Dirty Penny returns to Slapsy Maxie’s (1019 Mediterranean Ave. – in/near The Continent) Thursday night in support of their glamtastic 2009 release, Young & Reckless. If you dug the late ’80s Sunset Strip sleaze metal sound (ala Motley Crue, Guns N’ Roses, Poison, LA Guns), Dirty Penny is not to be missed.
Back in October after a botched booking left the band without a venue to play in the midst of a tour with Vains of Jenna, Slapsy Maxie’s offered Dirty Penny a last-minute gig. While there wasn’t a line out the door, for a last minute show there was a decent turnout and the show was phenomenal, a true throwback to the days when I frequented long gone clubs like the Akron Agora and the “Real” Flash Gordon’s up in Cleveland.
Dirty Penny should hit the stage around 10pm. It’s 21 and over with a $5 cover charge.
