This Friday night at the RumbleSeat Grill, Kristi Kream and the Sugar Daddies will be joined for the first time by axe man Dan Derkits’s new Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 guitar — a double humbucking monster.

“It sounds fuller, is easy to play, looks good and chicks dig it,” Dan said.  “With Kristi Kream being a four piece, there’s only my guitar holding down the middle ground.  This guy really fills up the spaces.  Its got clean and crunch.”

What it means for KKSD fans is Friday’s gig is going to rumble and rock, with pumped up sound and energy, meaty licks and piercing solos — and there is almost a set’s worth of new songs to punctuate it.

Kristi Kream and the Sugar Daddies play Friday, April 4 at the RumbleSeat Grill; 8:00 – 11:00.

“First time I heard that thing I nearly fell over,” Bill Bucco, KKSD bassist, told the story, “We were in rehearsal and I had to stop for a moment.  I was crying.  I wanted to ask [the guitar] out on a date, but I was afraid I wasn’t good enough for it.”

“It really improves my musicality,” Dan added.  “I’ve been playing my Jackson for 20 years, and it’s great for metal, it’s been a good companion, but these days I’m thinking it might be time to take a new road.”

Recently the RumbleSeat Grill renovated the bar area opening up sightlines and clearing room for a dance floor!  Now you can enjoy Kristi’s pretty face, Bill’s awkward dance moves and the sweetest rock ever in Panavision.  We took a quick trip up there and snapped a few pictures for you.

KKSD’s header is sampled from a painting by Niagara.

Niagara is a punk rock musician and a painter. Combining an illustrator’s hand with some collage and pop iconography, Niagara’s style began to take shape in earnest during the early 90’s as she was beginning to show in small exhibits and cafes around the Detroit area.

Her first exhibits “All Men Are Cremated Equal” (1996) and “Faster Niagara, Kill…Kill” (1997) were breakout shows which garnered her regional praise . “The Niagara Girl,” who appears in many female guises, would come to represent feminist swagger with drop dead gorgeous looks and an equally dangerous demeanor. Hard-boiled, tough talking gals who would rather dispatch a man than put up with any of his antics. Her bold and colorful post-pulp comic strip countenances of femme fatales in various depictions of malfeasence was culturally solidified by Callie Khoury’s Thelma and Louise, which shares a kindred spirit with Niagara’s subjects, along with pin-up girls like Bettie Page and the bad side of 40’s and 50’s film icons such as Bette Davis, Lauren Bacall and Jane Greer.

Here’s a few samples:
