The Bad Dates, the Whore Moans

Saturday, August 9

Like your punk fast, easy, grrltastic and snarled out by a honey in Cherie Currie's fishnets and sexy underpants? Then the Seattle's own Bad Dates maybe just your cup of tea. Their take on girl punk (with a boy drummer in tow) isn't reinventing the wheel by any means, but they are a fun, solidly raucous soundtrack for a night of dressing up, shooting whiskey and flirting with other girls' boyfriends. Make sure to stick around for the always amazing Whore Moans, who are also quite worthy of a new outfit, inspire whiskey swigging and are so redonkulously cute that, if there is such a thing as groupie heaven, they'd qualify as the house band. These boys have got a new double disk due out at summer's end, and had a line around the corner for two blocks to get into their show at the Capitol Hill Block Party, signaling they may soon be on the way to much bigger venues.
