A Giant Dog at Empty Bottle

August 13 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm

$5

A GIANT DOG is raucous ear candy culled from the hook-driven melodies of Slade, the glammy swagger of Marc Bolan, the morbid fantasy of Killer-era Alice Cooper, and the unpredictable wit of Sparks. Sabrina and Andrew’s lyrics, equal parts brutally honest, clever, and debased, have a knack for taking their idiosyncratic depravities and making them feel universal. These songs are by, for, and about the losers, freaks, and outcasts. The lonely. The terminally horny. Boozehounds and party animals. No band better speaks to the hearts of slackers, burnouts, rockers, sluts, and creeps everywhere than A GIANT DOG.

The ugliest parts of Meat Wave, Lil’ Tits and Foul Tip, have locked arms to create HITTER, a new melodic assault on your feeble eardrums. Under the influence of heavy metal, whiskey, leather, rock, and rockin’, they’re barricading the exits, plugging in permanently and cranking all knobs to the right. You losers better learn, only HITTER is real. See you in hell.

BEV RAGE (Beverly) & THE DRINKS (Aaron, Sam & Trevor) from Chicago are a queercore band with a healthy dose of garage rock, snacking, and sexual confusion thrown in the mix. BEV brings the pearly yellows, THE DRINKS bring the talent and you bring the fuck yeah.
