 - Apparently Pom Pom Girls showed up a couple hours before the show and asked if they could open the show ‘cause their guitar player was going back to Japan in three days. Pretty random way to start, but also memorable.

Apparently Pom Pom Girls showed up a couple hours before the show and asked if they could open the show ‘cause their guitar player was going back to Japan in three days. Pretty random way to start, but also memorable.

Sure, it was J-pop but it had the occasional “heavy-ish” twist and some fun vocal playoffs. Good energy, which translated well for the rest of the night.

Next up, the Mishits – which, luckily, were everything you would expect. Misfit songs, water pistols, go-go dancers, props. Check, check, check. Very strong first impression, especially for their second show.

Bloody Betty was minus “the deadly sins” for the tour, so it was a pretty brief performance from the gorelesque mistress. Still, plenty of comedic moments with the fire, sparklers and ketchup.

Lust Boys (note name change) finally had some new material since last I saw them, as well as G N’ R and Van Halen covers. Boys are still as sleazy as ever, and while the loss of a bass player has reduced their visual foot print, it gives them more room to move! Definitely a good time, as long as you know what you’re getting into. Rounding out the night BB returned, dressed in tighty whities and fake moustache. To do what? A GG Allin cover of course! Not sure if it was the booze, but I was blown away. Lust Boys did a good job playing all the actual songs, and should be commended for playing back to back.

As they kept playing the antics kept getting better and better! Fake penis, fake urination by mishits singer, fake overdose ending. Crazy!
