TVD Live Tease (...and a ticket Giveaway!) | The Blackberry Belles, Mondo Topless, & The Electric Mess, Friday (9/3) at the Black Cat

We've got a pair of tickets for tomorrow night's garage rock throwdown at the Black Cat in exchange for your request for them in the comments to this post (with a contact email address!)—and we've got The Blackberry Belles' Tony Ferrari on why you should put down that Nuggets box set and see it all happen live:

On Friday, September 3rd, my band, The Blackberry Belles, has the pleasure of sharing the Black Cat Mainstage with two amazing garage rock outfits, Mondo Topless and The Electric Mess. If you enjoy psychedelic garage punk infused with primitive R&B this is the bill for you.

Opening the show are The Electric Mess from New York City. I have come to believe that Esther Crow's time travel experiments in a dank makeshift basement laboratory in mid 1960's Brooklyn are paying off in dividends. Beyond inspired, The Electric Mess are the embodiment of 1960's psychedelic rock'n'roll lunacy. Check out the video for their single "You've Become a Witch" and be prepared to lose your mind.

Headlining from Philadelphia are Mondo Topless. These guys are in my opinion The Real Deal when it comes to keeping the torch lit for the artists found in the Nuggets collection. This is garage punk at its grimiest. Their stage show is a frenzied, beer fueled onslaught of R&B madness with a sight to behold and a sound to shake your very core. They just put out their 5th record "Freaking Out" on Get Hip Recordings.

My band, The Blackberry Belles will take to the stage in the middle of the night's line up with hopes of mesmerizing the crowd with our brand of primordial rock'n'roll. We're currently working on proper recordings,and we have a rough mix of "Listen Baby" here for your enjoyment. We hope to see you there and we promise to raise a commotion.

Friday, September 3rd, Black Cat Mainstage, 9:00pm $10.00 all ages
