Glitter Wizard, Flytraps, Richard Rose
Friday, February 7th @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Glitter Wizard plays a unique brand of freak rock that Julian Cope once described as “unashamedly glamorous hard rock” and he’s not wrong. These San Francisco longhairs from another dimension were raised on punk and mix screaming riffs with a high octane stage show full of sequins, headbanging and a sonic attack that’ll leave you dazed and ready for the next hit. Imagine The Stooges stole the outifts from the Spiders from Mars, Dik Mik from Hawkwind and hit the stage on a speed bender.
They have assembled a legion of glitterati touring the US and Europe, playing club shows and festivals like Roadburn, Muskelrock, Duna Jam, Desert Fest, Burger Boogaloo, SXSW, Desert Daze, Psycho de Mayo and Heavy Days in Doomtown along the way.Their music has been featured in film, podcasts, the X Games, and even a low budget porno. Glitter Wizard has released 4 full-length albums, 3 EPs and are constantly working to keep the real spirit of rock n’ roll undead and feasting on the brains of young and old alike.
“Glitter Wizard is the only band I will ever serve, and I love their outfits!” – Satan
Texas & Tennessee transplants Laurence Richard and Thomas Rose joined forces in the spring of 2017. Forming and creating their first sounds in Muldoons, California, the duo eventually settled permanently in Los Angeles and Long Beach respectively. Songs were sent back and forth down I-5 and many drummers were borrowed before the two enlisted former cohorts Bag Mantrellis (drums) and Thorne Dalton (bass) to flush out the live situation. At some point during this time, sax man Gravy McKay was plucked off the sunset strip and permanently planted in the Rose garden. After a few hard livin months and a smattering of live performances, the band has a four song EP out on LA label In The Red with an LP coming in the winter of 2020. Finally the people are beginning to look like flowers. Here comes Thomas with the water can.
