WRUW Presents Punk Prom with Shannon & the Clams/Wooly Bullies

When: Sat., April 5, 8 p.m. 2014

Put on the puffy skirts and fancy up-dos! Shannon and the Clams are bringing their classic, punky doo-wop sound to Mahall’s tonight for the WRUW Punk Rock Prom. Staples like “Sleep Talk” and “Ozma” feature surfy guitars and dreamy female backing vocals while Shannon Shaw’s scratchy voice takes you on a nostalgia trip. The Chicago Reader described them as “something from a John Waters lucid dream... complete with horny teenage anthems that walk the line between greasy, frantic ’50s rock ’n' roll and innocent, hip-swinging ’60s pop." Indeed, listening to their music incites images of a darkened gymnasium with mirror ball lights flashing in romantic, musical harmony. Local act Wooly Bullies will also play. (Trenholme)
