Sponge, American alternative rock band from Detroit, invites fans to get plowed on Sunday, Aug. 5 at Beauty Bar Las Vegas. Year Of The Cobra, The Darkest Day, Wicked Garden will serve as openers for Sponge.
Sponge has proven to be one of the Motor City’s heaviest hitters after gaining international popularity with their debut album “Rotting Piñata” (Sony).
Emerging from Detroit with hits like “Plowed” and “Molly (16 Candles),” Sponge received massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV. Both “Plowed” and “Molly” hit #5 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Charts, catapulting “Rotting Piñata” to platinum status.
Sponge’s follow up CD, the critically lauded “Wax Ecstatic” (Columbia) scored additional top ten Billboard hits including “Wax Ecstatic” and “Have You Seen Mary?” The band gained additional recognition with appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and the “Conan O’Brien Show” and having their music featured in popular movies such as “The Craft,” “Chasing Amy,” “Mall Rats” and “Empire Records.”
Sponge’s subsequent releases “New Pop Sunday,” “For All The Drugs in The World,” “The Man,” “Galore Galore” and “Destroy the Boy” showcased the band’s swirling sonic attack, which is rooted in 70s glam and the Motor City influences of The Stooges, The MC5 and Motown but still sounding distinctly like no one else.
“Plowed” continues to be the band’s signature rock track, spotlighted on Guitar Hero’s “Warriors of Rock – 90’s Rock Track Pack” and on the Paper Jamz Guitar Series 2 as well as on the soundtrack for the Gerard Butler surf movie “Chasing Mavericks.”
Tickets are $18 advance pre-sale or $20 the day of show exclusively on Ticketbat.com.
