The Blind Mule is bringing the underground rock of St. Petersburg’s Gino & the Goons to its intimate confines. This band’s minimalistic approach to their sound and lineup produces a huge, raging rock sound influenced by punk’s early days, allowing the band to whip their audience into a vehement dance party for their entire set.
In 2015, Slovenly Records released the band’s 7-inch vinyl EP “Check This Out.” The two-track punk explosion includes the band’s excellent rendition of the Johnny Thunders classic “Let’s Go.”
Two seemingly elusive bands will be joining these ambassadors of the St. Pete underground. Mobile’s Cyster Sister will be lending its support. This all-female group has spent the past year bringing its “harpy-power violence” punk style to the Azalea City music scene. Splatter will complete the evening’s lineup, a group Blind Mule bills as “mom and son sonic destruction.”
