Bad taste. Pushing borders and crossing lines. Sparklefight maneuvers with deft ability and straddles the line between good taste and obscene. The self-proclaimed, 'Sleazy Rock-n-Roll Comedy' band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is coming to FUBAR in downtown St. Petersburg this Friday night January 17, 2014. They recorded their debut, Sperm Tsunami, within a few short months after formation in 2012 and quickly gathered a following in their hometown with their offering of offensive and tasteless songs about toilet humor, penises and vaginas. The trio is taking a break from the cold weather of Philly to support their 2012 release by heading south to share their music and humor on the 'Titillate Tour 2014'.
Sparklefight can be best described as System of a Down meets Bloodhound Gang with a splash of Queens of the Stoneage thrown in for good measure. When asked to best describe their sound, Sparklefight drummer Mike Beer claims 'pop punk' while still acknowledging that 'pop punk is not our thing'. On the topic of new music and recording, Beer mentions that they're 'not mad about the first record', but now they've 'upped the anti with the second record as far as getting real weird'. The new material, which they'll be playing this weekend, will be featured on an upcoming nine song release through Creep Records.
Sparklefight will be touring with The Olde City Sideshow, a brother and sister variety act from Philly. They will be entertaining the crowd with fire eating, sword swallowing, glass walking, bug eating and more. T.B.H.C. lined up the nights entertainment for FUBAR that also includes PIG PEN, The Scurvy, Birthday Candles and Twisty Chris and the Puddin' Packs.
FUBAR is located at 658 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, FL 33701. DOORS 7PM. BANDS 8PM. $5 21+ SHOW.
