When last I saw Little Boots in DC, I recommended Moogfest book the triple threat performer, DJ, and businesswoman, giving her opportunities to sing, spin, and lecture. Last week, she fulfilled part of that destiny with a live concert and a DJ set, crediting Moogfest for inspiring her to “rebuild” a live show after a successful year or so behind the decks.
Industrial quintet My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult brought their unique music to Fish Head Cantina near Baltimore, Maryland, on Saturday on a stop for their 30th anniversary tour. Paivi was there to capture the magic!
Last year, industrial disco outfit My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult celebrated their 30th anniversary. The band continue the celebration this year with a second round of touring to mark 30 years of making music, and they perform locally at Fish Head Cantina in Baltimore on Saturday, April 21.
The year 2017 was a good year for revisiting old friends as they returned to remind us that they truly still “got it.” In the past year, Parklife DC reviewed a great deal of musicians and bands, and the performances that really distinguished themselves often came as something of a pleasant surprise.
Over the past year, Shamir Bailey, who records and performs under his first name, produced two entire albums. The first was a self released 12-track album entitled Hope earlier in the year. It’s filled with raw pop, punk, and even country gems that, according to the Soundcloud description, was written and recorded in a weekend. The second, Revelations, released on Father/Daughter Records, was delivered a mere seven months later in November. Both records are a significant change from the slick production of Ratchet but are more potent both lyrically and sonically than that LP.
