Dust off your Chucks, lace up your Doc Martens and secure any items of value, because Guitar Army celebrates its first anniversary this Thursday at Barbarella.
The all vinyl, all rock anthem party has been musically orchestrated by one-man show, Eddie B. Gieda (aka EBGIII), since day one. The night was initially catalyzed by the death of legendary MC5 bassist, Michael Davis, in early 2012. In an effort to show tribute to Davis, and other vital rock legends, Eddie created a dance party unlike any other in the city of Philadelphia. The now bi-monthly event is a ritual for not only him and his vinyl records, but for a flourishing dedicated fan base, who turn out week after week to jam out with a crew of rock hungry misfits.
Additionally, the SOLD OUT Queers and Teenage Bottlerocket show on The Barbary's first floor is happening opposite of the celebration. However, you don't need a ticket to attend this event, just a genuine thirst for glam-rock, post punk, soul, garage and psyche music. If you happen to be at the show, make sure to head upstairs afterwards for after-party fun. Time to dance, sweat and kick out the jams like never before!
Starting next month, Guitar Army will move downstairs to The Barbary's 1st floor as a monhtly.
