If the thought of a quiet night at home makes you want to puke at maximum volume in quadraphonic stereo, do yourself a favor and spend tonight with a full-blown ear colonic courtesy of local queens of badassdom The Cathy Santonies and rock hooligans Dumpster Babies at the latest legendary CHIRP Whistler night! There will be raffle prizes, booze and babes! Rock out and drink up them fancy cocktails, because a portion of the bar proceeds benefit CHIRP!
The Cathy Santonies describe themselves as “a subversive mix of riot grrrl & cock rock.” Translation? They’re unafraid to speak their minds like Joan Rivers and shred for days like AC/DC. The Cathy Santonies are Radio Santoni on vocals, Mojo Santoni on lead guitar, Jane Danger on rhythm guitar and they’re looking for a new drummer. So who knows? Maybe you can come out and audition. Their new EP is “I’m Yr Friend! I’m Yr Revolution.” You can hear it at http://cathysantonies.com/music and live at The Whistler Sept 20. Or you can miss it and flog yourself in shame ‘til your arms fall off.
If Dumpster Babies isn’t one of the greatest band names in rock, it’s at least one of the most offensive. God bless America! These four guys hilariously list their sound as “emotronic/Chinese traditional/Crunk.” It’s also poppy, loud and garagey. Dumpster Babies do it with lots of fuzz. They do it with lots of catchy harmonies. And they generally do it in under three minutes. Get a taste at http://www.myspace.com/dumpstababies or see them open for The Cathy Santonies at this month’s CHIRP Whistler Night. We want to see you there.
