Rocky Kaminski Record Release Show at The Fire Oct. 21

Rocky Kaminski Record Release Show at The Fire Oct. 21

A drafty eeriness hangs in the space-age rockabilly of Rocky Kaminski, the alternative persona of Thom McCarthy. With a new record 2088: The Jumbo-Cricket Landfill Incident being released today, Kaminski will be celebrating its arrival this evening at The Fire. A creepy unknown backdrop looms in Kaminski’s mesmerizing, weary, impassioned, image-littered lyrics, as though the weight of experience and pollution has worn him down, stirring the mess in a pot with a traditional base teleported through a celestial filter. Speaking of tradition, Evan Cory Levine gets the balls rolling with his hybrid folk-jazz sound, while Ali Wadsworth & Company, inspired by Back to the Future’s return, pay homage to Huey Lewis and The News. The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
