I managed to catch my friend GW playing keys for the group Deathline International. They had a gig last night at the Voodoo Lounge in San Jose, which isn’t too far away, so after missing previous opportunities, I finally saw them perform. GW has talked about the group for ages, but I had no idea what to expect from this industrial quartet. Quite simply, they were fantastic! The band had a great energy and Deathline Int’l style reminded me of my favorite groups from way back to my high school days. They dropped in a couple of cover including a great version of “Tainted Love.
The opening act was a solo act, Unwoman that featured Erica Mulkey who sings, while playing cello with Reason backing tracks. I was really enjoying her performance, but she cut her performance a bit short due to technical difficulties with the venue. I ended up getting one of her CDs to listen in more detail to this interesting blend of electronic, acoustic, and voice, and was impressed with her talent. Anyways, I thought it was cool to go out and randomly meet another Reason user Link to Unwoman on MySpace.
