Finnish goth-glam rockers The 69 Eyes have been around since 1989, which seems staggering to those of us who only recently got hip to them. The good news is, there’s a stellar back catalog to work through for the newbies. From the debut Motor City Resurrection (strictly speaking, a compilation of the early singles plus some covers), through to last year’s West End, the band have remained remarkably consistent and always tons of spooky, dark, industrial-tinged glam-metal fun. Former Murderdolls/Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13 man Wednesday 13 is the perfect touring partner for the 69 Eyes, sharing an affinity for horror movie lyrics, snarled vocals and infectious melodies. Sumo Cyco and The Crowned also play.
The 69 Eyes plays with Wednesday 13, Sumo Cyco and The Crowned at 7 p.m. on Friday, February 7 at the Whisky A Go Go.
