When: Wed., Oct. 19, 11 p.m. 2016
The trashy glamour of early-2000s electroclash is alive and well with the Simple Pleasure. For more than a decade, the Philadelphia band has been churning out kitschy, danceable anthems fit for a sweltering basement dance party. The band came to some prominence after entering the orbit of the always entertaining — and sometimes controversial — Amanda Palmer. Combining elements of synth-pop, punk and soul, the band is known for revving its audiences into undulating masses of hot, carnal nonsense. Catch the Simple Pleasure on Saturday, October 15, at Charlie-O’s World Famous in Montpelier, and Wednesday, October 19, at Radio Bean in Burlington.
