Jersey punk-related band, Miss TK & the Revenge (led by husband and wife duo Ari Katz of Lifetime and Tannis Kristjanson) play a free show at Santos Party House on Tuesday, July 27th, along with Lemonade and DJ Au Revoir Simone. RSVP here.
"Led by the husband and wife duo of Tannis "Miss TK" Kristjanson on vocals, and Ari Katz aka "Mighty Lion" on drums, the six member gang of Miss TK & The Revenge have been dropping scattered bits of their punk disco dance hits since their 2004 debut XOXO on the legendary NJ punk label Gern Blandsten. Formed in the wake of the short lived Zero Zero (Katz has also spent the last 20 or so years as the singer for influential NJ punks Lifetime), Miss TK & The Revenge have been deep in the studio producing new tracks for the past few years, resulting in the dynamic new LP The Ocean Likes To Party Too."
Miss TK's new record, The Ocean Likes To Party Too, came out on July 13 on Ernest Jenning Records. It should also be noted that Lemonade's only other upcoming NYC show is August 6th at a venue called the Cove (formerly Hugs) on North 6th Street.
