Lunedì 02/10/2017: SUPERSUCKERS (Usa, Veterans Rock/Punk Band) – Punk Rock show in elettrico. Ingresso 10 euro.
I Supersuckers si formano a Tucson, sotto la conduzione di Eddie Spaghetti dapprima esclusivamente bassista del gruppo, che ricoprirà successivamente anche il ruolo di cantante e leader della band. I quattro dell’Arizona propongono sin dagli inizi un punk roccioso pur restando sempre molto versatili nelle loro sonorità, essendo oltremodo vicini al country, genere particolarmente amato da tutta la band. Stiamo parlando di una cult band che dopo essersi trasferita a Seattle nel 1989 ha poco dopo firmato il suo primo contratto con la storica Sub Pop. Negli anni successivi i Supersuckers hanno registrato con molti artisti, tra cui Willie Nelson, Steve Earle e Eddie Vedder dei Pearl Jam. Sono apparsi al The Tonight Show con Jay Leno come backing band di Willie Nelson. Hanno girato con numerose band tra cui The Ramones, Motörhead, The New York Dolls, The Dwarves, White Zombie e i Nashville Pussy.
You’ve heard our name, you’ve seen our records, our t-shirts and our stickers. We’re probably the favorite band of someone you know and yet maybe we’re still a mystery to you. Well my friend, that’s okay, you’re at the right place to get to know the greatest rock-n-roll band in the world, The Supersuckers.
And the next time you see the ‘Supersuckers’ name, whether it’s in the record store, online somewhere, or on the marquee at your local rock club, know that there’s some quality, honest, ass-kicking, hard working individuals behind it all trying to make your life a little better through the “Evil Powers Of Rock-n-Roll” (and the occasional detour into the country music, of course) and we’d love nothing better than to have you there with us as! Just remember to wear clean underwear, because we’re gonna rock your pants right off of you.

One of the few outfits that can call itself “The World’s Greatest Rock ’n’ Roll Band!” and actually get away with it, the Supersuckers eat Marshall stacks and cowboy hats and s**t out high-volume ass-kickery, Motörheading country music and Willie Nelsoning garage-punk better than virtually anyone else, ever.

They played my birthday party. They rock!
-Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam
Every time I hear the word ‘Supersucker,’ I’m reminded of an older gentleman who went into the strip bar and the hooker c’m dancing up to him and said ‘Superpussy!’ and he said ‘Soup, please.’
Supersuckers…I love the Supersuckers, our whole band loves you guys!
-Robin Zander from Cheap Trick
The Supersuckers understand that great rock and great country are, at least on a spiritual level, exactly the same thing. Rock on, boys.
The Supersuckers rock ferociously whenever they feel like it and what really matters is ending this sentence with an exclamation point!
-Little Steven Van Zandt, E Street Band, Little Steven’s Underground Garage
Supersuckers... Everyone knows the Supersuckers
-Elijah Wood (SXSW 2008)
The Supersuckers are hands down one of the best rock n roll bands around today!

Stop listening to the radio and buy a Supersuckers CD, fool!
What type of music does the SUPERSUCKERS play ?. Its called Rock n Roll. What do they do live? Put on a rock show, and they do it better than the rest. I NEVER tire of their music and the Supersuckers are the bands that will make me get up off my ass to go see live and stand in up front in the crowd the whole show.... SUPERSUCKERS are THE Rock Band.
The Supersuckers do NOT super suck!
Everytime I go skateboarding I always rock the Supersuckers in my iPod...
Supersuckers! The hardest working Rock N Roll band in America. I know this because they are in my town every other month in a van. I get tired just watching them. I'm not worthy to be in a rock band! I quit!!!!!
-Kevin from Lit/Good Man Down
