Vocalist Arrow de Wilde sang, trashed, and crawled around stage as if utterly possessed. Indeed, the spirit of rock n’ roll lives on inside her band Starcrawler, and the four Los Angeles punks struck like glam lightning in an opening set for The Distillers at 9:30 Club recently.
Starcrawler performs at DC9 on Feb. 17, 2018.
Three members of Starcrawler began rocking out to “Castaway” to open their show at DC9 on Saturday.
Moments later, frontwoman Arrow de Wilde, disheveled and wild-eyed, bound to the stage and immediately appeared to go through some sort of painful withdrawal. She contorted her face, and she scratched all over her body.
She honestly rather seemed to be in a great deal of distress, too distracted by the grip of invisible demons to perform properly, much less stand.
