The vivacious, soul melting vocal blend will be opening for none other than the “Queen of Rockabilly,” Wanda Jackson at Pappy and Harriet’s this Friday followed by a sure to light your skirt on fire performance at the new Big Rock Pub in Indio, Saturday.

Rhythm, backbeat, sonic pictures, tone. Let it spill on the page like a tune you can't get out of your head. I think now of the three-woman Nashville band, their creativity unbound and easy, joyous and ripe, spinning musical magic from Southern summer heat, swampass, and sorry one-night stands. Bang!Bang!"
Flamboyant and trashy sexy (so much glitter and so much make up!) locals Bang! Bang! (not to be confused with Bang! Bang! Bang!) opened, playing a quick and dirty set of upbeat, funny tunes, one of which was a break-up song about a woman's dog pissing on her lover's flannel shirt. (By the way, she's keeping the damn dog, even if she promises it won't pee on anymore clothing.) After a few more sultry tunes, the band left the stage as a woman in a hot dog costume ran on and threw Bang! Bang! koozies into the audience. Well, OK.
