Starbenders – Album Release Show w/ Next Year’s End and Forrest Isn’t Dead at The Masquerade
Thursday, February 13th at 7:00pm
Hailing from the ATL, Starbenders are the half way home for misunderstood misfits, fringers and glam punks. Front-woman, Kimi Shelter and her gang have concocted a perfect alchemic blend of androgynous rock and roll power with “stuck in your brain” pop melodies. Imagine David Bowie playing 7 minutes in heaven with Debbie Harry.

Marc E. Bassy – PMD Tour at The Loft
