2007-08-28the birthday massacre @ petit café campus tonight was the birthday massacre show. i went with rox and fil. it was my first time seeing this band live, after rox introduced me to their music a few years ago.
with no opening act except for dj mr. black spinning a mostly industrial/electro set, the birthday massacre played right away. i must admit that i am not too familiar with their material. but i still had a good time, dancing throughout the whole set.
we got good spots, right in front of the stage. the singer sang into our faces at times, haha. she's cute, like a dark pixie, prancing around on stage. the whole band had lots of energy, playing one song after another, with barely any pauses in-between. that was good, since the crowd was really into the music, dancing non-stop.
rox took some photos:
since i don't really know their songs, it was nice to see the setlist a few feet away from me. here is what i remember:
walking with strangers
kill the light
it would seem that most are from the new album. i will get it, when it comes out in two weeks.
after the show, the band stuck around and chatted with people. a couple of the bandmembers remember rox and fil, from having met them at their previous shows in montreal. they were nice and friendly. but i felt kind of awkward, asking for autographs, and i didn't know what to say to them, other than "awesome show."
cd purchase: i got their debut "nothing & nowhere". i was hoping that maybe they would sell the new album at the merch table, but they didn't.
hearing damage: surprisingly, not much, even though we were standing just in front of the stage. i think the dj set seemed louder...
