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

up the same way. Praga Khan will be the only original member. And Lacey Conner, known mostly as the bitch/badass from Rock of Love,

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.
