Franken-Party! – So what is a Franken-Party?
It’s when you throw all kinds of epic stuff into one night. Three awesome bands, 2 tours crossing paths (MeteorEYES’ Winter Migration Tour and the kick off of The Sexual Side Effects’ Franken-Tour!) Add tons of Art by John Adelung, Roberto Hernandez and others. Then sprinkle in Body Painting, Go-Go Dancers, and an Epic Light Show. If that’s not enough just add drunk half-naked people into the mix and wah-lah! Franken-Party!
The Atlanta-based The Sexual Side Effects defy easy categorization, seamlessly combining elements of ‘80s post-punk and New Wave with modern pop and indie, served with a healthy splash of space-rock psychedelia, but the band’s overriding focus is clear: bringing their haunting and majestic brand of music to the masses. Led by main songwriter Amber Taylor, a dynamic presence whose experiences as a transgendered person color the lyrical narrative, the group—also including Clay McClure (drums), Ryan McDougall (guitar) and Mike Sidner (bass)—are on a mission to touch hearts and minds with Taylor’s message, while captivating eardrums with the band’s breathtaking sound.
The band is busy preparing a new release for 2013, tentatively slated for the spring.
According to Taylor, listeners should expect more of the passionate lyricism and eclectic soundscapes that make High Maintenance so unforgettable.
MeteorEYES is an explosion of sounds in a room.
Indie/synth/electro-pop rock quintet!
Dance filled beats outlined with catchy vocal melodies phrasing around love and adventure on an epic level. Guitar tones painting portraits with your ears and electronic bass filled keys leaning forward in momentum to keep the room moving. Formed in 2008, [MeteorEYES] has done four national tours around the US.
WE ♥ dance parties!
Go, Robo! Go! is a post-pop/nerd rock band hailing from Atlanta, GA. Since 2007, the five-piece rock group has been collectively entertaining audiences and non-audiences with their blend of catchy rock and roll and undeniable good looks. With lyrics that draw inspiration from tentacle monsters, apocalyptic scripture, gay romance in the 1800s, and demon possession – and a sound that combines new-age electronics and programming with old-school, fiery guitar-driven rock, the band touts a catalog that is equally as dynamic as their energetic, critically acclaimed live show. Celebrating the release of their new EP, Mustache Rides for the Blind, the band is looking forward to a year of giant explosions and uncomfortable noises.
