Punk-rock legend Texas Terri, or TxT, has announced 2011 US tour dates for her current band, Texas Terri Bomb!
Terri moved to Berlin four years ago and US performances have since become a rarity. According to a recent Facebook post, fans should “make a point to be at one of these shows as TxT will not be coming back to the US anytime soon after this.”
Texas Terri will have a different lineup backing her in each state. Most notable is Don “Demon Boy” Cilurso, who was Terri’s songwriting partner in her previous (and most successful) band, Texas Terri & The Stiff Ones. Cilurso and his current band, The Hot Things, will back Terri for all of her Texas dates.
TxT is famous for her wild, scantily clad stage antics, and has been favorably compared to Lux Interior, Mick Jagger and Wendy O. Williams. One of Terri’s regularly occurring on-stage moves has been to rip her shirt off, revealing a bare chest save for the letters “TxT” in black electrical tape over her breasts.
