Coming off a lovely Punk Valentines Day show at Wassenberg Art Center in Van Wert, Vanity Crash will rock out Saturday March 18 at Yorktown Lanes in Parma Hts, beautiful venue with great seating and views. There is No Cover charge and the show starts at 9:00pm. Thomas will bring his David Bowie multimedia retrospect and weave the presentation between Vanity Crash sets throughout the night. To complement the Bowie show, Vanity Crash is adding a few more Bowie songs and doing an extended Bowie set.
If you haven't seen us in a while, besides Thomas killing it on drums, we have Bill being wild on guitar and the lovely Ally belting out her young pipes. This line up is rock steady and blowing audiences away. So much so, Vanity Crash got a standing ovation at the Wassenberg Art Center.
We are excited to be back in the Cleveland area and look forward to seeing you at Yorktown!

Vanity Crash was born on stage under hot lights in the
crucible of sound and fury as the glam-punk band The Angry
Inch in Cleveland Public Theater’s production of the rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Ever since, Vanity Crash has been dressing up and throwing down with eye-popping
synchronized light shows, outrageous stage costumes and provocative attitude, opening for the likes of the New York Dolls, Poison, Semi Precious Weapons, the Darkness, and Gogol Bordello. The band placed songs in the movies Kingsbury Run and Hellweek. Their recent acclaimed tributes to David Bowie include timeless gems performed live alongside their own incendiary originals.
Jeff Niesel of Scene magazine says, “One of the only bands on the local circuit that keeps the glam rock flame burning brightly, Vanity Crash has been going strong for a decade now, pumping out good, gritty records with regularity.”
Dennis has played guitar for Queue Up, System 56, Verdanzen and The Times. Dennis has composed original scores for numerous plays, including the musical version of Lysistrata and the recent hit at Cleveland Public Theatre, Shakespeare’s Titus. Dennis served as musical director and guitarist for Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.
