Check Out: Mannequin Men play and talk at Scion Garage Fest (CoS Premiere)

    Proto-punk Chicago-based Mannequin Men know how to bring the m’er f’ing ruckus. Case in point the videos below, which feature charged performances of “Hobby Girl” and “Mattress” from last year’s Scion Garage Fest. The band’s ready-fire-aim live show abounding with shout choruses and plenty of Lust For Life finds Mannequin Men in its comfort zone: colliding its songs into the crowd like primates of rock and roll.

    Compliments of Scion A/V, you can find exclusive clips of both performances below, as well as a hometown-bolstering interview conducted during the festival. None of this stuff has seen the light of day before, so be one of the first to check it out.

    Oh, and if you find your preferred musical ride firmly parked in the Garage, check out In the Red Radio on Scion Radio 17 for all your streaming radio needs. (Full disclosure: Scion advertises on Consequence of Sound.)
