Doyle Goes Solo at Whisky: Erstwhile Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein will likely play solo stuff and Misfits classics at these two Whisky gigs. On Friday he performs with the Backsteps, Black Market Theory, Thunderpetz, Our Frankenstein, Salem’s Childe, and Violent by Nature. On Saturday he performs with Weaponized, Defining 13, Hero Injection, Daybenders, and Salem’s Childe.
This writer chatted with Doyle in 2015 around the time of the release of his Abominator album, of which he said, “I think it’s the best thing I’ve done, actually. We’ve got a new one coming out next year. We recorded them at the same time.”
And as for the Doyle solo show, he said, “Just brutality, man. We fuck shit up.”
Of his band, he said, “The drummer is the best I’ve played with, and I put Alex Story right up there with Glenn [Danzig, Misfits]. He’s as good or better a songwriter, a great frontman and a great singer.”
Vocalist Alex Story also sings with Cancerslug, who we chatted with in 2019. Story told us that, “I find that I don’t do well with “time off,” so as soon as I come off a tour with Doyle I jump straight into Cancerslug.”
Doyle Goes Solo at Whisky: The event takes place at 6 p.m. on Friday, March 25 and Saturday, March 26 at the Whisky A Go Go.
