Gig Alert: Mad Sin, Phantom Rockers Tonight at
House of Blues' Pontiac Garage Club Dada
Campy, caterwauling and definitely contagious, Germany's Mad Sin has been doing its depraved punkabilly thing for over two decades. Led by singer Koefte DeVille, Mad Sin is all about everything but subtlety.
Brash and comical--but still intense--songs such as "Rusty Nails" and "Fuel for Brains" tell you just about all you need to know. Beginning with The Cramps, this genre doesn't seem to ever run out of steam, and Mad Sin is certainly no exception.
Phantom Rockers open up the festivities with a psychobilly sound that doesn't quite go to the flashy extremes of Mad Sin, but these Texans (relocated from Britain) have carved out a nifty 20 year career that shows few signs of slowing down.
All in all, a fine way to spend a hump day evening.
