Semi Precious Weapons is a glam rock group from New York City that was formed in 2004. Most recently, they’ve been spotted on Lady Gaga’s The Monster Ball tour as an opening act. “Put a Diamond in It” is from the Semi Precious Weapons EP.
Front man Justin Tranter is an openly gay man but carries himself androgynously. When I saw the band at Lady Gaga’s concert in December, he looked like a woman. I thought he was a transgendered woman at first but then I realized that he was a gay man in drag. When the band performed, one of the songs I immediately liked was “Put a Diamond in It”. It’s just one of those songs that get you on your feet and make you want to “rock out”. Check out the band performing the song below.
