Thee 50's High Teens!

Last Friday I went to see Thee 50's High Teens at the El Bar in Fishtown. The show is part of the group's first US tour. The performance was everything I had hoped for and more: Big hair, loud screaming, rhythmic chants, 60's classics and vampire costumes.

Their English was adorably awful. The organ player, Yocci, was the host. She had a cheat-sheet with her speeches but in the spirit of spontaneity she put it away and used two phrases for the rest of the night "Drink beer!" and "Congratulations!"

Needless to say, the crowd loved them and I did too.
