Petty Morals kept the fun times going at Once, blasting their rockin’ electro-boppers through the ballroom to help a friend.
Petty Morals brought the dance punk party to TT’s to celebrate the release of their new spilt 7″ with Party Bois. Shazam!
Classy, fun and packing a punch, Petty Morals kicked the Rumble Finals party into high gear. Their songs are infectious. They worked in a shout out to Amy Douglas of Feints* that morphed into “Rainbow In The Dark.”** They made sure the TT’s crowd was having a good time. Petty Morals made a lot of new friends and fans at this year’s Rumble.
* They did a partial cover of “Make Love To Me” by Amy’s other project, SPF 5000.
** Which in turn morphed into Petty Morals’ staple Rumble cover, “Neutron Dance.”
Petty Morals just went off like a ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb. These girls were tossing out punked-up, pop-rockin’ firecrackers all night. TT’s was gettin’ loose. Petty Morals take the win in Rumble Semifinal Night #1.
Kapow! Petty Morals just blew the roof off of TT’s. No other way to put it. A potent blend of punk rock and ’80s pop, they delivered the most fun set of The Rumble so far and punched themselves a ticket to the semifinals.
How do you celebrate a new record? Do what Cult 45 did for On High. First, get Chelsea On Fire to reunite for the release show. Then get White Dynomite and Slim Lizzy* on the bill. At the end of the night you can take the stage and pummel the crowd with a fantastic set of heavy boogie. Just like Cult 45 did.
* On the anniversary of Phil Lynott’s passing, no less.
Any band that can pull off a cover a Sabbath’s “The Mob Rules” is OK in my book. So… Cult 45, you’re OK in my book.
Cult 45 represented the horn-throwing underbelly of Boston rock during Preliminary Night #3 of the 2011 Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble. Rippin’ guitar riffs, driving bass, pounding drums and wailing vocals are the name of the game here. Cult 45 has all of these in spades.
