it’s only one gig but it shall be a SWEET, SWEET gig nonetheless! our other all-time fave (next to the giraffes) is detroit’s mighty, mighty (what’s with all the doubled words..?) ELECTRIC SIX. you might know them from ‘gay bar’ or ‘danger! high voltage’ or you might not know them at all, but now’s a good time. to know them, that is.
Key Words: Justin Bieber, Robert Pattinson, Glenn Beck, Lady GaGa, Louis Pasteur, You. If you’ve ever attempted to continue living on planet Earth in our lifetime, you understand full well that there are many forces acting against you. The forces acting against you are oppressive, like the humid march of days. These forces like to play with things before they destroy them. You are being destroyed by forces. You.
You should by now also understand there are two forces working on your behalf. The only reason you still have a fighting chance are Detroit’s premier over-21 band Electric Six… and the benevolent violence and magnetic gravitational pulses of the stars, planets and moons in the cosmos.
the band is playing brooklyn’s THE BELL HOUSE this thursday, june 2nd with township & les sans culottes (we saw the latter on one of e6′s summer concert cruises – they were pretty french.. and pretty awesome!). electric six is currently touring on the truckload of juicy material they’ve amassed over the years since their debut, 2003′s fire – count ‘em: señor smoke, switzerland, i shall exterminate everything around me that restricts me from being the master, flashy, KILL, andddd finally, the most recent, zodiac (whew!).
check out some quick clips from the last time electric six came to town (in september @ bowery ballroom) below & after the jump!
