Music: Stomping garage rock by The 509ers, The Sparkomatics Fri., Sept. 13, at 7:30 PM

The 509ers and The Sparkomatics share a garage rock bill at Best Video Performance Space on Friday, Sept. 13. The show starts at 7:30 PM and the cover is a sliding scale of $5-10 (pay what you can in that range).

The 509ers are a garage rock outfit from New Haven, CT. They have been kicking around the local music scene in various configurations for nearly thirty years and formed as The 509ers in 2009. Former angry young men, now grizzled and older, The 509ers still have something to say about the state of the world and it is not complimentary… but it is honest, loud, and raw.

The 509ers played as Thing’s Fingers from 1987-91 in New Haven, CT . Post ’91, they continued in various configurations including FU69, the Cryptones, and the Danglers. The original members of Thing’s Fingers reformed with one addition in ’08 as the 509ers. In 2010 Fatty Benny, of The Crabs fame, took on occasional drumming duties until Chuck Love stepped in and took on full time duty on the skins.

The Sparkomatics are a heady brew of fuzz guitar, screaming organ, and a rock solid rhythm section. Taking a cue from the garage bands of the past, The Sparkomatics weave high energy original stompers with classic garage nuggets for a high energy show you won’t forget! The Sparkomatics are alive, plugged in, and ready to crawl out of the basement! Garage Rock n’ Roll from Bristol.
