Live Lunch May 2: Vice Tricks

ViceTricks2

Want to know who is coming up in the next few weeks? Did you miss an episode? Have no fear! Take a look at our Live Lunch archives and upcoming schedule.

It’s a Derby Eve throwdown with Louisville’s own Vice Tricks, this Friday at noon! Join us for some Psychobilly rock ‘n’ roll live in our studios before they play The New Vintage Friday night with Bodeco!

Described as “Social Distortion, meets Reverend Horton Heat.” Featuring the Devilish Ms. Verity Vice on Upright Bass, Vice Tricks began as a way to combine a love of 50’s-60’s Rock & Roll with the energy of 70’s punk rock and have carefully crafted, carved, and botched their sound into something unique.
