Concert Round-up

Filed under: Music Scene — Queenkv October 26, 2005 @ 12:24 pm

My honey and I saw a bunch of concerts this fall and summer. Here ‘s a round-up of the shows.


I heard about this Dead Can Dance concert during KCRW’s fundraiser. Mark’s a fan of their global/electronica/heavenly music. This is the first time he saw them live in concert.

“Their first tour in nine years! Dead Can Dance is known as one of the most influential forces in modern music. Blending ethereal gothic pop with textured European folk music, vocalist Lisa Gerrard and guitarist Brendan Perry first began creating hypnotic soundscapes 25 years ago.”
[from the Hollywood Bowl website]

Dead Can Dance sounded sublime. They were backed up by the Hollywood Orchestra and the combination made the music sound enchanting and rich in harmonies.


Lisa Gerrard’s voice floated over their pounding drums – stilling the heart and opening the mind.

Dead Can Dance got people out of their seats and pulsating to the music. It was a hell of an experience.

Nouvelle Vague opened for Dead Can Dance. They’re from France. They did acousitc/lounge covers of rock and punk bands. I enjoyed their version of Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” and Dead Kennedy’s “Too Drunk to Fuck.” Imagine a cute and breathy female voice crooning: “You give me head
It makes it worse
Take out your fuckin’ retainer
Put it in your purse”

Really sweet stuff.

Countdown….

Filed under: Playlists — queenkv October 19, 2005 @ 4:01 pm

I’m trying to fit in a few fill-in DJ shifts at the station….I don’t have much time before I go….but it’s nice to do something on a semi-regular basis. something like doing DJ shifts.

Damn, I’m going to miss LA and Southern California.

I got props from John from the Jazz show. I showed up five minutes before the beginning of the shift and managed to transition into an Underground show with less than a minute to go on his last track. He was impressed.

I got a bit distracted at Rhino Records. The store is about 5 minutes away from the station and I picked up some musical goodies for my hubby. I wonder if they have something like Rhino Records in Topeka…do they?
