King’s X is an American rock band that combines progressive metal, funk and soul with vocal arrangements influenced by gospel, blues and British Invasion rock groups. Ranked No. 83 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock, Starch Monkey is proud to be featured, rocking an opening set for the March 1st show at the World Famous Whisky a Go Go.
“When I first heard we had an opportunity to open for King’s X, I freaked out, I love these guys, I have all or their records. They are so precise and tight.” recalls Starch Monkey bassist Wetmore. “I can’t wait to play the Whisky, we’re crafting a special set of our songs to set the perfect tone for night.”
The March 1st show will also feature sets by King’s of Spade and The Hard Way. Starch Monkey goes on at 7:45, See you guys there!!!
Hollywood sleaze rocker Faster Pussycat made their mark in the world with a self-titled debut in 1987 and the 1989 Gold album Wake Me When It’s Over, which spawned the hit songle and video “House Of Pain”. Several albums and years of touring followed. And in 2016, you can rest assured that Faster Pussycat’s music still pounds on the heart and the senses.
Featuring opening sets by LA’s own STARCH MONKEY, THE BULLET BOYS & L.A. GUNS’ Tracii Guns.
Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots will always remain an important part of music history. As a band who is influenced by this genre and as fellow rockers, we are saddened to hear of Scott’s passing. Rest in Peace.
