Whipped! received a lukewarm reception and forming S&M-themed industrial rock band The Newlydeads. By the mid-2000s, however, Downe had put together a new lineup of Pussycat, blending that old-school cock rock with some Newlydeads darkness. 2006’s The Power and the Glory Hole is under-heard, though Pussycat have toured hard since then. Meanwhile, Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed will be joined by a revolving lineup of hard rockers for a hard-partying set. It all makes for a stunningly decadent double bill, and you can be sure that the booze will be flowing freely as the countdown to 2019 commences. The Whisky will be the best cathouse in town.
