Trust us, it’s possible to have the best night of your life while listening to a band named The Worsties.
The Nashville-based act formed in 2005 and has gained a growing fan base, thanks in part to airplay on shows like “The Real World.”
They perform at Eighty-Five in a Saturday show that also includes Today the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun.
The Worsties promise a combination of ’70s punk, ’80s pop/glam and traces of acts like Motorhead and the Pixies.
Never miss a local story.
The band has shared the stage with Big Boi from OutKast, Saving Abel, Theory of a Deadman and more.
Look up The Worsties on YouTube and you’ll find a video for “Kitty Litter,” their song that appeared on the Washington, D.C. installment of “The Real World.”
Lead singer Anna Worstell — “Madame Worsty” — wears oversized sunglasses and an animal print jacket while performing in a junkyard atmosphere.
Some fans online compare her to Gwen Stefani from No Doubt, but The Worsties’ blend of “foxy rock” doesn’t succumb to predictability.
They offer a refreshing promise of nightlife surprises — and the excitement of a discography that includes “Dude. Dude. Dude. Totally!”
