Royal Trux, Negative Approach

When: Sat., May 13, 8 p.m. 2017

Here’s one way to celebrate. Get two of the 1980s’ most influential, uncompromising (and still unmissably excellent live) bands to play your club. That’s what’s happening at El Club, where Royal Trux and Negative Approach will play the venue’s first birthday party on Saturday, May 13. Jennifer Herrema and Neil Hagerty’s uncompromising Royal Trux essentially distilled the essence of early 1970s junkie rock and roll music, then poured it down the sink as soon as they got bored with the stuff. They began as some sort of offshoot of the excellent noise-rock act Pussy Galore, then quickly surpassed them. This very rare reunion show by Trux is a big deal. And as well all know, never miss a chance to see Negative Approach.

Price: $25-$30
