Powerman 5000 Announce Fall 2017 Tour + L.A. Comic Con Appearance
Powerman 5000 have announced the first leg of a worldwide tour that will last through the end of 2018 along with an appearance at Los Angeles Comic Con next month! The tour kicks off Oct. 20 at the Hawthorne Theater in Portland, Ore. and wraps up at the Lookout Lounge in Omaha, Neb. Nov.15.
Hitting the West Coast first, the band will be hosting a record release party for their latest LP, New Wave, on Oct. 26 at the Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles on the eve of the album's release. Afterward, Powerman 5000 are encouraging fans to come visit their booth at L.A. Comic Con. The convention takes place from Oct. 27-29 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Earlier this month, we premiered the latest video for PM5K for their song "Sid Vicious in a Dress," of which band frontman Spider One told us, “Visually, I wanted the video to feel like we stepped back in time, got transported back to the Rathskeller in Boston or CBGBs. Basically a dirty, smelly claustrophobic mess.”
“Over the years, Sid Vicious has become the poster child for chaos and destruction," he added of the clip, which can be seen below. "The video takes that concept and manifests it into the form of a beautiful girl. The title sort of says it all. Conceptually, it was very important to not to let this video become a typical rock n roll bad girl cliche video. This is not a lap dance video, this is violence!” You can check out the video below.
