Clown Cult: Insane Clown Posse, Kottonmouth Kings, Coolio, Kittie @ The Warfield, 6/5/10

I was chatting with a friend of mine at a show on Monday, asking him what he had coming up this week. When he mentioned Insane Clown Posse, I wrinkled my nose. He proceeded to tell me about their live show, and in my partially inebriated state, I became intrigued. One thing led to another, […]

Confessions of a Casual FNM Fan: Faith No More, White Trash Debutantes, Neil Hamburger, and the El Camino High School Cheerleaders @ The Warfield, 4/14/10

I went to this show afraid. Very, very afraid. I’ve always heard people talk about Faith No More, and Mike Patton in particular, with a certain tone in their voice, a particular look in their eyes. For people who know music- live music- this is one of those bands. The kind that resemble a religion, […]

I Don't Wanna Live Forever ~ Motörhead @ The Warfield, 10/5/09

There was something about going to a Motörhead show that inspired me to dress up a bit. So, I dusted off my skull-n-bones flashy cowboy boots, pulled out the bandana, and put on my six shooter tank top and necklace. I had neglected to think about the fact that my walk to The Warfield up […]

Mini Review: Marilyn Manson, September Mourning @ The Warfield, 8/28/09

The last time I saw Manson at The Warfield, it was epic affair. In the past 2 months, I’ve somehow managed to see Manson 4 times. Since this fourth show fell in between my final NIN shows, I had been referring to it as a Manson sandwich; to which everyone collectively replied “ewww!”. But, hey, […]

The Prodigy Packs a Punch, with Tenderlions @ The Warfield, 5/28/09

When I was getting over grunge, I spent about a year engrossed in the club kid scene in Austin in the mid nineties. Prodigy’s Fat of the Land had just released, and it bridged the gap between my industrial roots in NIN and Manson, and the dance/trance Keoki style music that accompanied a couple of […]

The Decemberists @ The Warfield, 11/25/08

“You’d better hurry, they just went on stage!” It’s 9pm, which seems early to me, but apparently The Decemberists don’t run on rock ‘n roll time. It’s night two of my manfriend’s indie rock run, and while I am familiar enough with ‘The Engine Driver’ to know that it makes me very sad, I do […]

The Faint, Dr. Dooom, Natalie Portman's Shaved Head @ The Warfield, 11/8/08

Here I am, at Faint show #4 for the year. I missed seeing Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head a couple months ago at Bottom of the Hill, and the last issue of Spin rubbed that in my face. I think they’ve got a good thing going. They’re definitely much better than the openers for The Faint […]

The Dandy Warhols @ The Warfield, 10/4/08

I’m running on rock ‘n roll time tonight, and when I arrive at The Warfield I know that the empty hall means that the band is already on. I make my way through the crowd to my usual spot, and am shocked once I reach the floor. It’s roomy down here. Come to find out, […]

Rancid, The Adolescents @ The Warfield, 9/26/08

Last night I was an outcast. I didn’t grow up with this music. Unlike 99% of the people there, I didn’t know every word, where the fist pumps go, where to say ‘hey!’. My outfit wasn’t entirely right either. But, I had always heard that Rancid puts on killer shows and have amazing fans; so […]

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds @ The Warfield, 9/19/08

Last night, at the newly reopened Warfield, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds brought their black magic post punk rock to a willing and ready audience. It was my first time to see Nick Cave, and I was expecting an enigmatic performance. It was that and so much more. Cave crooned and the audience swooned, […]
