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 second live show…ever…) Bonus points for opening act Ghost|Synthesis, another artist I have been jonesin’ to catch locally. One night… two new artists (to me, that is)… an intimate venue… a few PBRs… perfect.
If you are up for a phenominal voice reaching out from a stellar industrial-vibe provided by Ken Roberts (keyboards/synth) and Mark Damian (drums), mixed with a stage presence that says “…this is what I have to say…“, then catch a show if you can or find them on the web. With top-notch videos already under their belts, a serious eye for fashion and visuals, Josie Pace is Detroit industrial punk eye-candy with a stainless steel ice pick heading for your ears!
While I wanted to steal Jeff Rebrovich/Ghost|Synthesis‘ pixels as well, photos would do absolutely no justice what-so-ever. He is a visually-overloading, aurally-captivating presence that deserves your full attention… or at least a really hi-end video camera. Next time. Definitely next time.
Thank you, Josie/Ken/Mark. Thank you, Jeff/G|S. I hope you enjoy the gallery…
