Returning to the Strand Concert Theater, Saturday May 31st, the Twistin' Tarantulas performing their blend of acid rockabilly that will keep you twistin' all night long. Doors open at 7pm and show starts at 8:00, the Strand is BYOB and refreshments are available. Call the theater at 419-355-8548 or stop in the back door for advance tickets.
Musically, the band journeys across the American musical landscape, playing mostly their own material. They play a hybrid of Jump-Blues and Rockabilly with a modern Punk edge, avoiding most of the cliché associated with Rockabilly bands. This is no 1950s dog-n-pony show! When they do cover songs, expect the unexpected. On a given night, you'll hear Tom Waits, Bauhaus, Misfits, Motörhead, Tom Jones, Ramones, and even Kiss. The Strand is BYOB, refreshments are available, doors open at 7PM and show starts at 8:00. Opening the show will be Minglewood Labor Camp.
