Yes, once again an extremely late show review from I, Sacklunch. I was even prodded long with the following image:
It's true. I do have a side job dancing at numerous ALL MALE NUDE strip clubs up and down the Mid-Atlantic and it often interferes with the timeliness of my posts. Anyway, on to the "review".
We were all really here to see Holy Fuck after their excellent performance opening for Super Furry Animals. Once again they did not disappoint. We all parked ourselves close to the stage, on the right hand side. I believe this to be the prime viewing spot for shows at the RNR Hotel (along with our special balcony spot at the 930 Club, the risers at the BC Backstage, and the short riser stage right at the BC Mainstage) . The 35 minute set was pretty similar to the last time we saw them and the crowd seemed to fully enjoy every minute. Again, I am not a huge fan of live electronic music, but for some reason these guys bring the noise and energy that translates into an excellent live show. They have a great rhythm section, with a bassist that looks like he would be just as comfortable in a metal band. Other things to point out include a weird ticker tape type device that produce noise, lots of effects pedals, the playing of an instrument with a butter knife, and lots of cool looking old school Casio keyboards. Oh yeah, the drummer played barefoot.
