SMOOCH SMOOCH: Lady lightning.
Bang Camaro packed about 150 people into the Middle East upstairs last night for the debut of their first officialisimo music video: a clip for their smash hit single "Push Push (Lady Lightning)" lensed by Adam Moyer of TV's American Chopper, who offered his services after catching the band's first-ever show at the Paradise last year. For everyone who wasn't there, check it in widescreen right here (and while you're at it maybe read the interview):

We also managed to lay hands on a copy of the group's debut CD, which contains four songs you can't pay-download (yet?) off MySpace. The full band (minus their New Zealander bassist, who was in New Zealand) played four or five songs and as usual, they brought the stadium to the club. The choir got drunk enough on free Stoli that they didn't seem to notice when the after-show DJs switched from hair-metal to Strokes tunes.
All of this is part of the buildup to the full monte Saturday night at the Paradise, when all hell will break loose. Tickets are going briskly, you might not want to sleep on this one.
