The Streetwalkin' Cheetahs are slated to prowl the 15th Street Tavern on Saturday, March 2, in the company of Hemi Cuda and Jet Black Joy -- and the choice of the verb "prowl" isn't simply a failed attempt at cleverness. (Actually, it probably is, but bear with us.) As demonstrated by last year's Triple X release Waiting for the Death of My Generation, this pack of Los Angeles-based rock-and-roll animals is heavily influenced by the Stooges, the MC5 and other denizens of music's wild side; yet they're far too fierce to be dismissed as mere copycats. Moreover, their untamed reputation as a live act should be enhanced by the addition of new bassist John Ramirez, whose talents include breathing fire and performing in the nude. Stop by, and watch the fur fly.
