Come see The Sharp Lads (NYC), Toxic Moxie (RVA), and Ferrigno (Cville) at the Twisted Branch on Tuesday, January 13th! Doors @ 8:30 pm, Bands start @ 9 pm.

The Sharp Lads:

I can’t really outdo the bio from their website, so here it is:

Impossible riffs. Obscene showmanship. An ass-groovin’ rhythm section. New punk songs with catchy melodies, the likes of which you never thought you’d hear again. The Sharp Lads released their debut album in the summer of 2011, and unleashed a campaign of live rock n’ roll shock and awe, unlike anything the world had ever witnessed before. And now they’re back!
Taking lessons learned on their home turf of NYC and on the road everywhere else they could, playing to crowds of sweaty loyalists and stunned new converts alike, with no concern for their own personal safety or worries about anything other than the moment, the Lads have emerged from their experiences with Death by Misadventure, their second album released Spring 2014.
Dave Tierney leads the charge with schizo vocals alternating between desperate screams and genre bending melodies. Rob Fudge shreds alien riffs that make you feel like your first time all over again while Kurt Wahlstrom holds down the bowel shaking bottom end playing a bass carved from a Jamaican treehouse. Driving the beat like a hell spawned hot rod with its brake lines cut, Steve Dios is blasting these songs with a frightening fury all the way to their grisly finish.
Surrender your sons and daughters. It’s already too late.

Toxic Moxie:

Everyone’s favorite disco punks return to Cville. They take a style similar to Delta 5, but raise the bar making it rougher, grittier, and, surprisingly, more “disco-y.” You can tell they channel divas both on stage and in their spare time. Always worth coming out to see them.


This band from Cville brings tough-ass, riffy jams that ride on and on. With the straight, authoritative vocals, Ferrigno eschews the self-indulgence to distill skate punk into what it should become: Nostalgic, cathartic, and fresh.
