Cherie Currie @ Revolution Bar & Music Hall - 11/8/13
Former Runaways singer Cherie Currie is seemingly getting closer to the release of her long-awaited solo album, but ahead of that she's on a solo tour which began in NYC at Gramercy Theatre last week (11/6). After the NYC show, the tour hit a few other venues in surrounding areas, including Amityville's Revolution Bar & Music Hall on Friday (11/8). Pictures of that Long Island show are in this post.
Cherie played a couple songs from the upcoming solo album, including "Mr. X" and her cover of Sweeney Todd's "Roxy Roller." She also played a number of Runaways songs -- "Cherry Bomb," "American Nights," "Queens of Noise" and more -- plus covers of The Velvet Underground's "Rock and Roll" (which she dedicated to Lou Reed), Tommy James & the Shondells' "Draggin' the Line," and her set-ending rendition of David Bowie's "Rebel Rebel," which was featured on the soundtrack to the Runaways movie and has also been covered by former Runaway Joan Jett. Speaking of, Joan was in attendance at the Long Island show (pictured below), but didn't make any appearances on stage. Instead of an encore, Cherie hung out with fans and very kindly signed anything and everything all the fans handed her.
