Skinny Puppy at The Pageant – December 8th, 2014

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This was a show I went into not knowing a damn thing about the band.  Below are a list of things that I learned after this experience.

  1. The band formed in 1982 and their first release came out in 1984…I am one year older than the amount of years they have been in the business.
  2. They fit in the genre of “industrial” music and are known as the founders of “electro-industrial” music.
  3. The crowd consisted of those you’d consider gothic, a “juggalo”, or middle-aged.  One thing was clear though, everyone there was into them and new their shit about the band.
  4. The lighting was challenging from a photography standpoint, but absolutely fascinating from a crowd perspective.
  5. There is a lot of theatrics involved with the vocalist going through many wardrobe changes or almost “reformations”.  There is also a person in a hazmat suit following him around to inject him throughout the set.

If you are looking for some bumping electronic bass beats at a concert with more of an act involved, making it more like a real show, then you should defiantly check the iconic Skinny Puppy’s out.
