Motley Crouton to return for show at Auburn lounge

Tongue-in-cheek '80s cover band Motley Crouton will return for its first concert in almost two years Friday, Aug. 6, at the Lavish Lounge in Auburn. The band formed more than 15 years ago at an open mic night at Spirits Tavern in Auburn, member Eric Marullo told The Citizen before a show in 2017. Its members, who were longtime friends but performed in different bands, dressed up in '80s clothing to cover music by Motley Crue and other hair metal acts prominent at that time.

After New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio announced that proof of vaccine will be required for indoor settings, McCain denounced the idea, labeling it as racist and a just cause for civil unrest.
