The Dresden Dolls, London Astoria 12/05/2006

I finally got to see The Dresden Dolls on the weekend and what a show it was. Totally unique from the moment it started. The night started with a mummy and a gimp doing some performance arts piece in the middle of the floor. It was a bit odd to say the least. Next up was Thomas Truax, a two piece band with the second member being a mechanical drum legend named Sister Spinster. He was good fun and warmed the crowd up well. Next up was a pair of street/industrial musicians playing their bin lids... they were stunning. Then it was the turn of Devochka who played their own almost South American version of . While the Dolls set up we were treated to an aerial performer which was pretty awesome and not what you'd normally get at a gig.

So it was time for The Dresden Dolls to get on stage at last, it was well worth the wait. Picking songs both The Dresden Dolls and the latest release Yes, Virginia along with some stunning cover versions made this a very memorable night indeed. I hope to see them again pretty damn soon!

I'm not sure of the exact order of the set list but I think this is pretty close....

Missed Me
Modern Moonlight
The Perfect Fit
Coin-Operated Boy
War Pigs (Black Sabbath)
Cosmic Dancer (by Marc Bolan and T.Rex)

    I hope to see them someday. I'm going to Fuck The Back Row when it comes to town, and hopefully that'll be almost a Dresden Doll show.
