Atlanta, GA, Variety Playhouse, 03/17/2013


St. Patrick’s Day: a holiday typically associated with drunken debauchery. This Paddy’s Day in Atlanta would be no different, except the debauchery would be at the hands of Germans instead of Irish as KMFDM brought the party to the Variety Playhouse, supported by Seattle darkwave act Legion Within and Austin tribal/industrial drum project CHANT. Fans filled the Little Five Points area of Atlanta, decked out in leather, patches, spikes, and a Soviet military helmet to see the show. [..]

At the end of every year, there are numerous lists that get published through various outlets detailing the best of whatever your category of choice; the best movie, the best dressed, the best restaurant, what have you. Perhaps it is part of humanity’s reflective nature to reminisce on the past year and quantify it down to a simple list that can quickly summarize what made living through it a worthwhile endeavor.

For nearly three decades, the world of music and theatre has been graced with the Richmond, Virginia band’s brand of hardcore/thrash metal, simultaneously shocking and enthralling audiences by presenting one of the most renowned stage shows yet conceived.
