Lissie was born a rocker. Before she released her first album, To Catch a Tiger, she toured as the opening as the opening act for Lenny Kravitz. She caught fire early, landing songs on The O.C., Veronica Mars, and House, and that was before she’d even moved to Los Angeles. But as her career progressed, she’s moved toward increasingly bare, stripped-down arrangements. And that’s what she brought to City Winery DC recently.

Ministry found themselves in Brooklyn recently to celebrate the Chicago-based independent record store/label Wax Trax! Records — and to celebrate the release of the documentary film about the store/label, Industrial Accident: The Story of Wax Trax! Records.

“Holy shit!!! What the fuck is this?!? Some kind of funky electronic heavy metal punk rock? This is the strangest music I have ever heard. I either hate this shit or this is my new favorite band. And what the hell is on the cover of the album?!?.”
You can ask yourself the same questions that 12-year-old me asked when you see Ministry perform their classic material at a Wax Trax! reunion show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on Monday, April 15.

The timing of the Sisters of Strawberry Moon Tour seems a little odd. The supergroup’s album, Solstice, doesn’t come out until two days after they finished their tour recently at City Winery DC. But supergroups have fickle natures.
