GLAM PUNK | Faster Pussycat


Faster Pussycat always had the 90 percent that made it great, but the band remained a few steps away from the throne and just outside the mainstream. Regardless, the Kings of Sleaze Rock were mainstays of the 1980's hair metal and glam punk scenes with albums like "Wake Me When It's Over," which earned Faster Pussycat a gold record. The band appeared in the rockumentary "The Decline of Western Civilization Part 2: The Metal Years" and sold out the Hollywood Palace for its final show before calling it quits in 1993. Sure as sugar, Faster Pussycat has reformed its lineup with original lead singer Taime Downe at the wheel and returns for a 30th anniversary tour.

Faster Pussycat performs on Thursday, July 27, at the Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut Street. 7:30 p.m. $18-$20.
