oilhead: big queer rock show

Oilhead - I'm Crazy, Deal With It

Oilhead is the second of four bands participating in this March’s BIG QUEER ROCK SHOW benefit for BAGLY (Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth). The show will be going down at T.T. The Bear’s, and tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door. You should go! I’ll be there! We can stand next to one another awkwardly and pretend that we know how to “rock”.

Oh, and don’t try to give me some lame excuse that you’re “too far” to make it to the show! Hop on a plane. Plan a road trip. Teleport to the venue… Or, more realistically, take all that money you were going to put toward developing a teleportation device and make a donation to BAGLY. One dollar would work. A million dollars would work too. Three billion dollars would work even better. No pressure though!

Now, shall we get back to talking about the music?

I’m very excited to see Oilhead live, because I have an extreme weakness for female-fronted pop-punk/dance-rock groups. This may come as a surprise to regular followers of this blog (all 1.5 of you in existence), considering the lack of female-fronted pop-punk/dance-rock groups featured within these pages… But it’s absolutely true!

If you haven’t already done so, take a listen to “I’m Crazy, Deal With It” above. Should it become your new favorite song or personal anthem, you can currently pick up a copy of Oilhead’s online sampler at BandCamp through the oh-so-wonderful “name your price” model. Rumor has it that the band’s currently raising funds to record their debut EP. I’ve also heard rumors that the rewards on their Kickstarter page are extremely generous… Of course, I’m not one to gossip, so you didn’t hear it from me.
