KLYAM SHOW AT CHARLIE’S KITCHEN MONDAY 6/27!

Allow us to bring our Summer festivities indoors for an enviable show at the unrivaled Charlie’s Kitchen in Harvard Square where Mondays never have to suck.

The date is June 27th (yeah, next Monday night) and we’ve got one for you: two wild oldies cover bands and the wildest punk band in New England. Read on.

The debut of Pledge Pins – slop frat rockers cutting all the slack of garage classics. One to two minute blasts and on to the next.

Johnnie and the Foodmasters are cut from a similar cloth as PP; while the Pins are minimal, the 6 piece Elvis worshippers may be a described as a little bit much!

And what about RONG? Oh just the best punk band in Boston. Will give you the jitters like all the Boston underground noize greats and provoke inexplicable dancing and grooving.

Come through at 9 PM for $5. 21+

NOV. 16 – KLYAM Presents MOTO, Sticker Shock, Electric Street Queens, Johnnie & The Foodmasters @ Club Bohemia

It is high noon for the second to last KLYAM show of the year. First, the details. Saturday November 16 at Club Bohemia in Cambridge’s Central Square (very accessible by public transport, bike, car, whatever). Plan on arriving at 8:30 or 8:45 PM. Hand over $8 in cash and make your way down the steps to Mickey Bliss’ dank dungeon. Electric Street Queens – KLYAM alum from way back (2014’s Live From Your Dreams tape) – will start things off. They released Thank You Good Night this past summer. Their line-up has changed a bit over time, but their infectious and explosive live performance has not. Perfect way to start this wild night. Next up is Sticker Shock. They are a local KLYAM favorite for sure – a band that would fit in perfectly on a Gonerfest bill wedged between Trampoline Team and Sick Thoughts with that high gear, high speed attack. Speaking of Gonerfest. Less than two months ago, M.O.T.O joined the Memphis fest’s prolific progeny of relatively obscure, but ultra beloved performers. And we got to see them in action. Since then we’ve been dying to get Paul Caporino and crew on one of our shows and sure enough here they are headlining this one! I think I read somewhere that everyone has a favorite M.O.T.O song, but the back catalog is so damn extensive it might be near impossible for them to play all the favorites.  What a great problem to have! After M.O.T.O will be Johnnie and the Foodmasters. M.O.T.O is a tough act to follow, so the Foodmasters will have to ride off the high of that set and hopefully not clear the room. The oldies noise-mongering sextet are hoping the Boomer who called them the worst band Cambridge has seen in 40 years comes out to the gig.
