The Pleasure Centers @ The Burlyton - 9pm - Wed, 9/26
The Pleasure Centers are playing a new, eggcellent show this coming Wednesday, at the Burlyton. We’ll be playing all the jams, new and old. And we’ll also be playing with the new member of The Pleasure Centers, John, and no joke, we sound way more sock-hop-dance-y with a low end. No apologizes, no doubts, this will be our greatest show.
We start at 9pm on the dot, no celebrity time, so come hang out. We can all have a beer together afterwards!
We’re playing with other top bands Softspot (NYC), Cool Memories, and Friends in Real Life. Check it!
Show - June 15: The Pleasure Centers kick out Summer jams at the Dock
Great news friends. The Pleasure Center’s hope everyone is enjoying their summer breaks. To up the summer fun, we’re playing a show on June 15th at the Dock on Montrose Beach. We’re playing two sets, starting at 6:30. Its our first outdoor show, and our longest (two hour long sets!), and to celebrate we’ve added a ton of new songs to the set: new tunes, old tunes we’ve never tried before, Ramones covers, maybe some other cover if we’re feeling bold.
So, if you’re looking for something up-beat-and-hopefully grin inducing to do on Friday, June 15 around 6:30, come see us.
- The show is free.
- We’re being paid in beer, so Pete might gain the courage to talk into the mic
- Mark might wear some blue shades
The Dock is on the actual Montrose Beach, so come grab a coconut something and join us! No one will be turned away, no frown will be left upside down.
The Pleasure Centers - #11 - Just For Me
The Pleasure Centers are proud to release our 11th set of songs, Just For Me. Maybe we’ve just been too excited looking forward to the new La Sera release (coming out tomorrow!), but these new songs have a heavy pop-punk / bubble-gum punk kind of feel to them. They’re also the first time I (Pete) managed to sneak a Cheap-Trick style key change past Mark, with predictable fist pumping results.
Singing these two new songs gives me a question though. Half-for-goofs, we’re singing in a half-Joey Ramone style on these songs. But here is the thing: singing in a Joey Ramone style makes everything easy to sing! So, then, the question: is singing in a Joey Ramone patois easier:
- because everyone already likes the Ramones, and so singing like the Ramones gives you an automatic conference boost, or
- because Joey Ramone discovered a new way of singing in 1976, which helped drive them to great-ness?
There is truly no way to know. But, in the meantime, please enjoy the new songs!
