When: Sat., Dec. 5, 9:30 p.m. 2015
Milwaukee four-piece Platinum Boys, despite the luxurious name, play cheap, gritty, power-pop with an over-the-top rock-and-roll core. Cock-rock through and through, the Platinum Boys sound is infused with elements of 1980s glam and punk, but heavy on the scuzzier side of things. There’s nothing pretty about it. As luck would have it, the boys will take the Limelight stage having just released their new EP Junior Varsity on Forged Artifacts Records the day before. They’ll be joined on the bill by Birmingham honky-tonk-and-roll six-piece Banditos and local garage rockers The Rich Hands.
