Fleshtones At 930

We’re playing catchup, as the whole gang at Tulip Frenzy world HQ was given permission to go on their annual vacations.  However, on August 14th, the Fleshtones made a rare, rare, altogether too rare stop at Washington’s 930 Club, and they turned thee place upside down, inside out, and over the top.  Bringing “Hitsburg USA” to the capital o’ the USA was cool enough, but then there was the set.  Keith jumped down onto the packed floor and kicked his way through “Theme From The Vindicators,” and all the kids did the Gentleman’s Twist.  Peter Zaremba was resplendent in his sequined duds, kicking off with “Hard Lovin’ Man,”  and Bill Milhizer thundered like a one-man construction site. But the highlight of the show may have been when Kim Kane of D.C. legends The Slickee Boys took Keith’s axe and Ken Fox lifted some talented young kid up from out of the audience to play the bass for 1:30 of pure Powerstance rock.  Who was that kid?  Give him a contract!  And bring the greatest rock’n’roll band in America back, puh-leeeze.
