.357 Lover is an arena rock/glam rock band originally from Denton, TX. Moving to NYC, they became a backing band for both John Cameron Mitchell of Hedwig and Andrew WK, respectively. In addition to supporting Andrew WK, they’ve supported They Might Be Giants and Ben Folds. At the Ars Nova Theater, they staged the rock opera Alice Wakeman and are planning to do it again.
