We super excited for the ascendance of new rockin’ band Star Child, a collection of bad asses in black leather jackets making political (in a great punk way) garage sounds. The group, which includes Joy Spika of Southside Desire and Angie Oase formerly of Pennyroyal, launches their new cassette tonight with a bang-up lineup that includes awesome twosome The Smokes, the hardest working rockers in Twincy in The Gully Boys, and the classic sounding SparrowhawkTuesday, June 12th, 10 PM. $5.Paul Cajun
