HF’s Cats Watching Cats (*VOTE*)

15th Nov 10 (Mon) Leave a comment

Canadian live electronic gurus Holy Fuck had a contest… photograph your cat watching their wicked-good video for “Red Lights.”  Well, the semi-finalists are in and it’s up to YOU to vote on your favorite (HF’s Facebook photo album link).  There are some cute ones over there.  Deadline for votes is Friday, November 19th.

My favorite photo didn’t make the cut… mainly due to the breedist folks over at “HFHQ”. ;)

OK, Turtle (my 5-year old pekinese poodle) didn’t technically fit the bill for “cats watching cats.”  Maybe next time…

REVIEW: Holy F*ck & Indian Jewelry @ Holocene (Portland, OR – 10/14/10)

15th Oct 10 (Fri) 4 comments

FYI… PHOTOS of the SHOW at the BOTTOM

First off… if you haven’t seen the adorable and infectious new music video for Holy Fuck‘s “Red Lights,” you need to go check it out now.  OK, now that you’re back, on to the review…

This was the first time to the Holocene for me.  It’s a nice venue, trendy looking bar, good beer on tap (Double Mountain IRA for me).  They had a few side rooms with colorful lights, practically unusable mirrors in the bathroom, and odd fabric or paper christmas tree looking things in the performance area.  In other words, everything that makes Portland its quirky, trendy self.

I got there near the middle of the first opener’s set.  Clipd Beaks, from Oakland, were good from what I heard.  Fuzzy rock with somewhat melodic vocals, use of trumpet, but primarily traditional rock sounds coming forth.  I didn’t get any usable photos from their set as the lights were in force, yet.

Next up was Indian Jewelry, a four-piece from Houston, put out a 40 minute blast of tom percussion, dirty guitars and keyboards.  They were a little warbly, drone-y in spots, and switched off between male and female vocalists.  I enjoyed them, but I couldn’t really “re-sing” any of their songs… nice and percussive, genre-less but not aimless.  I can see them working way better live than on record, but then again, I’ve been wrong about that before.  Anyway, I’d recommend checking them out if they swing by your neck of the woods… cracked cymbals and all.

Holy Fuck started setting up immediately after Indian Jewelry’s set ended.  They went on right around 11:30 and played a full hour, with encore.  Not dissimilar from their Mississippi Studios show from earlier in the year… lots of tunes from Latin – which I am legally required to state in every mention of its name… it’s the best album of 2010 so far.  Great groove-based live/organic electronic.

There were a few absent fab live tunes (Royal Gregory, Super Inuit, Milkshake), and I think I’m going crazy, as now I’m doubting my own note-taking… did they end with Lovely Allen?  Or was it Safari?  Or am I going crazy?  Anyway… they played Red Lights, which smoked!  I love Punchy’s bass on that track…

Setlist: about an hour

  • 1MD
  • Super Inuit
  • Foxy
  • Jungles
  • Red Lights
  • Lucky
  • Stay Lit
  • Silva & Grimes
  • Stilettos
  • Encore: The Pulse
  • Lovely Allen (I should know this with confidence, but my brain fell apart)
    italics – unsure of in the setlist, any help is appreciated

Great show as usual from Holy Fuck.  But… severe lack of dancing again… or at least in comparison to the grooves.  This seems to happen (i.e.- not happen) in Portland; so I don’t blame the band at all.  They should swing down to Eugene next time… we’ll show ’em how to party!  Pretty please!
