Two of NYC's freakiest, funkiest bands join forces on Saturday February 19 at 9pm at Joe's Pub裕he Fabulous Entourage and Vic Thrill. Citing influences from glam to electronica to punk to world music, these cult favorites embody an over-the-top performance style that's 100% rock-and-roll. The Fabulous Entourage have been compared to Devo by The New York Times and to the B52s by LA Splash Magazine. This keyboard/bass/drum trio, joined by two Supremes-style backup vocalists, has forged a reputation for lush arrangements, throbbing beats, and glam-rock theatrics. They've earned a cult following for their raucous live shows, incorporating extravagant costumes and elaborate staging. AM New York writes, "their live shows kick ass!" LA Weekly says they're "freaky boy-girl art-punk sensations." It's certain you'll be seeing much more of these up-and-comers in months to come.
