“New York, New York”
A Tribute Show
Friday 13th May 2011
Featuring: Damien Lovelock / Rob Younger / Link Meanie / Shaggin wagon + Carrie Phillis
On Boxing Day 1999, the Celibate Rifles played their recorded-live-at-CBGB album ‘Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang’ at Goldmans (Newtown RSL) and asked Shaggin’ Wagon to open the proceedings with a set of New York punk classics in honour of that iconic venue (CBGB, not Goldmans…) Eleven or so years later, the memory of that set still burned inside Rifles’ vocalist Damien Lovelock, and he had the bright idea to revisit it on a somewhat larger scale…and this is the result.
New York, New York will feature songs from The Velvet Underground, Blondie, Talking Heads, The Rammones, Television, Patti Smith, New York Dolls, Dictators, Suicide, Blue Oyster Cult and many many more. Shaggin Wagon (featuring ‘stunt guitairist’ Matt Galvin of the Happy Hate Me Nots) will be the house band for the evening with vocalists Damien Lovelock (Celibate Rifles), Rob Younger (New Christs/Radio Birdman), Link McLennan(Meanies/The Bakelits Age) and Carrie Phillis (Booby Traps/Downtown Three).
Tickets are now on sale for this once in a lifetime show, with a once in a lifetime lineup, and are available via zombie dog entertainment
