THE TUBES perform Live for "A Tubular Costume Party" in San Rafael
Come dressed for fun. Prizes, Cocktails, Dancing.
Sat. Oct. 29, 2016
Doors open @ 8pm / Show @ 9pm
Murphy Productions, Famous4 and The Kanbar Center for the Arts are celebrating October with a full blown costume party on Oct 29 at the Marin JCC with the extraordinary glam band THE TUBES. The Tubes will go down in the rock history books as one of the most exciting, in-your-face tight-knit group of musicians who epitomized the hilarity of popular American culture by making it into a the ultimate rock’n’roll extravaganza.
In the tradition of Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart, THE TUBES were one of the first bands to write and perform songs in a head-on theatrical onslaught. They simply didn’t entertain, they shocked audiences into submission. The Tubes were one of the pioneers of the rock video years before MTV became a household name, and used the medium in their early performances. The band tapped into the American zeitgeist and ridiculed its materialistic values, superficial advertising methods, took a poke at religious fundamentalists and often questioned sexual taboos. They took popular culture by the scruff of the neck, turned it upside down, and made it into entertainment.
