In support of his recent critically-acclaimed solo album, Re-Licked, Stooges guitarist James Williamson will be gathering together many of the noted singers & musicians that helped him resuscitate 14 early Iggy Pop/ Williamson-penned Stooges rarities for the record (many that only diehard fans know from subpar bootlegs and sketchy unofficial releases). Joining the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer on vocals for this very special one-off performance on Jan. 16th at The Bootleg in L.A will be Alison Mosshart (The Kills/ Dead Weather), Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys), Lisa Kekaula (The Bellrays), Joe Cardamone (Icarus Line), Carolyn Wonderland, Ron Young (Little Caeser) and The Richmond Sluts, with others to be announced soon. These vocalists will all be backed by the band of Gregg Foreman (keys & guitar), Michael Urbano (drums), Dan Rothchild (bass) and, of course, Williamson and his own signature search-and-destroy guitar attack.
RNR PARTY ALL NIGHT !!

THE RICHMOND SLUTS has a show on 01/16/2015 at 08:00 PM @ Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles, CA http://www.reverbnation.com/q/5humtr #concert
“The Richmond Sluts formed in 1998, in the Richmond District. Imagine the NY Dolls on LSD, with a little bit of the Cramps and the Rolling Stones thrown in to keep it both weird and glammy. I have vague memories of hearing this band play at a few parties back in the day, but I have to say I don’t remember it sounding nearly as tight as it did the other night. Frontperson Shea Roberts also looks nothing like the Stiv Baters (of the Dead Boys) gaunt 20-year-old look-alike I remember either. While the Sluts don’t really have the same excuse for playing trashy, angsty, garage rock about sex, drugs, and rock’n’roll as their post-pubescent selves did back in the late ‘90s, it doesn’t really matter, cause their talent has matured enough to take the material to whole other level. Said Shea, “I know some of the lyrics are a little goofy sometimes and the stuff I'm writing now tends to be a bit more serious…but Maybe we shouldn't take ourselves so seriously.””
