On the road to stump for their latest album Spooky Music, the Thrill Kill Kult is back again paying a visit to historic old Portland.

Originally from Chicago, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult is back in Portland, Oregon on tour with their latest album Spooky Tricks with special guests [DJ] Toxic Rainbow and Adrian H and the Wounds playing to a packed Dantes nightclub.

Opening the evening was a new favorite to me from Portland, Adrian H and the Wounds. If Tom Waits and Nevik Ogre had spawned a son, Adrian H would be he. The cleverly written lyrics behind the haunting stories add a new tone to Dark Sexy!

Adrian H and the wounds are Adrian H (Keys and vocals), Shiggy (Bass), Kelby Patterson (Keys). Their highly anticipated album is set to be released this 2014 on the Cleopatra label. Their show this evening was comprised mostly of this album and I have to be honest here, I can’t wait to pick up a copy.

Setlist:
Pipe
That Hurts
Dancir
Cookies and Cocaine
Dogs and Rats
Memory
Girl with Special K
Border
Royals (Lorde cover)

[DJ] Toxic Rainbow, voted as Best club DJ multiple times in Santa Cruz local weekly publications and would be best known for his ever-changing production, got the floor shaking with all the dancing that seemed to break out simultaneously after the lights went on. Having been inspired by the band since the age of 14, Toxic Rainbow has had the honor of remixing MLWTTKK’s classic production Kooler Than Jesus in 2013, including a remix on MLWTTKK’s new album Room On The Moon.

Currently residing in Veracruz, México, [DJ] Toxic Rainbow has returned to the US on tour supporting one of his teenage inspirations. Be sure to catch his performance DJing as they come your way.

Los Angeles based via Chicago, Groovie Mann and Buzz McCoy have delivered the goods to the Industrial music scene since the late 1980’s when they met on tour with Ministry. These veterans of the genre, Groovie Mann (Frankie Nardiello) and Buzz McCoy (Marston Daley) remain the two constant members of MLWTTKK. Members on this tour: Mimi Star (bass), Justin Thyme (drums), and Westin Halvorson (guitar). If you have yet to experience a performance, I recommend that you do. I’ve seen them six times throughout my music career and they have always been crowd pleaser’s attracting a constant fan base with each new album.
