Thelma and the Sleaze, Craig Brown Band, Fat Sun, Glass Body

March 30 @ 8:00 pm - 4:00 am

Thelma and the Sleaze, Craig Brown BURGER RECORDS FAT SUN Glass Body
Back in 1977, Cheap Trick wrote a song called: Southern Girls. It’s an ode to the down and dirty rock and roll vixens occupying the space south of the Mason Dixon. 40 years later we have Thelma and the Sleaze making good on the promises Robin Zander made.

Thelma and the Sleaze are a group of bad ass ladies with a penchant for Thin Lizzy and setting a good example of what can be accomplished if women unite under rock and roll. They did a stint opening for the Eagles of Death Metal, a more fitting group of road warrior pairings I cannot imagine, and have been traversing the land making friends and enemies for several years now. Their NSFW video for the single, “Maria” has been making the rounds and is a statement as much about reclaimed female sexuality as it is about rock and roll. Seriously, no matter who you are if you don’t come away from that video a little steamy under the collar, the case could be made that you’re dead; or dying; or possibly a eunuch; the point is it’s hot stuff.

Their newest offering is a cassingle called, Somebodies Doing Something with the title track of, Secretary; A ballad that bridges the divide of their influences. It’s got some shoe-gazey elements without losing any of the horn throwing rock n roll-ness that makes them such a fun live band. Why You Wanna Do That? Is the bluesy B-side soaked in sweat and even girl group harmonies reminiscent of wall of sound era Ronnie Spector. It’s a cornucopia of all of the stuff that makes rock and roll fun, sexy and ageless. “All you Southern Girls got a way with your words and you show it…” indeed, Robin Zander, indeed. – ~ Tim Moffatt / Purehoney Magazine

Craig Brown Band Third Man Records
Detroit’s most beloved bartender, cook, and ping pong champion has gone solo. Well, solo in the sense that he’s put a firecracker musical act together and called it The Craig Brown Band. The debut full-length album, “The Lucky Ones Forget,” was recorded “almost live!” by Warren Defever (His Name Is Alive) and is now available on Third Man Records. It’s a long-player filled with songs about heartbreak, drinking, and vans—built upon the work of those daring punks who embraced country music (Replacements, Meat Puppets, Tom Petty, et al.). And it’s one of 2017’s must-hear records.

Quick rewind. For years, Craig Brown shared manic lead vocals and guitar squealies in the completely unhinged punk band, Terrible Twos (Urinal Cake Records). He’s gigged with King Tuff (Sub Pop), and shredded with local Detroit weirdos the Brownstown Gals and the Mahonies. He currently rages with New Jersey’s Liquor Store—they even sell their own brand of switchblades at the merch table.

Whatever the band and whatever the avenue, Craig brings effortless musicianship and his damaged honkey-tonk howl to the mix. That is to say, he’ll shred your face off your skull and break your heart at the same time. He’ll continue to amaze with his eclectic, beyond-pro-as-fuck, take-no-prisoners guitar playing and songwriting abilities. This man has a deep love for rock n’ roll. It’s imbedded in his soul. It’s in the way he moves, thinks, lives, and plays.

Live, the Craig Brown Band might look like they slept at the club, but deliver a surprisingly polished and tuneful sound that will have even the gnarliest of disenfranchised young people pocketing their phones—for at least a few tunes, anyway. The good ol’ boys in the band, Eric, Perry and Young Andrew hold down the bedraggled hillbilly-deluxe-meets-dive-bar-classic-rock, offset by the pitch-perfect honeyed harmonies of Drinkard sisters, Caitlin and Bonnie. Just the kind of band you scratch your head to in the beginning but rave to your friends about how much they fucking rule in the end.

Craig Brown may not be God yet, but he’s definitely thrown his mustache, snapback hat and weed leggings into the ring.
