PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Dance to their eclectic electro-funk, grind to their original R'n'B grooves, and sweat under the intense, penetrating gaze of frontman Dylan Charles Germick as he begs you, in all sincerity, to love yourself no matter what.

Conceived in Oakland, California by two Indiana brothers and their friends, Planet Booty first emerged in the late 00's as an eclectic 6-piece (or more) funk and soul dance band powerhouse preaching sweaty joy along the west coast. In 2014, singers Dylan Germick and Josh Cantero, along with bassist Rob Gwin, reinvented the group as a tour-focused trio with a tighter electrofunk sound and an even sexier, sweatier, more intimate message of positivity and inclusivity.

Since then Planet Booty has toured extensively throughout the United States, at club dates and festivals including SXSW and multiple Pride events, and have supported Lizzo, Ninja Sex Party, TWRP, Sisqo, Turquoise Jeep, Capital Cities, Escort, K Flay, and countless more. In 2019 Planet Booty released their fifth record, the Guilty Pleasure EP.

Raw Ramp: "An itch 'n' scratchy electro beat and young-funk in its heart." Broke Ass Stuart: "They had us laughing and dancing the entire time, the crowd was going nuts." Spinning Platters: "Dylan Germick is a true performer and every moment on stage he is there to entertain." Albuquerque Alibi: "Their vigor and passion is incredible and virtually unmatched by any show I've been to"--

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
There comes a moment in every Slim Cessna's Auto Club show when you realize you're seeing something you'll never see anywhere else. It's Slim Cessna in a white cowboy hat and beard, the lights haloing his ungainly frame, horn-rimmed glasses flashing through the smoke. He's trading lyrics and insults with Munly Munly, gaunt and strange, dressed in a shade of black particular to preachers and burnt down barns. Their voices rise and converge in the kind of exquisite harmony usually found in Sacred Harp congregations, and then the band cuts loose, the best live band in the world, and the two men are doing battle, playing out some cathartic war between good and evil on stage. Or trading dance steps. You can't tell.

I said the best live band in the world, and I ain't the only one. No Depression and Spin Magazine have said the same. This is a band that's held its own onstage with everybody from Johnny Cash to the Dresden Dolls. But you listen to the recording of "That Fierce Cow is Common Sense in a Country Dress," and it'll take you just about four minutes before you realize you're listening to the best band in the world, period. It's Lord Dwight Pentacost leading the lunatic rapture on his Jesus and Mary double-necked guitar; Rebecca Vera playing pedal steel so sublimely that I swear to God you can see the ghost of Ralph Mooney circling the stage; and, holding down the rhythm section like they have with each other since seventh grade, The Peeler on drums and Danny Pants on the doghouse bass, driving the band, making you lose your damn mind.

They've been making music for over twenty years, and there is, quite simply, nothing else like it. It's gospel music, is what I've decided. Gospel music for a blasted world. A world straining and bursting in constant pain, but one that can't help but overspill with joy - even knowing better. And the songs, Jesus. Songs about Colorado Indian hater John Chivington, alien abductions, patricide, a man born without a spine. This is the wild, bloody and weird America of Harry Crews, the only America worth a damn. It's what Flannery O'Connor was trying to say when she wrote of dark romances and the grotesque. If you've got a heart, these songs'll break it, and if you've got any laughter left in you, they'll beat it out of you until you cry.

I probably can't improve on what Jello Biafra said about Slim Cessna's Auto Club, that they're "the country band that plays the bar at the end of the world." But I like to think that as long as they're around, they can still save us from that end. Or at least from what currently passes as country music.
