City Slang: Amy Gore news



Amy Gore & Her Valentines play One Eyes Betty’s in Ferndale tonight (Saturday, July 21), then the Michigan Summer Beer Festival in Ypsilanti next Friday, July 27.

The gig in Ferndale is a no cover show, and it kicks off at 9 p.m. Ghost Wolves open proceedings, and a limited edition CD-Video Single will be available.

Amy says, “A new blog series is in the works coming atcha from my website. I'll share what it was like recording the album and making our videos. Stay tuned!”

“Amy Gore and Her Valentines came together organically and quickly gelled into a band that sounds like they’ve spent years together. Their dramatic stage presence demands attention – great song craft and unforgettable melodies will keep audiences in thrall long after that first glance.”

But that’s not it. On Monday, July 30, the band opens for Shonen Knife at the Lager House. This is a hell of a double bill. Here you have Japanese all-girl bubblegum pop-punk band Shonen Knife trading punches with our very own Amy Gore & Her Valentines. It's a Go-Go-off at the Lager House, as the bands will fight to decide who best conjures the spirit of the Shangri-Las and the Ronettes, both injecting some Cheap Trick power and Ramones 'tude.
