TONIGHT: Return Of ‘The Bold Rock Life Style’

Urge Overkill* plays the North Star Bar tonight with Creem Circus** and The Cocks***

*UO released its first full-length, the Steve Albini-produced Jesus Urge Superstar, in 1989 through Touch and Go Records and steadily began ascending in popularity. By the early 90’s, they were opening for Nirvana and Pearl Jam, and eventually signed to Geffen Records, who released their beloved classic LP, Saturation. The group’s biggest moment in the spotlight came when Quentin Tarantino prominently used their cover of Neil Diamond’s “Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon” in his film Pulp Fiction. The soundtrack soon became one of the most acclaimed and successful of the decade and Urge’s version of “Girl” became a hit. The band went on to sell over 2.5 million albums, and recently came full circle when they performed at the New York Friar’s Club Roast of Quentin Tarantino this past December.

**We are The Creem Circus. We are your favorite band’s favorite band. We play hard, glitter, tandum lead, platfom-prowerchord rock & roll with lot of boogie down soul. We shop in the womens department and our amps are ALWAYS stacked. The time has come to party on down and run away. Featuring Chris DiPinto of DiPinto Guitars on lead guitar and vocals. Great Glam Rock!

***Part therapy session, part story telling, each song is steeped in that songwriters own experiences. A Cocks song is an exploration into the human condition of 21st Century America, a story told through the rock-n-roll aural assault of bass, guitar and drums. Finding a way to blend Kinks, Big Star, Fountains of Wayne and Wilco…great stuff.
