Santa Cruz, CA band Dirty Penny will be making a stop at Cain’s Ballroom 2nd Stage Friday, August 13, 2010. Along with special guests and local Oklahoma bands; Firstryke and Beyond What’s Given.
Citing influences such as: Mötley Crüe, Poison, Guns ‘N Roses, and L.A. Guns – Dirty Penny has not only embraced and absorbed the sex-fueled, leather-encased sound and image, they’ve brought it to a new generation, shoved it down their pants, thrown it against the wall a few times, and tattooed it into their souls.
Dirty Penny was originally a Poison cover band, ironically called Antidote. They later had to drop Antidote due to a Dutch band of the same name.
Bassist Tyno Molinaro (Tyno Vincent) said this about the band:
"We were into old-school punk, like The Misfits, when we first got into music, then got into glam as a FU to our hometown…But punk’s got a lot of rules, and that’s not very punk. Rock’n’roll doesn’t have any rules — everybody can do drugs or not do drugs or dress however they want. A lot of people are tired of the screamo/I’m-not-okay thing. It’s like, everyone’s not okay, you know? Forget about it. Have fun. That’s what you do with music — you forget about your sh*%." “Antidote was like our training wheels when we were learning how to play, but I consider the start of our band as being when we became Dirty Penny and recorded our album…There are a lot of haters…We’re labeled a cover band in Santa Cruz and that’ll probably never change, but it’s cool to go out and experience respect for what we’re doing now from older metal bands.”
If you are into good time rock n roll and are a fan of any of the aforementioned bands, this is the show for you. "The Boys" as they like to be called, are fresh off the 2010 Rock N America show in OKC and will be bringing their "Take It Sleazy" style and passion to this show.
