Kylesa, Black Breath and Victims Live in London

9 Feb

Laura Pleasants, that is all gentlemen, that is all...

Wooooh yeah, motherfuckeys! I’ve just bought tickets to Kylesa for later this month and Black Breath and Victims in April. I think my head might just explode at the sheer awesomeness I am in for.

Kylesa are playing with KEN Mode, who should be pretty decent if last year’s Venerable is any indication, at theO2 Academy Islington on February 23rd. There are still tickets left if you want them. Only 11 squid plus a ridiculous booking fee of almost four English pounds.

Black Breath and Victims are set to obliterate Camden’s Underworld on April 2 for a cheeky £12. I keep pinching myself that the two bands are on the same bill. As Shakespeare once said, FUCK YEAH!

Here is some classic Kylesa to remind you how fantastic they are:

    Holy crap. That’s a lot of D-beat. You might die.

      I’d die happy.

    Whoah, Laura Pleasants looks bad there. I have a poster of her from Terrorizer, and she looks healthy in it. There, she looks like she’s lost a lot of weight, and definitely not in a healthy way (she’s looking almost “heroin chic”, as they used to say). Maybe I wouldn’t have noticed such a thing if it was a male musician . . . so maybe I’m being sexist. But she doesn’t look healthy.

    @FMA – I’m not sure she’s capable of looking bad! In all seriousness though, I think it’s just the angle as in the most recent videos on their YouTube channel, she looks fine.

    As for whether it’s sexist to mention Laura’s appearance – well, we are human and we respond to performance artists on different levels, including the visual and particularly if the artist is of the gender to which we sexually attracted, male or female.

    I am not ashamed to say that I think she is very attractive due to a combination of looks, talent and stage presence.

    I think it only becomes sexist if you focus on a female artist’s looks ahead of their creative output.

      “I think it only becomes sexist if you focus on a female artist’s looks ahead of their creative output.”

      I wouldn’t do that. There is no question of their creative output, and in fact, Spiral Shadow has slowly become my favorite from them.

        Spiral Shadow is definitely a grower and probably just about edges out Static Tensions as my favourite from them. It’s just got that bit more depth and detail to the sound, as well as more interesting dynamics.

    I’ve got a ticket to see Kylesa supported by Circle Takes The Square in Leeds next week! Hope this means there’s new Kylesa stuff on the way!

      Awesome! Circle Takes The Square are on the bill in London too but I don’t know much about them. I hear that new Kylesa material is in the pipeline so I’m hoping we get a preview.
