My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult at the Bluebird Theater, with Left Spine Down, 9/19/12


It comes as a bit of a shock when people slam into you for the first time after a dozen songs. That's exactly what happened last night when My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult dialed up "After the Flesh." From the start of the sample and the beat, everyone recognized the song immediately and reacted with crazed abandon. It was the only time in the show when things got a little gnarly down front. That track is one of the most aggressive tracks in the act's repertoire, so that's probably why.
