On Thursday October 19th, 2017, Lords of Acid brought the “Sextreme Fest 17’ to the Vinyl Music Hall.

Opening the tour was Wiccid, an electro-industrial synth-pop/Futurepop project from Sacramento featuring Erie Loch and Crash. Next to the stage was En Esch,who is a skilled multi-instrumentalist, programmer and composer that you may know from his enjoyed success with KMFDM and the diverse ensemble PIGFACE since the early 90s.

Third to the stage was Christian Death, who originally formed in Los Angeles,and currently resides in London. The band has also been dubbed the “Founding fathers of American goth rock.”

Combichrist absolutely pumped up the entire venue with their heavy and intense beats, dynamic front man Andy LaPlegua, and antic inducing drummer Jo Letz.

Lords of Acid headlined the evening, with 7 members on stage, being led by DJ Mea. The group brought an intense and powerful show full of shock value and witty lyrics.

Photographer. Music Nerd. Artist.

Hi! I’m Kristina, Kris for short. I’ve pretty much had a camera in my hand since I was old enough to press a shutter, and loved music for as long as I can remember. I always knew I wanted to do something with both art forms, but learned early on that I was absolute trash at playing anything. I can call out what instrument I hear being played, but I have no idea how to create the sound.

Ergo, transition into concert photography. In 2010, I took a leap of faith and put my efforts to work, and wrote my first press request. The first band I ever shot was the Misfits, by a stroke of luck. After about two years, I got lucky again and was asked if I’d like to interview a band as well as cover the show, making Ballyhoo my very first interview. I have had some of the most incredible experiences doing this, including traveling to cover festivals with unheard artists, and bands that I’ve loved my whole life.

I look forward to being able to cover and listen to more incredible bands with The Patchchord News, and I hope you all enjoy the experience as much as I do.
