I’ve been a fan of the stuff that Wednesday 13 has been doing since I first heard the album “Fang Bang” and in case you didn’t realize this, that particular album recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. I discussed this as one of my “Milestone” posts and you can reflect upon its Horror Punk awesomeness on THIS LINK. It’s been a few years since I’ve caught Mr. 13 in concert and I think that last time was in 2013 in this very room. The show tonight was supposed to be upstairs in the roomier Marlin Room but one of the support acts needed to use the space as they were performing in the grand ballroom since down here was going to be too tight. I made sure to get to the club in time to catch everyone since I liked the whole setup this evening. Here is how the show went for those that couldn’t join in on the fun.
Candy Brain: I’m going to say that this is the second time that I’ve caught Candy Brain in concert and as far as an Independent Gothic Pop project I rather like them. They are fronted by Bunny who used to do a little keyboard for them and she has a whole Wednesday Addams appeal to her. Chelsea plays the bass while Anton plays guitar. There is no drummer and the band performed to programmed tracks. This aspect takes a little bit away from the “looseness” of the band and the ability to be more free form during a set but it seems to work for them. The crowd this evening seemed to enjoy what was going on up on the stage and immediately afterward the band was hanging around the venue and the merchandise booth. Yeah, they are considered “the local act” on the bill but they handled themselves well and that makes me sad to announce that this was their very last gig for the foreseeable future. They have a CD and a cool button available so hit their Facebook Page and order one up and demand that they return sooner than later. Now it was time for Echo Black.
