They said this could never happen; they said it never would! But they are Royal Trux – they do whatever they want. Neil Hagerty and Jennifer Herrema are one of the most notorious and confounding duos in rock and roll, a group that leaves you excited, inspired and bewildered-all within the same song. GONE FOREVER – recoiled back into whatever radical xanadu they emerged from, into whatever fever dream they’d inhabited. The future was cancelled. They promised!
Well, fuck promises.
Nearly 15 years removed from the stage, Royal Trux made their grand re-entrance this past summer at Beserktown and offered up what can only be categorized as the ripest jam session of all time! The biting guitar pyrotechnics and dynamic howls courtesy of Neil Hagerty & Jennifer Herrema once again crept into our ears in a live setting, a brilliant gateway to the fourth dimension and psychic satisfaction. This moment of rock n’ roll history, although partly captured on video, seemed to be fleeting. Yet these two always have something up their sleeve: in typical Trux fashion, one step ahead, Jennifer and Neil announced another Royal Trux performance, this time across the coast!
That’s right; Royal Trux brought some adventure back to a city in desperate need right before the holiday season at Webster Hall. With two more shows booked, consider it as another middle finger to the notion of “no more live performances” because who the fuck knows what’s in store for the future?! This is Royal Trux damnit!
