The Erotics have to miss gig due to frontman Mike Trash passing out
New York based rockers The Erotics have had to skip their planned tour stop at The Tusk in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA today due to their frontman Mike Trash unexpectedly passing out. The group was in the midst of a tour supporting Prophets Of Addiction.
Trash posted the following on his Facebook account earlier today:
“So I’m sad to report, we will be unable to play in Phillly tonight, earlier today I passed out due to heat exhaustion and dehydration…..
my own fault I guess, Ive been burning the candle at both ends for the past few weeks, between working all week, then going straight on the road for 3-4 days, the past few weeks,,,,,
but after a day of rest, staying cool and hydrated, I wil be OK, and we WILL be playing tomorrow in Delaware and Sat in Virginia!!!!passing out”
Speaking exclusively to Sleaze Roxx today, Trash provided more details on what occurred: “Well, I was having dizziness yesterday, due to the high heat humidity, but ignored it, but earlier this afternoon I got dizzy and passed out do to it, we were scheduled to leave for Philadelphia early this afternoon, but decided it would be best, to rest up, stay indoors (air-conditioning), and rehydrate….. Hopefully, most likely I should be OK to perform in Delaware and Virginia this Fri and Sat. I refused medical attention, probably stubborn of me to do that. I had something similar to this happen six years ago, and believe we had to reschedule a gig, I just don’t react well to extreme heat, as many folks don’t.”
The Erotics are still scheduled to play the two following gigs in the days to come:
Fri: 8/12 at Oddity Bar in Willimington, Delaware, USA
Sat: 8/13 at The Holy Ale in Stafford, Virginia, USA
The following tour dates have already been completed:

Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of The Erotics‘ EP Three Sheets To The Wind, which was released back in October 2015: “It’s hard to believe that The Erotics have been at it since in or about 1996 because Three Sheets To The Wind sounds so raw, dirty and unfiltered, and closer to a group’s debut record before it cleans up and polishes its act over the years rather than a veteran band celebrating twenty years of existence that keeps cranking out sleazy dirty musical deliveries. Mixing the sleaze of early Faster Pussycat with punk edge of The Ramones, The Erotics do not reinvent the wheel with the three songs on their latest mini-album Three Sheets To The Wind but simply deliver a nasty sleaze dripping three songs that all rock from start to finish.”
