BIO

Vanity Crash was born on stage under hot lights in the 
 crucible of sound and fury as the glam-punk band The Angry 
 Inch in Cleveland Public Theater’s production of the rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Ever since, Vanity Crash has been dressing up and throwing down with eye-popping 
 synchronized light shows, outrageous stage costumes and provocative attitude, opening for the likes of the New York Dolls, Poison, Semi Precious Weapons, the Darkness, and Gogol Bordello. The band placed songs in the movies Kingsbury Run and Hellweek. Their recent acclaimed tributes to David Bowie include timeless gems performed live alongside their own incendiary originals.


Jeff Niesel of Scene magazine says, “One of the only bands on the local circuit that keeps the glam rock flame burning brightly, Vanity Crash has been going strong for a decade now, pumping out good, gritty records with regularity.”
