Nuclear Winter Wonderland

Once again, thanks to my fabulous friend Ky DiGregorio, I've been introduced to another band I've fallen in love with. The Nuclears, which are sonically reminiscent to KISS, Hanoi Rocks, the Stooges, Alice Cooper, New York Dolls, and more, bring you traditional rock n'roll in a time of frivolous, overproduced Top 40 hits. It's everything you want from rock n'roll: fast cars, loud guitars, beer, whiskey, boredom, and just rocking out for the sake of rocking out.

This Christmas season, they've recorded a big rock n'roll Christmas hit entitled "Nuclear Winter Wonderland." 

The song benefits the charity "Toys for Tots," and all proceeds will go to them if you buy the song! So help the less fortunate by purchasing the song HERE and rock the fuck out! 100% of your money will go to holiday gifts and bringing Christmas cheer to children this holiday season. 

So don't be a douchebagel, buy the song. Rock out with your cock out. And make a child in need smile. 

PS: Don't forget to follow The Nukes on Twitter HERE and visit their website HERE. Buy their album too, it's sick!

Conceived from the mind of an ambitious film student a couple months ago, film maker and visionary Cecilia P√©rez-Homar embarks on a journey that unearths the Lower East Side Rock N' Roll culture and the family and friends that are bound by its lifestyle. It explores identity struggle, notions of confidence and bravery, loneliness, and an array of touching stories that gives justice to the fight we've endured to become who we are today. 

Notorious for its rock n'roll/glamour party scene,  leather-bearing-beer-guzzling cohorts, and gender ambiguous haircuts, NYC's best kept secret is captured on film by virtue of an extraordinary endeavor shot and edited by one of my best friends.  

I'm so blessed and honored to be apart of this project. Never would I have thought I would be given the chance to tell my story, alongside my friends to show the world the close knit family we've become, stringed by our ability to confidently be who we are without bearing prejudice or judgement. The streets of downtown Manhattan allowed us carve a space for us in the world where we fearlessly exude our identities and hold our whiskey high. 

Featuring Darian Darling, Breedlove, Marty E. (The Dirty Pearls), Penny Lane, Jocelyn S., Joe Kane, Greg Mania, and others!

This is our story. This is who we are, vanguards of the LES nightlife:
