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.
- 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.
- They fit in the genre of “industrial” music and are known as the founders of “electro-industrial” music.
- 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.
- The lighting was challenging from a photography standpoint, but absolutely fascinating from a crowd perspective.
- 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.
