Diamante, with Sabbatar, Lamb Bed, Monsters on Maple Street, Cut-Throat Queens; Sunday, Dec. 3, 6:30 p.m., sunshinestudioslive.com
our first encounter with Diamante may or may not have been her 2015 video There’s a Party in My Pants (And You’re All Invited)
, which appears to have been pulled off the internet entirely, with the lone exception of one Moscow-based hosting service called Rutube. There could, of course, be any number of reasons for this particular vanishing act, although the first that comes to mind is country novelty songwriter Roger Alan Wade writing and recording a song with the same title — and, um, concept — that appeared five years earlier on the Jackass 3D
soundtrack. No big loss, in any case, since the 21-year-old Boston native’s subsequent singles “Bite Your Kiss” and “Coming in Hot” have racked up more than 2 million views, and they don’t sound all that different. Think basic Joan Jett spiked with good ol’ boy Southern rock. So if that’s your thing, this is your invitation.
