Wick and the Tricks

Wick and the Tricks is a glittering juggernaut of Rock-&-Roll that will leave you sweaty, smiling, and staggering home like a fiery one-night-stand. Ever since they crawled out of the trash soaked shores of the Missouri river and slipped into the streets of Kansas City, middle America has never been the same. Nationally infamous for their salaciously energetic performances full of political undertones, it’s likely by the end of the show you’ll either be making out or in a fist fight with one of them. Lucky you.

In the spirit of bands like the New York Dolls, The Stooges, and Jim Carroll the Tricks are carrying the torch of riot grrrl and queercore bands with some not so subtle nods to Joan Jett. They have played with such acts as Girl in a Coma, Priests, The Shondes, and Barb Wire Dolls. Their most recent release, Not Enough, is a solid Rock-&-Roll album that will make you hop, skip, and jump into bed with the whole band. Not Enough, Wick & The Tricks debut 7″ is out NOW on Black Site Records.

Wick the Trick, villain and hero of this mad show of a band. Wick’s stage presence brews a startlingly potent essence of sleaze laced with thinly-veiled social commentary that will keep you enraptured for an entire evening. Wick and the Tricks is a band with a mission, but hopes you’re have too much fun to notice.
