It's highly likely folks would be drawn to the Bloody Beetroots' set even if this weren't their first American show. But it is, and that makes the draw all the more magnetic. Yeah, we know these Italians have stormed our shores before, yet they never did so like they will this time. For Ultra, they're tagged "the Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77" and beefed up by drummer Edward Grinch. The Venom-masked men who seem to score the soundtrack for all of our darker selves should shake the night into a beautiful oblivion. And isn't that what it's all about anyhow?
New Times has previously described him as "a live dance music act that performs in the DJ booth." Translation: Miami-based electro-thrasher Panic Bomber is kind of counteracting the sad fact that live bands don't go down so much in clubs anymore. He's also amply illustrating the irony of his act. Onstage, and backed by a gang of like-minded maniacs, Panic Bomber (born Richard Haig) will undoubtedly counteract anything else you care to mention. With a new EP, Discipline, to hawk, and a manifesto to hang on every lamppost, Panic Bomber might just counteract the live act itself and in so doing bring it to new heights.
