MP3: Kill Miss Pretty — Negative Creep
Kill Miss Pretty will be bringing cool, electro-punk sounds to its latest gig, a Freezer Party on Miami Beach.
Exactly what’s up with the chilly reception? Russ Rogers, the band’s co-founder and guitarist, said that’s for fans to figure outwhen the costumes and props are unveiled July 13 at Electro-a-Go-Go at the Marlin Hotel, 1200 Collins Ave.
KMP was formed last year, with Rogers joined by his wife, Alicia, on vocals, and bassist Martin Davis. Rogers promises that each show will have a different theme.
The band’s debut concert May 26 at Gumwrappers in Fort Lauderdale was a down-the-rabbit-hole affair with members wearing Alice in Wonderland-style outfits.
Rogers also plays guitar with the Numb Ones, with guitarist James Coyle and drummer Phil Tucciarone. They released their first CD of catchy heavy-rock tunes, Everything in Between, in September on Cleopatra Records.
KMP is set to release an indie CD this fall. Unlike the Numb Ones, Rogers describes Pretty’s beat as having more of a dance element, with delectable grooves similar to the Faint and Jucifer, and Fugazi-tinged razor guitar.
“My wife and I are very creative,” Rogers said. “We love music and it’s something we can do together. The fact that people can listen to it and dig it, that’s all the better.”
KMP is expected to hit the stage around 11 p.m. at the Marlin. Contact 305-604-3595 or electroagogomiami.com.
