Through unkind, cynical eyes, Pretty Boy Floyd might always be viewed as the also-rans of the Hollywood sleaze rock scene. Their debut album, Leather Boyz with Electric Toyz, wasn’t released until ’89, when the whole hair movement was in the process of winding down, and while the “Rock and Roll (Is Gonna Set the Night on Fire)” single remains a crowd favorite, they didn’t have any major hits. But here’s the thing — it takes more than a few chartbusters to create a valid scene. PBF have a few full lengthers jam-packed with quality, anthemic hard rock, and they continue to work their butts off. This show celebrates their 30th anniversary, and they sure deserve a party. Tennessee Werewolves, Southern Sinners, Civil Strife, Molly Vamp, CallBox, Red Vinyl Gypsies and Black Current also play.
Pretty Boy Floyd plays with Tennessee Werewolves, Southern Sinners, Civil Strife, Molly Vamp, CallBox, Red Vinyl Gypsies and Black Current at 6 p.m. on Friday, July 26 at the Whisky A Go Go.
