Springfield, VA, Empire, 06/02/2013
Project Pitchfork, one of the electro/industrial scene’s longest running and most revered acts, continues to make waves with a darkly expressive and gritty audio/visual style. Ayria, on another point on the electro spectrum, garners much acclaim for a ballistic blend of bubblegum pop and gothic flair, topped off by a sleek and aggressive electronics. Together, the two hit the road earlier this year for a blazing tour that demonstrated why both acts are so beloved by todays goths and rivetheads alike. Having performed at Empire in the DC area, the dynamic duo was joined by local heroes Spider Lillies, bringing an electrified twin-guitar assault of darkened melodic force. Capturing the performance was ReGen’s own Jessica Jastrzebski, visually documenting one of the year’s most enticing tours.
