City Slang: Crud at the Ritz



Industrial rockers Crud plays a show that the band are tagging “Spring Freak” at the Ritz in Warren on Friday, April 19. Doors are at 8 p.m. and tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door.

According to the press release, “Crud’s “Spring Freak” promises to be a night of thrilling live entertainment. With performances by some of the Midwest’s most provocative sideshow acts including The Revolution Circus, Apocalypse Theatre, and Detroit’s own Doppelganger Circus, this is a night guaranteed to get hearts racing! Adding to the “freak” will be snake charmer and tarot card reader Shetan Noir, Gypsy rockers Ichi Zero, plus a Lucky Monkey Tattoo giveaway! In addition to headliners Crud, alternative cabaret artists Bride Stripped Bar and hard rockers Thirteen Mile Tragedy will pump up the night’s soundtrack along with DJ Moondancer and VJ Piratek. Need even more “freak”? Rock N Rummage will be on hand selling all kinds of affordable and freaky wares!”

If there’s one thing Crud knows how to do, it’s put on a great show. Don’t miss this.
