D: a favourite and repeat post. I know my girl Claudia loves this one as well.
Tonight kicks off our new monthly gig at Mono in Glasgow.x
Veniece Starks - Get You Out Of My Mind
Billy Miller: Did you call yourselves the Shangri-Las right from the start?
Mary Weiss: You know, we didn’t have a name initially. We were going to make a record and we said, “We better get a name - fast!” We were driving on Long Island and saw a restaurant called the Shangri-La. That’s where we got the name.
D: and then we got our name from one of their tracks, adding “The”.
Adele Bethel (Sons & Daughters) and The Sophisticated Boom Boom are back to present you with another edition of our monthly night, ‘Boom Boom!’, Nice n Sleazy, Glasgow. We play our favourite tunes (garage, girl groups, psych, new wave, R&B, punk, soul, etc…) and set the example to everyone else, of dancing like no one is watching. Let’s all get a little reckless.
This is the official poster.
