Showcase Showdown (band)

Showcase Showdown was a pogo punk band from Boston in the 1990's. They toured the Northeast extensively and became notorious for their tongue-in-cheek songs, often about obscure cultural icons from political history, television shows and comic books.

Showcase Showdown released only two full-length albums, "Permanent Stains" and "Appetite of Kings." They released much of their work on 7" vinyl singles and cassettes, and were featured on several split EPs including a split with Blanks 77 titled "Drunk at the Karaoke Bar" featuring duets by mostly inebriated members of both bands.

The lineup of the group consisted of Albert "Ping Pong" Genna on vocals, Victoria Arthur on bass, Tom Cloherty on guitar, and Steven "Chez Nips" Maxwell on drums. Since breaking up, Arthur and Cloherty (who are married to each other) have formed the group The Spitzz.
