Why Isn't Cheap Trick in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame? Announces Two FREE Shows and a Crowd Funding Protest!

"I believe there are two types of people in this world. Those who believe that Cheap Trick should be in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and those heretical unbelievers who shall be cast into a fiery pit of Rock and Roll Damnation to burn for eternity."  

- Lou Brutus, 2013 & 2014 Radio Contraband Award Winner: Best Nationally Syndicated DJ in USA (And Degenerate Cheap Trick Fan).

Hey gang, Colin here, I have a question and I know you have it too: Why Isn't Cheap Trick in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame? Certainly somebody must have the answer, so please come forward if you or anybody you know has any clues to solving this puzzle. In the meantime, the band "Why Isn't Cheap Trick in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?" returns for the third straight year hoping to shed some light on this most mysterious of all mysteries.

Saturday April 18th:  Beachland Ballroom Cleveland, OH.  Afternoon show!  Doors, 1pm. Teenage Fanclub Fanclub opens the show at 1:30 with WICTITRNRHOF  following.

We scheduled an afternoon show to avoid any conflict with the actual Rock Hall induction ceremonies being held that evening just down the road.  Rumor has it members of Green Day may attend as they too are trying to find the answer to this question.

Friday April 17th:  Ace of Cups Columbus, OH.  Doors, 8pm.  Teenage Fanclub Fanclub on at 9pm.  WICTITRNRHOF on at 10:15.

As always, shows are FREE and we will be playing a set of all Cheap Trick covers that will surely make you long for the real Cheap Trick.  Haters please piss off as I am a fan of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and visit with my son every year.  Just trying to make a cool place even cooler.  And spare me who YOU think should be inducted.  Don't care.  If it bugs you so much, start a band called "Why Isn't BTO in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?"  PLEASE help us spread the word and together we can finally find the answer to this troubling question.  Thanking you in advance, Colin Gawel.

Please note the band, "Why Isn't Cheap Trick in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame?" is NOT affiliated with the real Cheap Trick or any other "Induct Cheap Trick" movement though we applaud and support our comrades in arms.
