Watch: Failures (Live @ Dudefest)

So, I’ve been talking about the band Failures a lot in my recent posts, and I figured that if you haven’t really heard of them then it didn’t really make much sense to keep comparing bands to them. So, here is some live footage of them at the 2010 installment of dudefest:

Migrate Music Show Review: KMFDM

I had the chance to see KMFDM last night, Sunday August 21, 2011, at Radiodown in Covington, Kentucky. For those of you who are unaware, KMFDM is an industrial rock band that formed in Paris, France in 1984. The show was absolutely amazing. You can definitely tell that the group has been around the block a few times and they definitely know what they are doing. They played for an hour and a half and there was not one dull moment the entire time. They feature a line-up of two guitar players, two synth players and a drummer. With only two shows left in the US on this tour (August 24 in Salt Lake City, Utah at the complex; August 25 in Boise Idaho at the Knitting Factory) I’m glad I was able to catch the spectacle before they headed back to Europe. If you’ve never heard them before, check out the music video below:
