Tragedy: All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
Tragedy: All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees
Tragedy: All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees and Beyond, has changed the face of music forever. Tragedy takes your favorite Bee Gees, disco and soft-rock classics and reinvents them in a Heavy Metal fashion. The result is aural ecstasy. You may enter the Tragedy experience unaware of your latent appreciation for gooey soft rock or flamboyant metal, but you shall emerge forever humbled by the greatness of Tragedy (and covered in glitter!).

Tragedy has sold out venues like Bowery Ballroom, Brooklyn Bowl and Terminal 5 in their hometown of NYC, as well as those in far-away lands such as London, Glasgow, Disneyland, Austin, Boston, DC, Tampa and Guilfest (with Motorhead).

Tragedy has released two critically acclaimed albums: We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong and Humbled By Our Greatness. Release of their third, Death to False Disco-Metal, is se for September 2013.

“Tragedy manage to dwell in the realm of novelty while far exceeding their worth as a concept ... the aesthetic is somewhere in between the flamboyance of the disco-era Bee Gees and the flamboyance of mid-eighties hair metal, with some extra flamboyance thrown in for the sake of flamboyance.”
Tiny Mix Tapes

“Hard riffs, tight white flares, and even tighter octave-scraping harmonies…essential listening.”
The Sun, UK

“Everyone from Feist to Tom Jones has covered the disco hits of the Bee Gees, but perhaps no one does those gooey soft-rock numbers better than Tragedy…Shiny costumes, dramatic eye makeup and headbanging hilarity…”

Village Voice

“Back in the dark days of disco, the Bee Gees were the shit, despite having massive teeth, bigger hair and a falsetto only dogs could hear…with the righteous power of heavy metal, We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong mixes Guns ‘N’ Roses swagger, the Scorpions’ sense of pomp and Judas Priest-esque vocals to create a sound that is exactly like The Darkness!”
Hair Supply - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Hair Supply is the greatest heavy metal tribute to Air Supply that
ever existed. It was formed in 2004 by Phil Costello, although its
history can be traced back to the Big Bang (or Big "Chill," as the
hotly contested meme goes in contemporary scientific parlance). In
2007, Phil went on to co-found Tragedy, the greatest heavy metal
tribute to the Bee Gees that ever existed, thus proving that Hair
Supply is not only the greatest metal Air Supply tribute band that
ever existed (that much was known before Tragedy), but pretty much the most
seminal band ever, of all times. In fact, please see our photo, in
which you can actually literally see the semen embark toward propagating more
and more creations of genius throughout perpetuity, all at the behest
of Hair Supply.

Hair Supply has not played a show since 2007, which makes their
upcoming show at Mercury Lounge in November the most importantly
anticipated gig of all times.
