Add VAIN to the List

vain.jpgAccording to the Rocklahoma rumor mill (maybe I should trademark that phrase?) VAIN will be among the 2008 performers. If this is true, it would be a great opportunity to see an underrated punk/glam band with a cult following.

When I watched the clip of "Beat the Bullet" this morning, I was instantly reminded of Skid Row. I guess that's not surprising since VAIN opened for Skid Row back in 1989/90.

If you like Jetboy, you'll probably like VAIN since they both came from the San Francisco Metal scene and I'm pretty sure they ran in the same social circles.

Reintroduce yourself to VAIN by watching "Beat the Bullet."

Remember, I'm keeping a running tally of the rumored and confirmed Rocklahoma 2008 bands in the Message Board section of this website.

Vain kicks ass! I think that they would be a good addition to the Rocklahoma lineup if indeed the rumor is true. Their debut '89 release "No Respect" is a glam/sleaze classic! My favorite song from them is the title track off of that album, No Respect.

It's official. WOW....Finally get to see Vain!!! This is the best news Upscope has heard in a long time. The only complaint is how low on the bill they are.
