Throbbing Gristle live in San Francisco
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.
