Radiating Selena-esque vibes, Kali Uchis recently took to the stage at Rams Head Live, and she started her show with “Speed,” “Rush,” and my personal favorite “Nuestra Planeta” (which translates to “Our Planet” in English).

There is nothing subtle about Ministry. From the start of their show at Rams Head Live in Baltimore on Monday, frontman Al Jourgensen and his motley crew took straight aim at President Donald Trump with songs from new album AmeriKKKant, released in March via Nuclear Blast. The resulting 15 songs of industrial metal satisfied the black-clad crowd in attendance to seek a salve to unspoken wounds.
