Kiss Her For Me

Siouxsie Sioux might be one of those names you only associate with late ΄80s nostalgia, but the former Banshees front-woman is anything but a flash in the pan. Throughout her years as the founding member of the hard-to-peg rock band, Siouxsie became sort of like the godmother to Gothic music, inspiring everyone from the Cure to the Smiths. Her side projects, like the Creatures with her one-time husband and Banshee member, Budgie, were critically acclaimed cult hits, and her solo album, released only last year after nearly 30 years in the business, has been hugely successful, especially in the UK. Tonight, Foundation Fridays will hold a tribute to Siouxsie, complete with a heavy lineup of Sioux-crafted tracks from the her time in the Banshees and the Creatures, as well as tangential listens from the likes of the Glove, the side project of Banshee Steve Severin and the Cure’s Robert Smith. There’s no cover at all, and dancers looking to kick back at the bar can get their hands on $2 Yuenglings all night (An aside: With the sale of Budweiser to Belgian company InBev this year, Yuengling is now one of the two largest American-owned beer brands, the other being Sam Adams. Both are far superior to Bud — let the Belgians keep it!). Anyway, get your tribute on at 9 p.m. at Respectable Street (518 W. Clematis Blvd., West Palm Beach). Visit
Fri., Sept. 5, 9 p.m., 2008
