Street Drum Corps is a drums and percussion based performance group that has been described as a Punk Rock Stomp.  Their music is a combination of new punk with street drumming played on various instruments and recycled objects along with some EDM beats (Listen on Spotify)  They are great guys who I had the pleasure of partying with a couple years ago when they were in town opening for 30 Seconds to Mars.  Congratulations to them on finally presenting their new production show “Lost Vegas” tonight 1/26/13 at Vinyl inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Vegas.  They are bringing along special guests Tommy Lee of Motley Crue, Adrian Young of No Doubt, and Stephen Perkins of Jane’s Addiction.  Stay tuned for a review
