12/15/06 Show - Industrial

On this night, we celebrated and remembered the sub-genre of post-punk known as Industrial. The next night, we didn't. I'm not sure what we remembered or celebrated. I'll tell you what we neither remembered nor celebrated: a clown band or clown bands. We saw one of these at the DNA Lounge. The biggest problem with a clown band is that they seem to feel like just being clowns is enough. You see, clowns are funny, scary, tragically absured, hackneyed, etc. And here are some clowns playing instruments and singing and stuff. It's crazy, right? Worth the price of admission, wrong? In the old days, a band could have a gimmick look but that was only the beginning of their creativity. Now it's the end, even when their gimmick is as non-creative as clowns. That alone took all of the creativity juice. Tequila. Not to be confused with psychic juice, which is also tequila.

But we can forever remember the night we remembered industrial music through the mp3 recording of the show below. And I can remember the clown band every night when I sleep, as it has already replaced the giant whale in my recurring nightmares:
