Strangelove-The Depeche Mode Experience To call Strangelove a cover band would completely diminish their skill and on-stage performance.  They are much more than that, in so much as I completely forgot that I was watching someone else singing a majority of my favorite songs from the last few decades.  Being at the front of the stage […]

Josie Pace | New Industrial Goddess

Ever since seeing a short expose on DetroitPerforms.org of Josie Pace, I was not going to pass up an opportunity to catch her live at a local venue.  Whatever it took, wherever it was, I was going to be stealing pixels!  Thanks to Small’s Hamtramck, I didn’t have to wait very long.  (This was only their […]
