City Slang: The Ruiners get Handcuffed



This Saturday, December 15, the Ruiners will play Northern Lights on a bill with Chicago’s the Handcuffs. Show starts at 10, and cover is $5.

We all know how good a live show our own Ruiners put on, and the fact that their new album is awesome. Apparently these Handcuffs ain’t too shabby either.

A statement says, “When you see The Handcuffs live, you're not only getting a balls-out, tight, sexy rock show, you'll also get to see front-woman Chloe F. Orwell's famously awesome boot collection as well as drummer Brad Elvis's astounding skills behind the kit. The two, who describe their partnership as, "Two musical rebels handcuffed together through thick and thin" sound like "T-Rex and the Ting Tings straddling Goldfrapp".”
