Beats Antique at the Fillmore, 10/27/12


As the lights rose for the encore, multi-instrumentalist David Satori made sure to inform everyone at the Fillmore the importance of voting, and then went on to note that if you weren't planning on taking part in the process then in the very least, you need to start a revolution. The crowd erupted in response to this notion. Immediately following this, five animal dancers came prancing out, welcoming an inflatable squid that took over the whole stage. In the mouth of the squid stood Zoe Jakes fighting, pushing and struggling to break free from the tentacles, all while wearing a horse-head mask and skin tight body suit. This is Beats Antique in its natural habitat.
