Bev Rage & The Drinks: A Kaleidoscopic Fusion of Garage-Rock and Drag at the Teragram Thoughts+Photos: Bev Rage and the Drinks at Teragram Ballroom 8/23/23
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“…The Teragram came alive with the raucous garage-rock sounds of Chicago-based Bev Rage & The Drinks. Opening for Bully, their vibrant set was not only a musical treat but also a visual spectacle, a kaleidoscope of color and kitsch.
Leading the troupe was Beverly Rage, a towering drag queen with a charisma to match her height. The sight of her was enough to pique anyone’s curiosity, but when she brandished her guitar and her band began dishing out frenetic garage-rock with undercurrents of punk, they proved to be an extremely fun and exciting opening act.
Though I wasn’t familiar with the music, I thoroughly enjoyed the energy that they gave us. Strong and propulsive drums. Thick, steady bass lines. Killer riffs. And some killer, rocking drag. What’s not to enjoy?…”
