Harlem rapper Dave East, born David Brewster Jr., released Paranoia: A True Story, his debut extended play (EP), last summer via Def Jam Recordings and Mass Appeal Records. He kicks off a tour on Jan. 16 in New York City, and then finds himself at Baltimore Soundstage for a show only a few days later on Jan. 19.
EBM duo Youth Code have been touring as openers for Chelsea Wolfe, and they appeared at Baltimore Soundstage on Oct. 14. Paivi capture Sara Taylor and Ryan George in action on Saturday. (See Paivi’s pictures of Chelsea Wolfe.)
Chelsea Wolfe stopped by Baltimore Soundstage on Saturday after releasing Hiss Spun, her latest album, on Sept. 22 via Sargent House. In her show, Chelsea stuck to themes of doom and gloom, but she did so with her beautiful signature vocals.
Syd (aka Syd Tha Kid), frontwoman and producer for The Internet, released EP Always Never Home on Sept. 7 via Columbia Records. On Tuesday, she visited The Fillmore Silver Spring to play an engaging show, and Chris Castillo was there to take some pix. (By the way, Syd is at Baltimore Soundstage tonight. Go see that show!)
Adam Ant was on fire!
My favorite song by Glam Skanks is one that frontwoman Ali Cat lovingly introduces as a love song. And it certainly starts out as a traditional love song with its throwback ’50s rock ‘n roll vibe and initial cooing.
But before Ali even begins to strut across the stage, the song takes a whimsical turn for the better as she rains scorn down upon her former objet d’affection, proudly proclaiming the title “Fuck Off!” with a storm of hand gestures to emphasize the same.
