6/9 7:30PM – Come see the Feathers featured in TWANG BANG: A Hot Night of Twisted Twang, Hillbilly Music & Sexy Burlesque!
With: The Dirty Hand Family Band + The Famous + The Shants + The Rogers
There are two kinds of twang in this world; good and bad. Twang Bang is a combination of them both. Part rockabilly blues, part post-punk Americana, part slow-burning alt-country, part dirty country-rock with a groove, and laced with the sexiest burlesque dancers in these parts. It’s good to be bad!
THE HOT PINK FEATHERS (SF)
Where Carnaval meets Cabaret : Hot Pink Feathers perform World Cabaret Showgirl dance. Recently voted “Best Dance Company” in the SF Bay Guardian “Best of the Bay” polls, the Feathers are committed to Delighting the World, One Showgirl at a Time. Think Busby Berkeley choreographing an ethnic dance festival, with Carmen Miranda, Josephine Baker, Lola Montez & Little Egypt as his side kicks.
THE DIRTY HAND FAMILY BAND (SF)
We came together with one common idea; that our songs should sound good on stage or around a front porch. We are story tellers. We tell of our lives and how we came together, pulling from old-time gospel, country and blues. Making light of dark times, we sing hymns that skip rocks on the soul. All are welcome in The Dirty Hand Family Band. Bring A shaker or shake your ass, either way it’s a damn good time!
THE FAMOUS (SF)
A shot of classic country with a post-punk chaser.
“If country music’s original outlaws had made their break with Nashville in the post-punk era, it might have sounded a lot like the Famous.” –No Depression
“The Famous arrange a standoff between the Pixies in a cowboy hat and Hank Williams on speed, six-shooters loaded with punk and rockabilly, and whaddya know – that bastard alt-country genre gets shot square in the forehead, with a stray bullet no less.” —West Coast Performer
THE SHANTS (Oakland)
The Shants’ slow-burning sound originates from the rural backgrounds of its members: from South Louisiana delta pines, to the brusk plains of Minnesota to the rolling hills of the Central California Coast. The Shants now call Oakland, California home.
THE ROGERS (Oakland)
The Rogers create their own take on Americana, borrowing from alt-country, gypsy jazz, folk, honky-tonk, afro-rhythm, sweet slide guitar, as well as dueling guitars.
