Good News From The Bandit Kings

Ah, Bandits…we meet again.

What’s the Good Word?
• Tonight Friday, May 13: In honor of superstitious musicians everywhere, The Bandits are getting in cars, driving up the highway, and not stopping until they hit Portsmouth, NH. More precisely, they are not stopping until they reach the Dolphin Striker’s Spring Hill Tavern. There they will stop, unload the cars, set up some mics and stands, plug in a guitar a bass AND a keyboard, then they will stand up and play their sweet sweet rock n roll. All night. (9pm, free).

• THEN, NEXT THURSDAY, May 19 is a dream come true: That’s right. next Thursday is the night that seminal indie-rock legends, pApAs fritAs finally re-assemble in all their glory to play the Rhumbline in Gloucester, MA. They are playing TWO shows in America before they go play some big important festivals in U-ROPE. They are playing ONE show on the North Shore and it will be, at most $2 to get in. That’s if the bar charges at all. The fritAs will play this show sandwiched between two other bands that play good songs: pretty power pop rascals—The BFs, and cowpunk heart stoppers—The Bandit Kings. You’ll want to say you were there. And get there early, seating is going to be a doozy.

• Oh and we got some new press! Boston Band Crush liked our single, GoGoGo…When someone tells us to “GoGoGo,” we usually expect to be in a warzone and have grenades or thermal detonators exploding all around us. Now the problem with this is that the Bandit Kings are going to get your ass killed in the warzone. No, I don’t think we’d have any problem with them being reliable soldiers, but their version of “GoGoGo” is so easily enjoyable that you might pause to look around and savor the blue sky or an attractive patch of grass on the ground and get yourself blowed up by the enemy. But you’ll be happy, right? Read the rest here (go on, press it. You know you want to).

The Bandit Kings are:
Renee Dupuis on lead vocals and keys, Ann Marie, also on lead vocals, Dennis Monagle on drums, Joe Cardoza on bass, and Dan King on lead guitar. The Bandit Kings’ play original tunes written by the band members and hot b-sides by classic artists for longer shows. They have found bare-bones musical chemistry, including the rich meld of vocalists Ann Marie and Dupuis, who “both have voices that bring us back to the dawn of country rock, whisky soaked and raspy in just the right places while never crossing into the overpowering. The song is a rare treat that could have been tossed aside as a boring anachronism in less capable hands.” -Boston Band Crush

The Bandit Kings are a little bit country
and a whole lot of rock n’ roll.
