Bev Rage & the Drinks are a loud, fast, and brash queer garage-pop band from Chicago.

Bev Rage & the Drinks are a loud, fast, and brash queer garage-pop band from Chicago formed in 2015. Fronted by guitarist Beverly Rage, a 7- foot tall drag queen with hair and heels, the band is known for their energetic live shows, biting humor, and incredibly catchy songs. The band draws from a range of influences in the power-pop, punk, and electro-pop world, but their sound is hard to nail down. With the release of their second LP “Exes & Hexes” Bev & the Drinks plan to tour the US, play festivals, and spread their unique brand of punk music to as many people as possible.

Bev Rage & the Drinks is:
Beverly Rage (vocals and guitar)
Sam Westerling (bass guitar and vocals)
Mary Rose Gonzales (drums and stick twirls)
Dan Jarvis (lead guitar, organ, and vocals)

This is one of the best punk albums I’ve heard all year.  It’s full of squalling guitars, rough-edge drums, fuzzed-out bass, and more anger and sass than the green room at a Parisian fashion show.  Don’t miss out on it.
