Luminous: The Horrors, Toy @ First Unitarian Church, 5/1/14

It was May Day, and as the sun set on this sizzling day- the kind of day which reminds you that summer is coming- I found myself at church. Is it hot in here or is it just me? I’d never been to this place for a show, but had always wanted to go. The […]

Moving Further Away: The Horrors, The Stepkids @ El Rey, 9/15/11

I had seen the show 48 hours before, but it couldn’t have been more different. The bands were the same. The setlists were the same. The clothes were the same. But that was where it ended. It was my first time at the El Rey, and I fell in love with it immediately. Standing on […]

Slightly Horrified by The Horrors set, w/ The Kills, The Magic Wands @ The Fillmore, 5/19/09

What the fuck was I thinking sandwiching this show into my NIN/JA week! Seriously, though, I was stoked to be seeing The Horrors, and had these tickets before my NIN/JA tickets. They look like mods with a flair of The Ramones, and sound like The Birthday Party…yum. Of course I didn’t know that there was […]
