Hanging with the Coathangers

I spent last Tuesday night (Aug. 28) at El Bar, and by doing so, simultaneously paid homage to rock music, alcohol and the Coathangers. (You can read more about them in Chad Radford's CL story, "Boobie trapped," this week.) The new Triple D’s Rock Night (occurring Sept. 11, Sept. 25, then every Tuesday beginning in October at El Bar) features Damon Hare, Drennen Quinn and Dustan Nigro spinning rock favorites — a rare and pleasant break from the normal (and sometimes tired) DJ routines.

The Triple D’s hosted a Coathangers listening party for the release of their upcoming debut CD. And though there were no miniature horses, as rumored to be in attendance at the upcoming release party at Criminal Records Sept. 4, the club was packed by midnight with the Coathangers, their label managers Trey and Travis at Rob’s House Records, and a crew of friends squeezed into the small club in the basement of El Azteca.

Everyone was in good spirits as the booze flowed and the DJs spun old rock favorites mixed with the sounds of the Coathangers' new album. The girls were all smiles — giddy, confident and grateful. Their new album drops Sept. 4 on Rob’s House Records, with an album release show that day at Criminal Records at 7 p.m. It's free, and there's beer. Go, and pay your own respects to beer and fun local music.
