Chrome Cranks

"After last year's already legendary reunion shows, New York City's infamous garage/punk-blues/noise kings the Chrome Cranks are once again ready to roundly kick the world squarely in its soft, pathetic, and pain-deserving ass--this time with two more hotly anticipated performances: at the Cake Shop in New York on May 28 and the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on May 29.

2009's visceral and devastating shows in New York and Europe by the Chrome Cranks' best and best-known lineup--vocalist/guitarist Peter Aaron, guitarist William Weber, drummer Bob Bert, and bassist Jerry Teel--were a revelation for long-time fans as well as those who'd missed the band during its 1990s heyday. Indeed, many raved that the Cranks are better now than they were the first time around. Since the reunion the group has remained together, working on material for a new album that promises to be every bit as blistering--if not more--than the quartet's pivotal '90s releases."

The shows are tonight (5/28) at Cake Shop and Saturday at Knitting Factory. More details and a video below...

bonnaroo would never do something like put arcade fire up against soundgarden. or strokes vs gaga. thats why these festivals with curfews are not worth going to. you have to miss tons of bands you'd want to see.

Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
