Philadelphia, you rock. Tonight, the second show on our East Coast mini-tour, we played at the “gentleman’s club” Club Risque. Whenever a club tries to put metal bands onto a stage designed specifically for showcasing female private parts, the results can be questionable. But thankfully, Club Risque turned out to be a surprisingly good live music venue.
While there were some dancers there, it was really all about the music and every band brought it. The only actual topless action happened mid-way during our set and our stripper kindly informed us that we were “awesome” and reminded her of “Norwegian death metal”, which I think is a good thing. I was impressed, anyway.
We heard 4 other amazing bands and made some new friends, at a show that we were honored to be a part of. Thanks to Jo Schuftan and SickTrust for pulling out all the stops and getting us onto the bill. We always love playing Philly and can’t wait to be back again.
