Mondo Hollywood is a two-day festival of garage rock, surf, punk and rockabilly. Deejays from Green Slime, Radiocore and Voodoo Lounge L.A. will spin a nonstop barrage of trash rock while sultry burlesque sirens from the Mondo Trash Burlesque Revue, including Vanessa Burgundy, Kira Von Sutra, V.V. Venom and Kristina Nekyia, will entice you into a state of delirious madness. Saturday is centered on psychobilly groups such as Guana Batz and pyrotechnic trio Three Bad Jacks, but things really heat up on Sunday with sets from garage-rock all-stars The Control Freaks and intensely manic punks The Schizophonics, The Flytraps and Deadbolt. The biggest thrills, though, will be sparked by The Detroit Cobras, whose wildly charismatic and unrepentantly profane singer, Rachel Nagy, has been belting out her fiery R&B remakes with sodden, soulful passion long before Amy Winehouse made her first visit to rehab. Also Saturday, Sept. 1.
With The Detroit Cobras, The Bomboras, The Control Freaks, The Richmond Sluts, The Flytraps, The Schizophonics, The Savage Gospel, The Go-Getters, Gamblers Mark, The Rhythm Shakers, Screamin' Rebel Angels.
