Fans of Cleveland’s glam-punk superstars Vanity Crash are celebrating as the band makes a rare appearance at a nightclub best known for kicking back, kicking ass, and kicking out the jams.
For their gig at Shaker’s Tavern, the Crashers are pulling out all the stops, with extended sets by David Bowie, the Velvet Underground and the Beatles, infused with a generous selection of their own sizzling original material culled from their five releases.
The band will reprise material performed at recent shows such as “When Andy Met Lou,” focused on Andy Warhol, Lou Reed and the inception of the Velvet Underground, plus shows on all phases of David Bowie’s career, including his epochal Ziggy Stardust period, and his final album, Blackstar.
This show also marks the singing debut of guitarist Matthew Angel, to be featured on a classic rock nugget that is sure to have everyone singing along. Along the way, Virginia Plain Crash will take the lead on a Velvet Underground number, Thomas Anonymous will bravely lead the charge on a few iconic songs, and founder Dennis Van Crash will carry the weight with his captivating lead vocals, scintillating guitar and most outrageous outfits.
The band next retreats to the rehearsal studio to prepare for an extensive series of gigs in October on The Birth of Punk in Cleveland, Akron and Kent.
If you’re hungering for some live Vanity Crash, now is your chance.
Don’t miss the excitement.
