"I can't pay my rent but I'm fucking GORGEOUS!"
Rock'N Roll never looked as gorgeous OR rocked as hard as my friends, the garage glam band Semi Precious Weapons did last night! Justin Tranter and the boys practically blew the roof off Irving Plaza and pretty much upstaged all the other acts. When you look as good and have as much star quality as Justin does....it isn't tough! Cartwheels in 6" stiletto heels doesn't hurt either. The boys have been on the road for the Perez Hilton: Presets Tour, where they have been getting INSANELY good reviews!! SPIN.com said the band "looked and sounded like the Sex Pistols -- if they had emerged from Andy Warhol's downtown Manhattan Factory scene"!! It doesn't get much better than that kids. The reaction has been so positive that they actually just got moved from the opening act to co-headliner?!?! AMAZING!!
Pre:show with Starlight and DJ Deejay!
NYC Rock'N Roll 1978After having cocktails and dinner on the LES, Lady Starlight and I were at the show with bells on.....well, studs actually but you get the idea. We decided against the VIP balcony, it's much more fun getting down and dirty on the floor. SPW really killed it for NYC and true to form, nearly killed themselves in the proccess! Not only does Justin make a complete costume change ON STAGE but also death defyingly dangled himself from the balcony railing....with no pants!
"It's a lot of responsibility being blonde: you have to be brilliant AND better that anyone else"-Justin Tranter
"Put a diamond in it and BITE down!"
Pants off, near death, guitar solo, aerobics, rockNroll.
After the performance and the meet and greet, you know what time it is: backstage madness!! All I know is that there was a bottle of Jack involved....draw your own conclusons! And then it was over. They had to pack up and leave to Canada for their gig tonight. They will be missed. Everyone go see them imediately....don't be the last to know!
