The Boston Derby Dames were sitting around one lonely night after the rink had closed, wondering what to do with themselves. Pussy Venom wanted to dance, or go to outerspace. Malicen Thunderland wanted to get metal, or maybe go bowling. Kitty Twister couldn't decide if she was feeling a little bit country or a little bit rock 'n' roll. Just as they were hitting up Google for ideas, Evilicious spilled a cocktail on the computer. Amidst the smoke and sparks, this monster mash-up of a musical lineup was created. Now everyone is happy.
DJ Paul Foley starts it off spinning retro dance classix, followed by the Olympia-flavored electropop of Nicky Click. Fur Purse turns up the volume with punk covers by the likes of the Subhumans, Runaways, and Misfits. And a BDD favorite, Slim Jim and the Mad Cows return from the recording studio with their countryfried metal versions of Judas Priest and Motorhead.
Bring your dancing shoes and limber up for some headbanging. And get your Halloween costume ready early--the best one wins 2 tickets to the Boston Derby Dames' November 10 bout.
