City Slang: Five bands to be thankful for



With Thanksgiving fast approaching, a show has been announced for Thanksgiving Eve, Wednesday Nov 23, taking place at PJ’s Lager House in Detroit (one of the city’s best venues, without a doubt). Cover is just $6 and there are a full five bands on the bill.

The line up is superb. Jeecy & the Jungle open it up (“Weird, no-wave soul with anti-hero front man with bizarro rag-tag back up.) Next is K.I.D.S. (“Former Silverghost/Bang Bang/Von Bondies churning out melodically intelligent post-punk jams via the super fine adenoidal din of Deleano Acevedo. “).

Mexican Knives is in the middle (“Female-fronted (Loretta Lucas) pop rock with members of the Dirtbombs, et al.”), followed by gardens (“Handsome dudes play stripped down jams. Classic rock formula.”), and Twine Time round it off (“Newly formed new Detroit band with a Compulsive Gamblers-esque   Members of the Decks/Deadbeat Beat and Kommie Kilpatrick.”)

How fucking great is that?
