SCB presents crazed bands THE RATS OF NEW YORK and THE PIGGIES at the 19th installment of SmashCrashBash!!, a monthly rock ’n’ roll-themed party at the Half Moon in Hudson, NY, on Friday, June 5, beginning at 9pm. SmashCrashBash!! features live performances by the tops in totally rockin’, hand-picked touring bands and DJs spinning the best in punk, garage, vintage glam, rock ’n’ roll, and old-school R&B for your dancing and screaming pleasure.
Formed in Mole City, under the NYC subway trains, THE RATS OF NEW YORK bash out tuneful, catchy, hard-edged, melodic punk descended from such unquestionable sources as the Undertones, the Buzzcocks, and the Ramones.
Brooklyn slop rockers THE PIGGIES have a perfectly trashy split single out on the great Norton Records label (the other side features the Crystals’ La La Brooks!) and make bluesy sounds a la the Flamin’ Groovies, the Real Kids, and the Rolling Stones.
DJing at the June 5 blast will be Ted Barron (Boogiewoogieflu.blogspot,
WFMU) and Stately Wayne Manor (Swamp Fiction Records).
Held on the first Friday of every month, SmashCrashBash!! is the loudest, best, rowdiest—and only—real rock ’n’ roll party in the Hudson Valley. See ya there!
