SARAH BORGES on NEW YEARS EVE! with her band featuring BINKY, MIKE CASTELLANA and MARCO GIOVINO Thursday 12/31- IT'S NEW YEARS EVE with... SARAH BORGES and her BAND featuring BINKY, MIKE CASTELLANA and MARCO GIOVINO (Robert Plant Band of Joy) plus SPECIAL GUESTS $20 advance / $22 at the door 8:30 doors / 9:00 show www.sarahborges.com Sarah Borges returns to the Lizard Lounge for one spectacular night on New Year's Eve! She brings along an amazing all-star band featuring Sarah's friend, foil and long time bassist Binky, guitarist Mike Castellana (Blue Ribbons) and newly relocated (from Nashville) drummer Marco Giovino (best known for his work with Robert Plant's Band of Joy, Patty Griffin, and Buddy Miller.) Special guests will open the night- stay tuned for more on that! Whether it be through performances or her writing, Borges has learned to dazzle and do it well. That ability can be heard all over her 2014 Radio Sweetheart disc, as well as her upcoming follow-up, Good and Dirty, due in early 2016. She attributes that ability to a very eclectic sound, which she comes by naturally, she says. "I would say that my sound is straight up rock and roll, but it's the sum total of what my record collection looks like. The new record that I am working on is certainly more Americana than the last record was. It's also more rock than the last record. I would say that it's a version of the live shows a lot of loud guitars and loud singing. You can certainly dance to it."
Friday the 13th! BINKY at Broadway Studios
Show starts at 930pm Be there! $5 at the door
Manager: Windy Wild
Bio: BINKY blasts away all preconceived notions of female-made music as they amalgamate metal, punk and hard rock... with a trumpet.
Known as the "Mistresses of Metal", BINKY is a band of daunting intensity. Their music has been described as carnival-deathmetal. And it will hurt you.
"Binky, a superb product out of "the City", are an all-girl 4 piece. But no sugar/spice/nice junk here, these girls are fierce! The music is a sort of punk/speedmetal-art/thrash, everyone sings (drummer does most lead), there's the first ever heavy metal trumpet played by Erin Luther, excellent punk/thrash guitar of Klara Lux. Drummer Windy Wild could eat Slayer's Dave Lombardo for breakfast (while singing) and an awesome tight-clean bass guitar comes from "screaming" Tijanna Eaton. The whole band dresses in post nuclear white vinyl uniforms...sexy."
