Meet The Vibraslaps

Posted by Paul Superapple @ 11:28 pm

This Friday night marks the second gig in as many years for the thrown-together cover-band insanity that is the Vibraslaps.  The band was thrown together for charity for the Blue Cats’ Doc Rock show last January and we’ve decided to do it again this year. 

The band consists of Jim Rivers and John Baker (from the French Broads), Eric Nowinski (Angel & the Love Mongers) and myself, Paul Superapple (too many bands to mention).  We’ll be playing a wide-range of obscure and not-so-obscure covers from The Knack, Greg Kihn Band, The Clash, Big Star, Nick Lowe, XTC, Tom Petty, and a whole bunch of other stuff that we just feel like playing for no damn good reason.

The Doc Rock show is a mix of bands that (*gasp*) include doctor/musicians and the entire lineup is playing for East Tennessee healthcare-related charities.  It’s good fun for a good cause at Blue Cats – show starts at 7:30 pm prompt this Friday, Jan 5.

You can also catch the Vibraslaps later that same evening at the Preservation Pub – 9:30 pm sharp.
