I am pleased to announce two of my current favorite acts, The STRANGE BOYS and The COATHANGERS will be playing at Lounge on Elm St on Friday, July 10th. Both these bands have gained a lot of exposure since last year when they played together in Dallas. Besides recent praise in Rolling Stone magazine, Austin’s The Strange Boys finally released their debut LP, And Girls Club, on In The Red records this past March.
On Tuesday, April 7th, Atlanta’s The Coathangers will release their 2nd album, Scramble; their first full-length LP for Suicide Squeeze. (REVIEW) In the past few years, I have had both these bands play at the charming Pastime Tavern on separate occasions and as mentioned above, together at Club Dada last summer. Most recently, The Coathangers played here in March at SxSFlesh and The Strange Boys played at Doublewide on April 2nd. The openers will be Bad Sports (mem. of Wax Museums).
