Miami tonight. Here's the report straight from DigUnderRock:

"A South Florida local music legend, but also known world-wide as noise legend Frank “Rat Bastard” Falestra will perform the National Anthem at the Florida Marlins home opener against the New York Mets tonight at Sun Life Stadium in Miami. If you don’t have tickets, you’re out of luck, because the game is completely sold out.

Falestra has performed all over the globe in several bands including Scraping Teeth, Laundry Room Squelchers, To Live and Shave in L.A. He plays a number of different instruments… all in odd tuning and has produced hundreds of local artists in South Florida, including an early version of Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids. “Hearing Damage: The Rat Opera” debuted in 2009, written by Rob Elba and Brian Franklin. No word yet on what instrument the “Rat” will perform tonight, but chances are it was hand-made in his Miami Beach studio/apartment."
