Skunk Anansie

Moving from the Civic Hall to the Wulfrun means that tonights openers, LA’s very own Beware of Darkness, have very little room to put out their brand of sleazy garage rock. Lack of space doesn’t stop frontman Kyle Nicolaides from flying around the stage. Sadly the lighting man forgot to put any lights in the stage so some of the impact is lost but their sound more than makes up for it. Part Whites Stripes, a pinch of the Hives and a hefty dollop of Wolfmother mean that there are enough catchy hooks to keep the crowd entertained. Be sure to catch them when they come back.

Skunk Anansie hit the stage at 1000 mph and don’t let up! Since 1994 they have melted faces and stomped crowds in to submission. Iconic front woman Skin may have gained some hair but has lost now of her aggression and charisma seemingly charming and scaring in equal measure. Between bouncing around the stage and crowd surfing the length of the Wulfrun she doesn’t give up for a single second. Tonight they sound incredible and rip through a set containing songs old and new and its clear why they still have such rapid devoted fans.
