Wham, Glam, Thank You Ma’am

By Captain America

With a name like Glitter Dick, a band isn’t likely to get much commercial airplay. However, as Albuquerque’s newest glam-trash group, Glitter Dick is on everyone’s lips. Figuratively speaking, of course.

An interview with L.A. Guns’ Tracii Guns

By Jessica Cassyle Carr

A raunchy creation propagated from the Sunset Strip’s infamous ’80s metal scene, L.A. Guns is an old-salt act with nearly 30 years of rock action under its studded belt. Aesthetically, the group is part glam and part punkblack hair, aviators, tattoos and motorcycle jackets laden with skull and pistol imagery have long lent an air of playful toughness. Aurally, the group is quintessential hair metalrock and roll songs that deal with girls and hell-raising punctuated by killer shredding.

Party Shots: La Jaula!

Here's what you missed if you missed it

The Alibi's Group Hug Glam Pride Party was a smashing success and dazzlingly fun. Casa Esencia started off really swank and we filled it with beautiful people.
Kicking-off the night was La Jaula, and not only are they terrific musicians, they're also all really good looking.

Glam dance party tomorrow! Fooooood.

I just got off the phone with Lou French of Standard Diner, which will be providing 300 appetizers at tomorrow’s Pre-Pride Glam Dance Party. Rodeo Grill will also be serving an array of delicious snacks.

All of these canapés come with the $10 door charge. The fabulous affair unfurls tomorrow inside the secluded Casa Esencia, a gorgeous party spot housed in the old Maria Teresa’s restaurant on 800 Rio Grande NW.

DJs Nicolatron, Tahnee, Mello and Cassyle (our music editor!) will spin glam rock, disco and electro. La Jaula will kick off the evening with Cuban boleros, Argentinian tangos and Mexican ballads at 7 p.m. Plus, a drag show!

Self Serve will provide dozens of free goodies, and you can unearth VIP tickets to Saturday’s PrideFest during the scavenger hunt.

Hanoi Rocks Tuesday

“Lightning Bar Blues” by Hanoi Rocks

I always wrote off Hanoi Rocks as another lame, fake-o-tron ‘80s hair band ... until last night, when I was convinced otherwise. Much of the Finnish four piece’s early music, especially the song posted here, sounds like ‘70s power pop and glampunk. Sadly, at some point the dudes did fall victim to the generic ‘80s glam metal formula, but prior to that it’s pretty bitchin.’
