    You've seen Holy Fuck before, but Friday at Le Poisson Rouge was a bit different. For one thing, it was dark, and I don't know about you, but I've always preferred live shows that way. The lights and staging are more dramatic, and the musicians a bit braver. The darkness gives bands an added layer of mystery to play around with. It was perfect for Holy F-ck, who plugged and played doodads and whatnots atop a new light-up runway that syncopated with the bass drum. Their energy was good, and the show was great all things considered.







    My only complaint about the show was the encore. I'd appreciate it if bands just dove through their sets instead of pretending to walking off in what has become a predictable fit of narcissism. The chant was more fun than most ("Holy F-ck! Holy F-ck!"), but please: you guys are better than that.

    Either that, or maybe I'm just getting old. -Chris Gayomali
