blaqk audio/AFI…bands and side projects

AFI…..the band I should like but never much got into…has some members that have a passion for new wave. So, they’ve branched off and started their own noveau new wave band, blaqk audio. While at first Stiff Kittens sounds very catchy (and very Depeche Mode, it resonates in my head as the same overproduced manufactured […]

M.I.A. at the Rickshaw? Really? Did I read that wrong?? Could I possible score another hot ticket, making that two super exclusive shows in one week (the other being The Smashing Pumpkins)?

No man dresses, guitar smashes, or stage dives. These audio tapes are probably more intimate than any video that exists- it will […]

Depeche Mode: 101

Depeche Mode is just one of those bands that has never really waned in success- they’ve never had a shit album, a bad tour, or an embarrassing bad press moment. And what a documentary- to be a fan in the late ’80s and win a contest to travel around on a bus and go to […]

myspace find: psyclon nine

I’m having a bit of trouble believing that these guys are from SF. I’m constantly bitching about the lack of live industrial music here- not to mention the lack of it in the club scene.
