Bloody Social just might be one of the few real rock and roll bands in New York City, so dare to put your ear drums to the test and experience them live this week. Join Cheeky Bastard, GBH, hostesses Six Six Sick, and last but not least, Alex English and Peter Makebish, for an intense night of decadence and hard-driving sounds.

Bloody Social play at midnight, and Iceland’s Mugison and DJs Kids With Snakes and Damaged Goods (aka Obi T) will round out the electric evening at NYC’s Hiro Ballroom in the Maritime Hotel, Thursday May 15th. Doors at 9pm. All you have to do is rsvp here for guest list action and more info.–photo © Andrzej Liguz/moreimages.net

 
  1. This show was HORRIBLE………If anyone had to pay to see that they would have had a huge problem with people demanding refunds. The lead singer was awful, poorly performed and the music was off key.

    These guys are kidding themselves…..

  3. Yeah, I went to the show too, too bad it was such a disappointment. Seems like just another band trying to capitalize on a lead singer with no talent who dates high profile chicks. I mean come on, what the f*ck!!!! Give me a break, don’t disrespect rock. The songs are of low brow quality, no real story to the music. The guitarist can’t stay in tempo with the music. These guys are a big joke!! Don’t waste your time.

  4. Hmm…could it be that your ears are so used to hearing a monotonous-three-chord-tuned-downed-bunch-of-green-day-slop that you don’t actually know rock n’ roll when you hear it?

    Oh, and the high-profile chicks chase this guy down the street…not the other way around.

  5. Actually, NO Claire, my ears are not used to hearing a monotonous- three-chord-tuned-down (no ed needed) bunch of green day slop.

    I actually work in the music biz and was there to check them out. They are just like another band that had a leading man who was dating an actress and look where that band is now! They need to give it up. The bass wasn’t so bad, but the rest of the band should find other jobs and just get together and play in the garage on weekends.

    Quite amusing.

  7. I agree with rock4ever and crystalchix. I was at the show and had gone to 2 previous shows. They are not good at all. I thougt that they would have some potential but its been over a year now and they really haven’t improved as much as they should have. They’re just like another after school garage band. Going no where.

  8. Sorry bitter bitches, I disagree. I’m ancient, have been on the rock scene in NYC since the early 80′s, and am absolutely ecstatic that a real rock band has entered the fray after so many years of bullshit, overweight, indie dorks whining through their side-part bangs. Bloody Social has the potential to be something really great, and are a true ROCK band. What some members lack in experience, they make up in other ways. All this nastiness on the comments just has to do with the fact that you don’t like the fact that the singer dates models. I’m not excited about models mixing with my rock and roll either, but that doesn’t take away from who and what these guys are and could be. Get over the jealousy, ladies, and pay attention to what’s really going on.

  9. The comments and banter on here are quite amusing. I must say so myself that those bitter bitches seem to be on the right track. I’ve worked in the music industry since 1992 at a major label and have signed major artists. Although they get a bit of attention, their music is not anywhere near true ROCK. I’m sorry DL but it sounds more like you are one of the members of the band. “what some members lack in experience, they make up in other ways…” sounds like only something an insider would say. Bloody Social has no commercial aspect to them and that means that they will never make it. Their songs are poorly written and do not appeal to a mass audience. Potentially, they may do the minivan tour but they will never at this point be something really great. But with hard work and maybe restructuring the band (the guitarist and singer) maybe they can become something.

  10. I 100% agree with MichaelDon, rockslut, and crystalchix. Take it from someone who is high up on the A&R and marketing chain. Bloody Social is a locals band. Mass appeal they do not have. Michael Don is right about changing out the guitarist and singer or the bassist should just jump ship to another.

  12. All this talk about whether they are good or not really doesnt matter. People are always going to disagree with each other. The fact that we are talking about them means they are certainly doing something right. They remind me of another downtown band that had a similar following. The Velvet Underground divided public opinion also, saying that they were singing about all the wrong things bla bla bla and choosing to break safe & conventional boundaries. I think Bloody Social are creative, agressive & a little punk as well which I like. Someone said lose the singer and guitarist, I say the fact they are so raw is part of the attraction.
