The Hollywood Vampires are over half way through their short tour and various reviews and articles have started to appear. PE.com has a few words with Jo Perry, SF Weekly review the San Francisco show, although the reviewer clearly went to the show intending to trash it. They have some photos too. The Denver post have photos from the Denver show, as does Westword. 303Magazine review the Fillmore show and Glide Magazine have more photos.
UPDATE: Just after I posted this EarMusic released a new video for ‘The Boogieman Surprise‘. See below.
Dennis Dunaway has posted part 2 of his Astroturf Film Festival blog post which you can check out here. This one covers the Detroit festival.
Blue Coupe will be playing with Mott The Hoople’s Ian Hunter at The City Winery in New York City on May 31st. The event is already sold out but you can sign up for a waiting list in case any more tickets become available.
There’s also a new interview with Dennis at ‘The College Crowd Hates Me‘ which covers a lot of ground including the story behind ‘Black Juju’.
Finally for DD news the ‘Cold Cold Coffin’ mini-movie has been accepted into the ‘Indie Horror Film Festival‘ in Illinois and will be screened on July 13th. Dennis is hoping for other festival screenings to follow soon. For those who took part in the Pledge campaign to make the film, your pledge items have started to ship so watch your mail box!
