Adorned with memorabilia of some of the world’s most famous musicians, the rock hot-spot Whisky a Go Go hosted a performance by industrial rock band Davey Suicide. Having taken Hollywood by storm, Davey Suicide’s rising success is very apparent, as there was a multitude of fans who waited patiently in line on the Sunset Strip while wearing Davey Suicide shirts. With the release of the band’s debut album, Davey Suicide set out on yet another tour, this time supporting Vampires Everywhere and Orgy on the “Wide Awake and Dead Tour.”
This was the final leg of the tour, and despite being quite tired, the band put on a killer performance and really pumped up the energy in the venue. Easily recognized by each member’s unique appearance, the crowd excitedly screamed when the lights dimmed and the first note was played. Davey enjoys being up close to the audience, and he always makes a point to interact with the fans. Needlz rocked it out on the keyboard, flanked by a talented Frankie on bass. The two newest bandmates, drummer Drayven and guitarist Ashes, both, seemed to fit right into this lively group.
The show closed with ladies dancing up on stage and a satirical blow-up doll being tossed around on stage, immensely amusing the crowd. Able to stand on its own, Davey Suicide is set to embark on a headlining tour in the fall. Davey Suicide can be found online at www.daveysuicide.com.
