Staff Pick: Mike Hard and the God Bullies at Ace of Cups

From the November 24, 2011 edition

Among the many legendary scourges from the Amphetamine Reptile catalog is Mike Hard and the God Bullies, a grimy garage-rock combo bent on horror-show narratives and nihilistic noise. They’ve been back in action lately, including a set for AmRep’s 25 anniversary show last year and a stop at The Summit earlier this year. Now they’re headed for Ace of Cups on Thanksgiving Eve to play with Columbus rock royalty including Cheater Slicks and Night Family, the latter featuring the owner of the joint, Marcy Mays, on lead vocals. Proceeds from this $10 shindig go to Mid-Ohio Foodbank and the ASD Nest Program for autistic children; reduce your cover charge by bringing three canned goods.
