You know we all l-o-v-e glam punk rockers Pool Party around here. Lead singer Creep Guirdo's quirky answers to our deeply probing questions make our day. But Guirdo's wit isn't the only best thing about this cray cray band. Watching Pool Party perform is like watching musical standup. They get you to laugh with their lyrics, and their instruments are often punch lines. These fuckers are funny and cool and a little dorky, like in the best way possible.
Last night, they kicked of their minitour of Florida, called "Severe Party Would Tour," at the Vagabond. They'll be playing dates in Orlando and Saint Pete and closing out at the Snooze. Bathing suits aren't required, but be cool and wear your bikini anyway.
