Hanzel und Gretyl

Last week I went to see Hanzel und Gretyl, a cool industrial band from Germany.  If you have never heard of them and you like this type of music, be sure to check them out.  I also saw them the last time they were in Seattle.  It was a really fun show.  I love their costumes and Hanzel really gets into the performance.  He gets right in your face with his guitar and even tried to crowd surf a few times.  The first time they basically dropped him on the stage and nearly hurt him, and made him lose his wireless connector for his guitar several times.  Anyhow, it was fun to see them closer up this time and of course it was great to see them again after so long.  Unfortunately none of my photos came out this time – they were all too blury. 😦

Nitzer Ebb

Man have I just been letting the old blog go.  It’s been a while since I bothered to update what I’ve been up to, so here’s to trying to be more consistent. 🙂
 
Ok, so last weekend I went to a see a favorite 80s/90s industrial band of mine, Nitzer Ebb, that I always wanted to see, but never got the chance to until now.  A few local groups opened for them, one called Legion Within and the other called God Module.  I liked Legion Within although their music seemed a bit like a rip off of Bauhaus.  I felt bad for the lead singer however as he had to perform with a broken leg (with crutches), but the music was good.  I was not a fan of God Module.  Their rhythms weren’t bad but their image and their singing was lame.  The lead singer is this really huge, scary looking guy and sounding even worse with his screaming voice over a very rough synthesizer.  Another band member took turns singing, using the same synthesized voice, and his gimic was wearing tape as a shirt.  Interesting attempt to be cool, but to me they came off as ridiculous and trying too hard.  Anyhow, Nitzer Ebb came on afterwards and really rocked the place.  They performed a ton of their greatest hits and the crowd was really into it.  It was definitely due to the great showmanship of the lead singer who had his stage presence down.  I guess that should be expected for someone who’s been doing this so long.  Anyhow, it was a great show and it was even better getting to see them in such an intimate setting, with a moderate sized crowd at El Corazon.  I was right up front where I like to be.  Whoohoo! Sorry, no photos – the lighting wasn’t great and I couldn’t get a decent shot with the singer moving around the stage and dancing so much.
