The rest of the country including celeb blogger Perez Hilton is finally starting to wake up to something St. Louis has known for several years now: NYC's Semi Precious Weapons is a must-see band. Fronted by Justin Tranter a six-foot-tall beanpole fond of sporting flamboyant makeup, severe hairdos and cutting-edge fashion the trio specializes in stomping glam-garage-rock indebted to the New York Dolls, Bowie, T. Rex and other members of the glitter-rock elite. In fact, legendary Thin White Duke collaborator Tony Visconti produced this year's We Love You.
