Vibraslaps Return Engagement This Friday

Posted by Paul Superapple @ 9:27 pm

The Vibraslaps return to the Preservation Pub this Friday night in Knoxville. Friday night the band bids farewell as Johnny Del Fuego has quit the band, but promised to play “one last show for you scumbags.”

Our last show at Preservation Pub earned us some new fans – we even got some publicity over at Knoxville 520 – your hub for all things Knoxville nightlife. Their review…

I have a new favorite cover band in Knoxville – The Vibraslaps. Made up of members of The French Broads, Angel & the Love Mongers and another group I can’t remember, this little band has a very mature sound, considering they were just recently formed. Last Friday, their extensive and somewhat obscure punk-pop, glam-rock song list had the whole crowd at the Preservation Pub singing and dancing along. As I waited in the long line for the restroom, I was kept occupied by animated (a.k.a. drunken) discussions of, “who sang this originally” and “what the hell’s the name of this song, again?”. I will definitely be making room in my schedule for a little more Vibra-love. (5/5) -K.S.

Sounds like a good enough reason for you to come out to me. Cover charge is cheap and the Pub has a great selection of beer on tap – so come spend Friday night with the Vibraslaps.
