San Diego via El Centro screamers http://www.myspace.com/batwingskillyou">Batwings will be debuting their new line up at the Ruby Room on May 20. Singer/keys/bassist Robbie Lopez left the band and is currently making music with http://www.myspace.com/booreport">Boo Report, http://www.myspace.com/cubandpony">Cub and Pony, and http://www.myspace.com/chavelasrule">Giraffe Ears. Bass duties are being resumed by guitarist Larry Stage's brother Scott (http://soundcloud.com/snails-1">SnailS!) and Mexicali native Carlos Quintero (http://www.myspace.com/lipstickterror">Lipstick Terror, http://www.myspace.com/chromeeyespace">Chrome Eye) has joined on vocals.
The Ruby Room show will also be the premiere of guitar/vox Bryan Oczkowski's Pure Data Machine, a homemade noise generator which runs off Pure Data, an open source visual programming language created by UCSD professor Miller Puckett. (EDIT: It turns out this is a lie. The PDM will rear its head in a few months.)
The band expects to release an album, recorded at UCSD's Conrad Prebys Music Center, in the next few months.
