When: Sat., April 16, 8 p.m. 2011

I always wondered how execs for the Revco chain felt about the Revolting Cocks and their fan-favorite nickname, RevCo; there's probably a whole generation of kids who giggled every time they bought condoms at one of those drugstores. Helmed in turn by several members (heh) of the Wax Trax! family, this lewd and rude industrial band had a great run from the mid-80s through the early 90s, and has been active in spurts (heh) as recently as last year; their never-duplicated aesthetic proved that "Eurotrash" and "redneck" can be blended with unforgettable results. For this show, part of the three-day Wax Trax! Records Retrospectacle, key former RevCo players Luc Van Acker, Paul Barker, and Chris Connelly will reach into the back catalog for RevCo's best-loved pieces of Parents Music Resource Center bait; after all, none of these guys are actually on 2010's Got Cock? (13th Planet), which is just as filthy as the band's classic albums but not as funny. Thrill Kill Kult nature">—Monica Kendrick
