I’ll be in Bang Camaro…for two songs tonight!

bang@ZackTeibloom It’s been building up to this moment for a while. It started when I would play Bang Camaro’s song “Push Push (Lady Lightning)” from Guitar Hero 2 over and over. It escalated when I saw them kick off Lollapalooza with the first performance of the festival.

With two shots of whiskey burning my throat and spray-on sunscreen burning my eyes, I rolled up my sleeves at 11:30 a.m. from the front row, center as their guitarist kept pointing at me because I was rocking especially hard.

After the show I wrote a post saying, “I could be in Bang Camaro” in jest and got my hopes up months later I saw they were holding open tryouts for singers in Chicago, but never did anything about it.

I toiled away in Blake’s living room, perfecting my lead singer mojo on Rock Band, thinking that was as far as my front-man dreams would take me. Now, it’s all happening.

I’m joining Bang Camaro and their chorus of singers for their last two songs “Blood Red Rock” and “Push Push (Lady Lightning) on stage at their Wednesday performance at Emo’s in Austin. I’m interviewing the band after sound check and writing up the experience for a freelance magazine piece in addition to reporting it here at Festival Crashers.

Thanks to Blake for letting me know about this band, dragging me to see them at Lolla and telling me they’re coming to town next week. Thanks to Bang Camaro for being really open to the idea. Thanks to my new friends in Austin for coming out to see me be a goofball on stage Wednesnay night (and taking lots of pictures and video.) It’s $10. 10 p.m. Emo’s. See you there.
