THE WORLD/INFERNO FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY: NYC's disturbingly cult-like, circus-related, Halloween-tent-revival orchestra the World/Inferno Friendship Society perform red-eyed soul show tunes for the swarming punk rock masses. The World/Inferno Friendship Society is not a rock band with a horn section; it's a fully-integrated orchestra of young men and women writing for you songs of the wine, freedoms and foibles which make life more than waking up and going to work every day. Nine pieces - 2 drummers 4 horns 2 guitars way too many teeth a piano and an accordion. Fate, my friends, loves the Fearless. And We, in turn, love You. Don't turn away from love, friends--don't be chicken. THE WORLD/INFERNO FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY is all the proof you need. With songs so sweet and a quicksilver beat, a lean 9-piece orchestra of girls and boys plays the cabaret-soul-punkety soundtrack to your romances and disasters. The vaudeville circus you always wished your life could be can be--just come and see! They're riding a wave of delicious alcohol straight into your hearts. Even if they have to buy the drinks themselves, they'll do it. Come see the circus play the Pike Room, one night only! Come and waltz with the one you love. This time out, Jack Terricloth and cohorts are joined by Dresden Dolls' Brian Viglione on drums! With EASY ACTION: Formed in 1997 from the smoldering heap of Brannon’s earlier rock powerhouses (LAUGHING HYENAS and before that NEGATIVE APPROACH, both on the Touch and Go Records label), EASY ACTION relies on the Search-And-Destroy ethic, careening like an untracked train into songs that defy interpretation. The jagged guitar rips holes through a swath of rhythm, simple and reckless, but Brannon’s howl is what makes the Action so Easy, a now-familiar screech of war that turns everything upside down. Brannon sings of death, love, terror, hate, and the emotional shrapnel that scars anyone who lives and breathes. THE SERPENT MEN open.
