Weapons, Women In Lingerie, And Lots of Theatrics
No, that's not a night in Ozzy Osbourne's house.
It's what the group Roma! serves, aiming for a sort of Velvet Underground version of Queen as interpreted by Fellini, Raymond Chandler, and a 1920s cabaret.
They're damned good -- and I don't just say that because the lead singer, Kenyon Phillips, happens to be a friend of mine (and because I cameo on the new album, The Wild Party).
Anyway, Roma! is having a Vaudeville Playback Party on the 23rd at Dominion NY at 8 p.m., as well as a record-release party at Santos Party House on the 30th.
If you haven't been to Roma!, you haven't lived.
