Drop-Off Productions Presents: T-Rextasy w/ Blackerface + Special Guests Live!

Drop-Off Productions proudly presents the punchy lyrics and catchy hooks of New York-based, self-proclaimed “Dashing Dino Dames,” T-Rextasy. Armed with quick wit and a feminist punk ethos, the music of T-Rextasy is an impeccable combination of sarcastic, swaggering humor and timeless pop-punk grooves – we’re not talking the presumptive Riot Girrl or Twee labels here – the music is chaotic and energetic, at times reminiscent of ‘Cut” era Slits; “hyper-verbal rock & roll” marked by the steady rhythms of drummer Ebun Nazon-Power and bassist Annie Fidoten, as well as the twin guitars of Lena Abraham and Vera Kahn – Lyris Faron at the helm, commanding center stage with her bouncy dance movements and unique vocal style. Their live show is full of spectacular antics: neon ensembles, synchronized dancing, and audience participation that’s part performance-art-carnival, part rock gig. Committed to intersectional feminism, the group mobilizes their live act and social media platforms to raise awareness of issues, donates merchandise proceeds to organizations, and intentionally curates inclusive, safe shows. T-Rextasy released their debut full length album, “Jurassic Punk”, via Miscreant Records and Father/Daughter Records in 2016 and are currently gearing up to release their follow up “, Prehysteria,” recorded in New Paltz, NY at Salvation Recording Co. (Vagabon, Diet Cig) in December 2017.

Joining them on tour is Chicago-based afropunk/blues/no wavers, Blacker Face. Comprised of Isaac Nicholas – Guitar, background vocals, Jolene W/E – Lead vocals, Louis N. Clark – Synths, piano, background vocals, Noah Jones – Percussion, background vocals, and pt Bell – Bass guitar, vocals in a liminal space between background and lead – Blacker Face has been spewing out their visceral dance of anti-oppression knowledge and brand of vicious visce-rage throughout the windy city for several years. They can go from pure noise to crooning beautifully and back again while never missing a beat. The music is chaotic, energetic, at times splintering notes and shattering chords like windows falling out of a skyscraper. It’s everything you loved (or hated) about Teenage Jesus and the Jerks – but in a world where Lydia Lunch could actually sing. The band released their latest EP “Think Piece” back in April, addressing racial tensions, political turmoil, and the daily struggle of existing in 2018 amongst the six pulsating tracks. Additional support to be announced. This is a 21+ show at the world famous Surfside 7, Friday, August 31 – Tickets will be available beginning Friday, June 15 online at www.surfsideseven.com, the ticketing link above and the bar.
