Tonight! Lords of Acid and Thrill Kill Kult Heat Up Culture Room
Sex is fun. Mix it with some dense, pulsating electronica and comical
lyrics and sex becomes one hell of a party. But not just anyone can keep
such a party from devolving into some half-ass gathering of the Hot
Topic-attired. This is where we usher in freaky-deaky acid-housers Lords
of Acid. A group that garnered a cult following with its 1991 rave
debut, the classic techno-raunch album Lust, LOA usually appeals
to the platform-shod, black-clad, liberal-minded set yet still offers
an opportunity for the rest of us -- even those of us who enjoy color --
to dance, grind, mosh, and, if the moment is right, get naked. But don't
hold your breath. (No, we're not talking autoerotic asphyxiation.)
Lords of Acid fans have aged. The band hasn't toured in about eight
years, and it's anybody's guess whether the new generation will sex it
will step in as the female vocalist. So it's also up in the air whether
the current lineup will be able to please old-school fans.
Lords of Acid, with Thrill Kill Kult, Blownload, and DJ Deathwish. 8
p.m. Thursday, August 5, at Culture Room, 3045 N. Federal Highway, Fort
Lauderdale. Tickets cost $19.99. Call 954-564-1074, or click here.
