The Prophets Of Addiction-The Show

A little bit of glam, glam rock that is, came to Wenatchee last Saturday  at “Wally’s House Of Booze” in the form of “The Prophets Of Addiction”

“The Prophets Of Addiction” are a four piece featuring Lesli Sanders on bass and lead vocals, Tim Diedrich on guitar and vocals, McKenna Gates on other guitar and vocals and Jimmy Mess on drums and vocals. The band, from Tacoma,  formed around 2010 and they have one cd to their credit “Babylon Boulevard”.

The bands 45 minute set consisted of the entire cd “Babylon Boulevard” along with a couple of other tunes. They start their set with the title tune “Babylon Boulevard”



Towards the end of the set they played “Post Cards” which just as they started Lesli broke a string, a bass string…awesome. Here he’s using his back up bass.



They ended the night with my favorite “Hang Me Up”.



If you missed the “The Prophets” this time around, they will be back at “Wally’s House Of Booze” on April 16 as Wenatchee is  the first stop of their 52 stop, 2 month nation wide tour.  Come get your glam on.




Show Of The Week-Prophets Of Addiction


This Saturday the 22nd get your glam on with “Prophets Of Addiction”  from the west side as they invade “Wally’s House Of Booze” right here in Wenatchee. If you’re a youngster, this may be something new, if you’re an oldster (such as I) this will be a flash from the past.



Opening the show will be locals “Tusk” and from my future home of Cashmere is “Bad Juju”. Music to start “around 9:00″ with only a $5 cover and, sorry kiddies, this is a 21+ event.

Go to a show………….you know you want to.



Show Of The Week-Rum Rebellion


Sunday March 16th it’s a “Pre-Saint Patty’s Day Party” at Wally’s House Of Booze featuring Celtic punkers”Rum Rebellion” from Portland, OR as they finish up their north west tour. If you missed them when they were here last November, I’d advise not missing them this time around. Tyler Bennett on tin-whistle is rather amazing and they’ve added a sixth player to the mix, Jimmy Turner on accordion.



Opening the show are local favorites “Rich And Rare Rebels” and doing an acoustical set “Panic Bomb”. Music to start at 9:00, it is a 21+ show and the cover is only $5, such a deal on a Sunday night.

Calabrese-The Show

Friday night was full of rock and roll goodness at “Wally’s House Of Booze” as there was a quadruple header happening with “Rich And Rare Rebels”, “Not All There”, “Angie And The Car Wrecks” and headlining the activities was “Calabrese”.

DSC04765 (2)

“Calabrese”, from Phoenix AZ,  stopped by Wally’s in the middle of their “American Rebels Death Rider” tour between their Seattle and Vancouver BC dates. The band was founded in 2003 by brothers Jimmy Calabrese on bass and vocals, Bobby Calabrese on guitar and vocals and Davey Calabrese on drums. They have released five CD’s and were touring in support of their latest album “Born With A Scorpion’s Touch”.

“Calabrese” started their 75 minute set with “Ghostwolves” and “Born With A Scorpion’s Touch”.




The energy in the room that night was pretty incredible as evident by the crowd in the video’s. Thanks go out to Tiffany who saved Jimmy’s microphone many a time as it was hit by members of the enthusiastic crowd and she got to sing a little back up as seen in the following video. Also note that at the 1:29 mark the video shakes, I and the P.A.  speaker took a hit from the crowd but hey, that’s punk.



I do believe too, that “Calabrese” was a bit surprised as to how much partyin’ energy was flowing through the crowd. Small town, small bar but we like our punk. It was obvious that the band was having just as much fun as the crowd, maybe even more.

Many thanks go out to “Calabrese” for stopping by our little town and to “Snatchee Records” and “Andy” for getting them here and to “Wally’s House Of Booze” for allowing them a place to play. Kudo’s to you all.
