Amoeba San Francisco - November 30th @ 6:00pm
What do you get when you combine elements of the Cramps, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, and The Runaways? You get Starcrawler. Join them for a live set and signing of their new single "Hollywood Ending" (out now on Rough Trade Records) at Amoeba SF on Friday, November 30th at 6pm.
Starcrawler is a Los Angeles rock band featuring vocalist Arrow de Wilde, guitarist Henri Cash, drummer Austin Smith, and bassman Tim Franco. The foursome play with squalling riffs and thundering beats, and their incendiary live shows, fronted by de Wilde’s otherworldly magnetism, are truly captivating. Gigwise (UK) recently stated that “Starcrawler are simply the most exciting - and best - band Rough Trade have signed in years."
Starcrawler’s self-titled debut was released in January by Rough Trade Records to rave reviews and since then they’ve had amazing things happen. In March, they won the 2018 SXSW Grulke prize for best developing US act after blowing minds at each of their nine shows. They were a VEVO DSCVR artists with video testimonial from Shirley Manson who said “I feel like Starcrawler, and in particular Arrow, are really challenging the norms in which women are seen in music.” They’ve been on the road pretty much non-stop playing all over the world, including triumphant sets at Primavera, Rock Am Ring, Download Festival, Voodoo Festival, Fuji Rock, Reading, Leeds and more.
The amount of support they have received from their fellow artists has been equally impressive. They opened shows with the Foo Fighters at Olympic Park in London, and toured with The Distillers and MC50 (the super-group led by MC5 founding guitarist Wayne Kramer) where Arrow sang “High School” on stage with them, and last but not least, just opened for Morrisey in San Diego!
