Saturday, December 18
Freeform KDVS 90.3 FM Presents
@ The Hub

1819 23rd Street
Sacramento CA 95816

The overdue (yet triumphant) return of English Singles!
2010's three best new finger-snap'n, foot-tap'n partyhardy bands of the SF Bay Area!
Midnite Snaxxx
Wrong Words
Angora Debs

all ages
8:30 doors
9:00 showtime
$5 for Hub members
+$1 one-time fee if it's your first Hub show
(BYO-crypto-B...we don't wanna see the cans and bottles they were born in...(pour it into something else (or just enjoy my proprietary "faux loko" blend)))

These bands speak to fans of rock 'n' roll, killer hooks, chirping melodies, and brimming energy. You can believe me now and mark your calendar, or if you're waiting to be impressed, check out these ex-members-of affiliations...

Angora Debs is fronted by Jason Patrone, singer of THEE BEST band in Sacramento in the early 2000s...the FM Knives. Also played in Los Huevos and Pretty Girls here in Sacto, and more recently Photobooth. Angora Debs is a Laverne & Shirley reference!

Midnite Snaxxx features Tina "Boom Boom" Lucchesi, chiefly of The Trashwomen and Bobbyteens fame, but was also in a ton of other rad bands. Most recently, she was in Top Ten and C'mon Everybody (you might remember them from their pulse-pounding, fun-packed set at the Delta of Venus in Davis during KDVS "Treehouse" host DJ Emily's birthday party); and she's the proprietor of Down at Lulu's, an East Bay epicenter of fabulous hairstyles, clothes, and records (many fans of Hunx know something about this). The Snaxxx also feature Dulcinea, who totally slayed in The Loudmouths back in the 90s, of whom I was quite the fanboy. Their merger with a reformed The Lewd was The Lewdmouths, and their show at Club Cocodrie in SF was one of the very best blasts from the original punk heyday I've ever seen.

English Singles descend from Sacto rulers of years past, too: Bananas, Nar, FM Knives, Yahmos, Pretty Girls.

I don't know if the Wrong Words dudes 'n lady were in other bands before, but when you hear them, the only thing that will matter will be the Wrong Words. Their 7" on Trouble in Mind is a cracker, and charming, too. Some people around here have whispered to me that the Bare Wires sound really good, but seem kinda like a big put-on. Okay, trashtalkers...maybe you's just bummin' 'cos you don't like to hitch up to bandwagons when too many others are already on. Well, go ahead and get in the front of the bus for Wrong Words 'cos you're gonna love this band. I defy you to resist this, huh...

Wrong Words "What Went Wrong" music video from Chris Anderson on Vimeo.

Do you still look at band pages at MySpace???

Won't four bands take too long? NO! Lotsa gear-sharing. Quick sets leave you wanting more. This class on "how to party" will be dismissed plenty early enough for you to go pick fights at Flame Club.

First 25 guests get a free headstart on the party....Can you sip what DJ Rick is ladling???

This is the last KDVS Presents joint at The Hub of 2010, so make it worth it!
