Peter Murphy concert @ Club Nokia Los Angeles (Justin Gill)

Peter Murphy (of Bauhaus fame) stopped by Club Nokia to perform in his distinctive baritone voice.  Being no novice to performing on stage, he swaggered around demonstrating a wide range of debonair poses and arm movements.  A nice surprise was opening his set with his rendition of Nine Inch Nail’s “Hurt,” and wrapping up with David Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust.”

Opening for Peter Murphy at Club Nokia was She Wants Revenge.  They were a fitting opening act, as frontman Justin Warfield himself claimed that Peter Murphy is a huge influence on his own singing style, and it shows.  Despite their moodier, darkwave sound, She Wants Revenge had the entire audience cheerily singing along.

Echo & The Bunnymen @ Club Nokia, Los Angeles (Justin Gill)

Liverpool post-punk band Echo & the Bunnymen have been cranking out songs and tours years before I was even born. It was nice to catch them at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles, for a rather intimate set full of songs from several different albums, and an extended encore. Vocalist Ian McCulloch is going on strong, despite the fact that he seemed to be chain smoking nearly the entire set.

There was no end of the world as some religious fanatics predicted for May 21st 2011, but there was certainly a Killing Moon.
