Excerpt from ROAD REPORT:
Anyone in New York looking for rock and roll this past Friday had to look no further than Gramercy Theatre. Simple concept: Bring food for the homeless and watch great rock and roll music. Hosted by Luc Carl, four bands: NEES and VOS, BROTHERS NYC, SEX SLAVES, and THE DIRTY PEARLS, shook the joint for four plus hours; leaving behind an energized crowd that could rest assured that rock music is still going strong in their city.
I arrived during BROTHERS NYC set that can be best described as impressive honky-tonk rock with an attitude. Next up the SEX SLAVES (Del Cheetah, J Bomb, and Eric13).
One of the greatest feelings is seeing a band (you listen to regularly) live for the first time and having a “WHOA” moment. For me, this first happened fifteen years ago when I saw GREEN DAY live. Five minutes into the SEX SLAVES set, it happened again.
