Yes – you read that right.
You’d think after touring for the better part of this year, and committed for the majority of the next, that rockers Semi Precious Weapons would use their time off the monster Lady Gaga Monster Ball Tour to chillax. Far from it. While on hiatus from the uber successful Lady G. tour, the NYC rockers launched a 13-city headlining “Dirty Showbiz” Tour. On Oct. 8, the band (frontman Justin Tranter, bassist Cole Whittle, drummer Dan Crean and guitarist Stevy Pyne) returned to their native New York (MF) City, and rocked Irving Plaza. The gig was the second to last tour date for the band, who will rejoin Gaga and her Little Monsters overseas later this week.
Moments before they took the stage, I interviewed the entire band (well, at least at first) on their amazing year, Lady Gaga, and another New York icon — Madonna. The interview unfolds below… As they might say: enjoy it, bitches.
A pipe dream promo… for me anyway.
SPW want you to attend their headlining shows. You’ve seen them with Gaga, now go gaga over them alone. Hey, that worked. Anyway, here’s a call out to all fans of thecheappop.com! Any FYI – get all your tickets to SPW headlining shows here: http://www.semipreciousweapons.com/events/

SPW’s Debut Album out June 29th on Geffen/Interscope
Semi Precious Weapons, one of TheCheapPop’s favorite band, always give the fans what they want. At a recent tour stop in DC, the fans wanted “One more song! One more song!” Justin even let the crowd choose which song they wanted to hear.
Semi Precious Weapons’ debut album We Love You. just dropped this week. It features one amazing song after the other – sure to make you dance and shake your pants. I know I did the latter. In any event, want an album of your own? It’s easy. Help spread the SPW interviews on YouTube around the InterWeb. The pop conducted an interview over the summer, and we want to see those stats rise. Do it, to it, and we’ll send you a copy of your own. Comment below and tell us what you did to spread the SPW, the pop, and the cream cheese.
The quality will get better. Promise.
