Ladytron < The Faint @ The Fillmore, 4/29/09

It was the first night of The Faint and Ladytron’s two night mini residency at The Fillmore. As co-headliners, each band would take a turn closing (imagine that!). Guess which night I picked? The Faint’s closing night, because I just like them like that. It was to be my first time seeing Ladytron. I’ve skipped […]

Autolux Rattled Eardrums @ GAMH, 4/25/09

My ears are still ringing. Last time I saw Autolux was a Noise Pop show in 2007 at The Independent. Their set was cut short due to some fried amps or something. I had to ditch my ticket at the last minute when they came around last year. This time, I wasn’t missing it. Autolux […]

A theatrical, high energy experience, their current tour is a must see. Fischerspooner’s third album, the somewhat generically titled Entertainment, is a more mellowed out version of their style. ‘The Best Revenge’ starts the […]

Record Recap: IAMX ~ Kingdom of Welcome Addiction

Kingdom of Welcome Addiction is the third album from Chris Corner’s IAMX. While the album stays consistent with past efforts in terms of its danceable qualities, […]

Throbbing Gristle Was Tough to Swallow @ The Grand, 4/23/09

The show sold out almost immediately. Anyone who calls themselves an industrial fan has at least heard of Throbbing Gristle. But they’ve been so dormant for so long that my motivation for buying tickets were more about knowing I should be there than necessarily being a fan of the music. I decided to watch this […]

Zia from the Dandys joins BJM for 'Not If You Were the Last Dandy on Earth' at Coachella

Zia from The Dandy Warhols- who has commented on my review of their set before- joined Brian Jonestown Massacre during the song ‘Not If You Were the Last Dandy on Earth’ for ultimate irony. Very cool. Read my recent review of a well behaved BJM here, and a older review of a not so well […]
