From the 2010 European tour of Faith and the Muse
Tickets for the show are available for $10 in advance (plus indietickets' $2.50 fee online) or $15 at the door. This is an 18+ event, beginning at 10 pm.
Ground Zero is a great space for this show, but do bring cash! They don't accept plastic. There are two banks nearby with ATMs.
Mercy Kill is a local project, a side-project of Apocalypse Theater members. You can hear some of Apox here -- they're strange talented folks with a very visual form of performance. Expect electronic effects, metal, lingerie and guitars.
Autumn is another local project, and this is officially a reunion gig for them. Not to be missed, in my opinion! True gothic rock; guitars, pedals, sweet sad vox. Good for shoe gazing and swirling. Very good. An excellent match for the headliner...
Faith and the Muse is a duo, William Faith (of Christian Death) and Monica Richards (of Strange Boutique) have been performing together since 1993. They have been blending traditional music of several cultures with experimental and electronic music ever since.
:ankoku butoh:, their 5th studio album, is "a CD/DVD/Book with 13 new atavisms for the warrior within." Thematically, the album reflects elements of Shinto and Japanese culture. It spent four weeks on the German Alternative Music Charts recently, and I look forward to getting my hands on it.
