THE GIRAFFES: a Brooklyn band long legendary for nose-hair searing guitar, bumfight-ready rhythms, impromptu beer showers, and possibly the most unhinged fan base in rock. Oh, and the guy who had a heart attack on stage.
Well, he lived, and he's back. This fall, singer / rapscallion / medical miracle Aaron Lazar, the man with the seductive powers of a caravan of centaur carnival barkers, reunites with the "sex metal" Frankenstein he helped create for ONE DENVER SHOW. That's right. One.
THE GIRAFFES will be churning out every fan favorite from a back catalog ranging from 2001's "Helping You Help Yourself" through 2009's "Ruled," hit after hit belligerently blasted through a cascade of booze, snot, blood and good-natured frottage (also commonly referred to as "dancing" by the kids.) Songs you love, songs you shouted along to even as you were blacked out, songs about going home in a fucking ambulance, songs slathered in what you hope is hummus, songs your problem nephew was conceived to, songs you hear in the back of your head every time you are awaiting your results at the Chelsea Clinic.
So come through for an exclusive night of big hits, deep cuts, extended / exploratory riffage, moist undergarments and the warm smiles of the trustworthy.
