Description: The Detroit rock n' roll power trio White Shag will return to Toledo to play a show on Saturday, August 23 at Frankies. The show will also feature two prominent Ohio rock bands, Kitty Glitter and Saturnine Hello.

White Shag has been tearing up stages from Detroit to Austin with their raw Detroit rock n' roll. After opening for rock legend Cherie Currie and taking home a Detroit Music Award for “Best Hard Rock Band” in 2013, the band took their show on the road around the midwest and trekked down to SXSW earlier this year to play shows and begin recording their debut album. The band has received many accolades from the music press along the way, here is what two had to say:

"There are power trios and there is White Shag - a band with a powerful sound that's taking the town of Detroit by storm. ROCKWiRED has always had a thing for strong female fronted bands and White Shag gave that to us in abundance with a heavy fucking sound that combined the likes of Led Zeppelin and Suzi Quatro. They were just one of the many bands that came to us from the Motor City this year and they are one of three to make onto the year end list.” DJ Brian Lush, ROCKWiRED MAGAZINE

"White Shag is an engaging and highly entertaining group that is sure to satisfy. Their time-honored mash of rock star flair and meat and potatoes riffage should appeal to music fans of all ages. And their heavy sound and visual onslaught has just the right amount of danger, but comes off as something more approachable and real than off-putting. Mendoza and company are an essential representation of what's cooking in Detroit and certainly poised for wider things on the national scale as well." Eric Harabadian, Music Connection

The night also features two of Ohios' finest bands, indie garage rockers Kitty Glitter will bring their indie rock from the black swamp when they perform and headlining the show are hard rockers Saturnine Hello who have been described as “If Motley Crue and the Goo Goo Dolls had a baby on Mars, it would be Saturnine Hello.”

White Shag brings their show to the Toledo's premiere rock club Frankies located at 308 Main Street, Toledo. 419-693-5300 Doors are at 9 p.m. and the show is all-ages. Tickets are $10.www.Frankiesinnercity.com
