Thelma and the Sleaze at Bar DKDC 

Nashville pranksters Thelma and the Sleaze return to Memphis this Saturday night for a performance at Bar DKDC. Thelma and the Sleaze are no strangers to performing in Memphis, having already played at places like the Buccaneer, the Hi-Tone, and Black Lodge Video. The band seems to have found a home at Bar DKDC, as the Midtown establishment has hosted their recent local shows. No matter where they decide to play, the shock-rock that Thelma and the Sleaze deliver is worth the price of admission.

While most Nashville garage bands can be described as family-friendly, Thelma and the Sleaze take their live show to the limit, honoring past rock-and-roll troublemakers like the Runaways with revealing stage attire and provocative song content. Musically, they sound like the Pleasure Seekers covering Thin Lizzy, which means they could be tapped to appear in a Quentin Tarantino movie any day now. The band has a slew of EP's under their belt and recently added a second guitarist to beef up their whiskey-soaked songs.

Also on the bill is long-time-running local band Data Drums, a project of the Oscars' Chuck Vicious and Bobby Lee of the Manateees and Nervs. Though Lee lives in Oxford, Data Drums are increasing their local appearances this summer after a period of almost never playing live. Data Drums recently performed on the Rocket Science Audio variety show with Aquarian Blood, and frontman Chuck Vicious played a game of chess with an audience member in between (and during) his band's fast-paced punk songs. While there might not be a chess match during Saturday's show at Bar DKDC, the high-energy rock-and-roll should be enough to keep you entertained.

Thelma and the Sleaze and Data Drums, Saturday, July 11th, at Bar DKDC. Doors open at 9 p.m., and admission is $5.
