We have another Tuesday night of Rock and Roll for you for our next 30th Anniversary Client Showcase. It occurs to me that what makes this night special is that there is something intrinsically demented about all three of these acts, something kinda crazy, kinda wrong. In other words, expect strong songs and interesting, clever lyrics.

Smokey Miles opens at 9:00 with a rare acoustic set; he is an amazing roots rock singer/songwriter who sometimes plays with his full band called The Snake Farmers. As our client, I have known him for his theme songs we recorded for multiple Troma Films (Poultrygeist, The Toxic Avenger series) and his performances as Count Smokula, an accordion playing 496-year-old Transylvanian vampire.

Headlining at 10:00 we have the "gleefully apocalyptic" Mr. Vampire, fresh off the Westside Revival stage at the Venice/Mar Vista Artwalk. These guys have an almost artrock 70's vibe, a theatrical vibe in the best sense of the word, with hints of Bowie. They are working with us currently with producer Sejo Navajas, and are one of my favorite new-found artists with extremely listenable songs.

Closing out the night at 11:00 we have Donkey Island Penitentiary, whose lead singer, the harmonica maestro Big Dave, wrote the songs after coming out of a month-long coma where he actually momentarily died. The songs are stories of his nightmares: "dreams with devils, vigilante justice, and regret across different planes of consciousness.

I always say this, but you should have a plan for calling in sick to work on Wednesday.  . . see you there!
