Throbbing Gristle live in San Francisco

April 14, 2009 ·

Excuse the off-topic post... I am going to see Throbbing Gristle at the Grand Regency Ballroom on April 23rd (Thursday next week). The show is SOLD OUT but I bought two tickets so I have a spare... If you'd like to go to the concert with me, it's $40 for the second ticket. Here's what the Ann Powers said in the Los Angeles Times:
Throbbing Gristle: Coachella is known for helping reunite alternative-rock elders, but rarely is a returning group as foundational to a style of music as is this English outfit. More than 30 years ago, Throbbing Gristle basically invented industrial music, melding synthesizer music with found sound and provocative, sometimes repulsive imagery to push punk into its darkest future. Its members continued to shape the genre in groups such as Psychic TV and Chris & Cosey, but this return to the source allows fans to participate in a collaboration that's essential and consistently inventive.
Here's what the TG website says about the San Francisco gig:
THURSDAY 23rd APRIL - SAN FRANCISCO Grand Regency Ballroom - 1290 Sutter St, San Francisco, CA 94109
TG will play one 75 minute set of various material from throughout their history.

Special 'TG USA 2009' merchandising will be on sale, including: all new TG CD album, TG T-shirt specific to this event, TG Tour Enamel Badge, TG Tour Embroidered Patch.

    I'm not a TG fan directly, but I definitely enjoy their impact on industrial as a whole. I wouldn't mind seeing a show if they were closer to the midwest area some time.

    Nice. Throbbing Gristle is on my "to see" list for coachella this year. I'm stoked.

    It's going to be great. Their last show was in 1981, which was also in SF. .

    Sorry Brian, someone pinged me a couple of days ago for that second ticket!
