Artist of the day: Hell-Bent
Miss the Misfits? And not the Jerry Only-fronted modern version, but the Danzig/Doyle original horror-punks from the late ‘70s and early ‘80s? Then check out Hell-Bent, a hell-raising Misfits tribute band.
Singer Patrick “Barnabas” Collins, bassist Matt Lopresti, drummer Steven Haun and guitarist “Jay” comprise the group, which started in 2009 as Teenagers From Mars. These days they play snotty, fist-pumping punk to crowds of all sizes about once a month. They’re working on original material, but for now, their mission is simple: “We bring a live Danzig-era Misfits experience because why-the-F%@k-not?”
Hell-Bent will perform Friday at Fubar in downtown St. Pete alongside Cash For Soul, Sibyls and Quilted Fish. Click here for details.
