For five nights in January, Toronto rawk commandos Crash Kelly will be drinking, rocking and strutting their way through Hollywood , trolling the Strip for loose women and bad fun. Led by vocalist/guitarist Sean Kelly , Crash Kelly are bringing back the glory days of ’70s glitter-rock and power-stomp, not to mention the more ruthless sounds of the ’80s hairspray-swarm . Think the Alice Cooper Group , The Sweet and Aerosmith before they got old, fat and irrelevant; think T. Rex before Marc Bolan got all bloated. Then imagine the younger, “decade of decadence” members of Motley Crue and RATT pounding beers and groupies in an alley off of the Sunset Strip. Hell, they even cover Cheap Trick’s “ELO Kiddies” and Rainbow’s “Since You Been Gone” better than the originals.

Crash Kelly ‘s unstoppable debut, Penny Pills , is set for release via Liquor And Poker Music on January 25, and it might as well be the swaggering alternate soundtrack for Fast Times at Ridgemont High . Only, you know, Canadian. Suffice to say, the action is go.

The rock n roll dominance will happen accordingly:

Sunday January 9th @ The Casbah,San Diego with Dirty Power
Thursday, January 13 @ Club Vodka with Razor’s Edge (featuring ex-AC/DC drummer Chris Slade). Crash Kelly take the stage @ 8:15pm sharp.
Friday, January 14 @ Paladino’s in Los Angeles with Union (featuring ex-KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick, ex-KISS drummer Eric Singer and ex-Motley Crue vocalist/RATT guitarist John Corabi). Crash Kelly to go on at 9pm.
Saturday, January 15 th @ Thee Parkside in San Fransicso with Dirty Power
Wednesday, January 19 at The Dragonfly in Hollywood with Bubble . Crash Kelly to go on at 9:30pm
