Rockin’ party with The Problem With Kids, The Ambulance Chasers Today Fri., May 6

Party rock ‘n’ roll band The Problem With Kids Today and indie rockers The Ambulance Chasers will crank it up on Fri., May 6, at Best Video Film & Cultural Center. The shindig starts at 7 PM and the cover is $10. (Dust Hat and Mightymoonchew, origonally scheduled for this show, had to drop off due to scheduling and unforeseen circumstances.)

This being an inside show, these are our covid protocols: attendance of 30 max, masks and proof of vaccination required.

The Problem with Kids Today is a hot trio of rock ‘n’ roll delinquents with Tate Brooks leading the charge on guitar/vox/mic head-butting, Stone-Cold-Silas Lourenco-Lang on low end bass/vox, and Reena Yu pounding on drums. TPWKT’s fun, wild shows and feverish, fashionable following evoke the Mercer Center Arts era of the New York Dolls. Fast, combustible, lewd and spontaneous – they have all the gems of a fantastic live act. With a debut album recorded at Sans Serif Studio in New Haven on the way this winter, teaser tracks like “You’re in Love With Junk” and “Fly Boy” can be found on the band’s Bandcamp site as well as major streaming platforms.
