I saw Peaches a few years ago on one of those electroclash tours. She came out wearing a long, blond wig & stripper heels, and the crowd, somewhat nonplussed, not for sure it was her, went into paroxysms when midway through a synth intro line she ripped off the wig & shook out her brown curls with a sneer.
Peaches is not a show to be missed. Plus former LA Metblogs author & Buddyhead creator Travis Keller will be DJing there.
Wanna win tickets? Don’t be shy. Tell me your favorite Peaches lyric in the comments. And if they don’t get past our obscenity filters, I’ll make sure to unmoderate them so you all can see those nasty, nasty lyrics.
Info on the show is here. FYI, she plays two shows: one on the 6th, a 2nd on the 7th. These tickets are for the second date, Sunday.
this Friday on the 18th, Ghostland Observatory (myspace) (quite possibly one of the coolest band names in recent memory) brings their bombastic, spastic rock-god twosome selves to the Fonda along with bLA alum & Buddyhead Records co-founder DJ Travis Keller (he’s an awesome photog too). Pardon me for saying so, but this may be one of the sexiest shows to go down in LA in a long-ass time. If you love a good rock show, I advise you to secure tix immediately, get your fine selves to the show, sing, dance & drop your pants. Enjoy some cocktails, because we all know it’s not a party until someone gets a head wound (as I can attest).
Wanna go? Too broke from your glamorous rock star lifestyle to buy tickets? Too drunk to type your credit card into the ticketmaster website? No problem! We’ve got several pairs to give away. Add a comment below telling me what YOU think is the best band name EVAR. It can be a real band or one you made up. Our panel of seasoned professionals will consult, debate, & decide upon a winner by Thursday. Make sure to leave your real email, so I can contact you & get your full name (to put on the Goldenvoice list) if you win: I’ve dealt with way too many idiots who enter to win & then leave me a fake name and a bogus email addy. Way to go, buddy.
