The PEPPERSPRAY (6pm)
Patti Smith. Anna Nicole Smith. Robert Smith. The Smiths. Smith & Wesson. The strobe light of celebrity flashes and the stars collide in your mind. Eclectic streams of influence merge and an electric new superband strongerges. Witness the cultural marvel that is PEPPERSPRAY! Each of these award winning Z-list megastars have marked their turf internationally in music, film, fashion, dance, design, porn and theatre. Collectively, as PEPPERSPRAY, they have dragged the age-old institution of female impersonation back into the Rock ‘n’ Roll spotlight.
This is an ass-kickin’ real live band with all the glamour and humor of a killer drag show. They’ve opened for Cher and Scissor Sisters. They’ve headlined the biggest street fairs in the US of A. The San Francisco Examiner calls PEPPERSPRAY “…a combination of The Spice Girls and The Sex Pistols”. They are impossibly cool and deliriously fun. Their live shows regularly thrill audiences of every jaded age and persuasion with a spicy set of inflammatory originals and crackling pop and rock covers.
Whoa Nellies (4:30 pm)
The Whoa Nellies are an ultra-mod sextet specializing in classic three-part harmony pop songs from the mid-to-late 60′s and early 70′s….
Special guests with Fleigh and members of Mighty Slim Pickins 5:30 pm
The Bobbleheads (7:30pm)
Formed in 2003, the Bobbleheads, John Ashfield (guitar, vocals), Phil Bulan (drums, vocals), Eugene Koh (bass) have been delighting audiences with their songs of playful yet adult elementary-school infused pop. Their melodies will stick with you long after the song is over, but don’t confuse catchy with kitschy. Their bottom line is held down by Phil’s steady-on drumming and Eugene’s rock-in-your-face bass. John’s lyrics reveal they are happy music geeks, making the perfect 3-minute song and having fun along the way. According to The Bobbleheads, the world isn’t such a bad place after all.
