Past Event: May 7, 2011 - Bum n Draze 8th Birthday with special guests Rock n Roll Highschool

Saturday Night was Bum N Draze's 8th Anniversary Party at Sharky Bar to celebrate their status as Indo-China's Loudest & Nastiest Rock N Roll Band - and what a night it was!

Certainly not for the faint-hearted and those 'hard-of-hearing' - the Finnish Rockers from 'beginning to end' literally tore-up the place! And i mean literally!

While the Finns readied themselves and feasted backstage in the 'Green Room' with their horde of 'VIP Guests' on copius amounts of raw meat and endless bottles of Russian Vodka - Rock N Roll High School were given the dubious slot of 'opening act' before Bum N Draze's legion of adoring fans!

However, the Ultimate Ramones Band were well-up for the challenge. And with Stewwy Ramone and Robbie Ramone (out on parole) and Melanie Ramone and Davey Ramone in support - the Sharky crowd were soon up on their feet and dancing in the aisles.

Ramones classics such as 'Blitzkreig Bop', 'I Wanna Be Sedated', 'Commando' and 'Chinese Rocks' were given the full treatment by Stewwy and the Boyz - as they fully worked-up the appreciative crowd - in a very fiesty, but well rehearsed set!

With the exit of 'The Ramones' the atomsphere was 'just about right' by the time the Finnish Rockers made their entrance up onto the stage!

And what an entrance it was! Band members in straitjackets, wardens with baseball bats and armed guards wearing 'Jason' masks - it was more like a scene from 'Hannibal Lecter' than the start of a rock concert !

But soon the Bum N Draze bandwagon was on a 'roll' and the healthy Sharky crowd were soon entertained to a classic rendition of their musical anniversary catalogue.

From start to Finnish (no pun intended) - the Bum N Draze originals were belted out in 'no uncompromising manner'. 'Strangeways' , 'Mr. Tampax' and 'If Mekong Was Whiskey' - just a few of the numbers that truly rocked the joint.

Not to mention great covers of songs such as 'Roadrunner', 'Whorehouse Blues' and 'All Along The Watchtower.'

And if that didn't grab yer - the guest appearance of Finnish Superstar and Punk Rocker 'Toumo' (complete with Mohican) singing the Bum N Draze classic 'Ostrich Song' - brought the madcap evening to it's expected chaotic conclusion!

Drummer Yanni (in true Keith Moon style) completely demolished the drum-kit - while the rest of the bad swung their guitars around like demented 'texas chainsaws' !

A big, big thank goes out to Yanni, Pasi and Jet for a great evening of sublime 'heavy and loud' extreme rock n roll !

Hope to see them and superstar guest Toumo (Kiima Band) back very soon at Sharky Bar - still the Number One Rock N Roll Bar in Indo-China !

Exhausted !
