Episode Summary

Semi Precious Weapons - Glam Rock Band
Semi Precious Weapons is a glam rock band from New York City. SPW formed in 2006 with Justin Tranter (vocals), Cole Whittle (bass), Dan Crean (drums), and Aaron Lee Tasjan (who was replaced by guitarist Stevy Pine in 2008). Graduates of the Berklee College of Music, the friends created their own brand of "filthy glamour" rock 'n roll, combining rock, glam, fashion, and a fierce live performance. They released their first album, We Love You, (Razor & Tie) in 2008 using profits from Justin Tranter's jewelry company, Fetty, to help pay for the album. In 2009, SPW was voted the Best Band in NYC by the Village Voice and was signed to Interscope. They have been opening for Lady Gaga on her "Monster Ball" tour since November 2009. They also performed at Lollapalooza in 2010 and will perform at the Sunset Strip Festival in Los Angeles on August 28, 2010. Their latest album, You Love You (Interscope), was released in June 2010.moreless
