AUGUST 23 / $10 ENTRY / 21+ / DRESS TO KILL
THE DEPOT: 360 W. Cottage Place, York, PA 17401
***THE KID CONGO POWERS HOUR***
Raging 1960's garage-punk covers by the legendary Kid Congo Powers (The Cramps, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Gun Club) James Canty (Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up) and a few other degenerates of questionable talent... seriously stomping slop from some legitimately hep freaks. These cats don't assemble very often, so don't blow this rare opportunity to see them!
***MOVIE STAR JUNKIES***http://www.moviestarjunkies.com/
For every movie buff out there that envisions they'd like to make a remake of a Clint Eastwood spaghetti-western, forget about hiring some junior Morricone to do the soundtrack and hire the Movie Star Junkies instead. This Italian band has the proper reverberation and dusty haze that just seems natural. It's not all about that expansive twaaaang with them though. They are not afraid to scream and yell, not to mention turn everything up into a redlining hiss when it's called for either. If Jon Spencer and Matt Verta-Ray Decided to do a third Heavy Trash record and heard the Movie Star Junkies during the planning stages of it, both of them would delete names from the Sadies from their phone list and be making international calls to Turin working on plans to get these guys into a New York City studio.

***NEW COKE***http://slovenly.bandcamp.com/album/new-coke-he-got-stabbed-in-the-thro at-ep
Coming in all the way from West Palm Beach to play this one show... check the press release from Slovenly Recordings for their debut single:
Every once in awhile, like, NEVER, we get hip to a record that's so goddamn good we wish we could have released it ourselves, so when the opportunity to become the exclusive distributor for this single presented itself, we thrust ourselves at it full force. The master haters at Slovenly couldn't be any more keyed up to present the debut 7" from brand new West Palm Beach, FL freaks NEW COKE. What can we say? This record is a HIT. There's two razor sharp, uncontrollable dark-pop stab-jobs here that sound like nothing else we've ever heard. Influences range from Reigning Sound and Suicide (the band) to acute stress (the condition), broke down rhythm & blues and vintage soul shouters, and a warped interpretation of the vocal phrasing of the stand up comedy of Richard Pryor.
***THE THING WITH TWO HEADS***
The severely cramped two-headed Dallastown DJ spins the wildest wax ever made between bands. DANCE! DANCE! DANCE!
