It takes a special kind of city, a special kind of scene, a robust camaraderie & a resilient adherence to solid aesthetics to carry a vibrant rock & roll party like Guitar Army for THREE FUCKING YEARS! GxA started in February of 2012, the week that Michael Davis Bass Player MC5 passed away. The concept was to facilitate a platform for REAL rock 'n roll culture, holding the torch high & creating a space where the best garage/punk/glam/soul music packs a dancefloor & congregates people for the love of music, dancing & gettin' loaded. Guitar Army turns three on the 19th of March - we're hosting an open bar from 9 until supplies are gone, so arrive early & ready to KICK OUT THE JAMS MOTHERFUCKERS!!! +++++++++++++++++++++++ And now, the usual rundown: Guitar Army Philly is the Philadelphian tour de force aural exercise in decadence and grit. We are the party that brought you Italy's boot boy glam rockers Giuda, Cherie Currie of The Runaways, David Johansen from New York Dolls, Richie Ramone from Ramones, Gregg Foreman of Cat Power & James Williamson of Iggy And The Stooges' Re-Licked, LA's HAMMERED SATIN, Nashville's The Tip, and hosted record release shows & showcases for local heroes Needle Points, Mean Streets, The High Five, Cheerbleeders & Posers. You've seen this movement unfurl from the attic dwellings of Barbarella and snowball into a mountain of kinetic & unbridled sexual rock 'n roll energy on a monthly basis. GET YOUR ROCKS OFF! Distilled for maximum perspiration on the dancefloor: Edward B. Gieda III kicks out maximum SHAKE APPEAL through crafting a four hour set, weaving '70-'74 UK & USA GLAM, & PROTO-CLASSIC-and-POST-PUNK, RAW SOUL+GARAGE+PSYCHE+ sounds into a cohesive sonic testimony! +++ALL SEX JAMS+++ALL NIGHT LONG+++ //Edward B. Gieda III (EBGIII) - song selector extraordinaire! //Party photos by Kristin Guessford // Did I Shutter //Lights by the amazing Lee Alexander! //EARLY DOORS - PARTY STARTS AT 8PM! //OPEN BAR 9PM - SUPPLIES GONE! This party will provide the perfect score for your overindulging, drunken asses -- let's get together and kick out the jams, motherfuckers!
