A Pigface tour can certainly yield some logistical challenges – as a band with an ever fluid lineup of musicians from all across the spectrum of the underground scene, one is never really sure what will happen. Who is going to be available? How many nights of the tour will any one musician be able to perform? What songs will the band play? Who is in the band for the first time? Is that a sitar on stage? Did I just hear a violin? Why is Krztoff from BILE in a neck brace? I thought those two guys hated each other, but they’re harmonizing vocals? How many drummers does this band have? Am I less drunk than the band? What is going to happen? You never really know… only that it is going to be a singularly awesome experience. [..]

As we all trudge through the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for entertainment of any kind has grown significantly in the past several weeks as so many concerts and live events have been cancelled or postponed, venues forced to shut down, bands and artists having to socially distance as much as the rest of us. Sure, many are live streaming and creating makeshift videos and continually finding ways to keep creating, but very little can replace the experience of actually going to a show, feeling the hum of the speakers, the squeal of the feedback, participating in the roar of the audience, and seeing musicians onstage. A photo or video of a live show tends to be a poor substitute for the experience, but they at least provide a document, a reminder of the power of music felt and shared on a particular night.
