After having played a crowded Old Firehouse in Manhattan the night before, Grass Widow destroyed at Brooklyn’s packed and fairly muggy Monster Island Basement on Tuesday. Apparently the A/C had died just before the show, setting a toasty sauna vibe throughout the night. My two cents on this: Air conditioning is for old people anyway. Some things just have to be earned the hard way, especially when it comes to Brooklyn warehouse shows. They have always been sweltering affairs. Last night, promoter ToddP, took it back to the basics if you will. And in all honesty, the heat wasn’t even half as bad as at the infamous Erykah Badu show earlier this year.

Remember that Chris Isaak video for “Wicked Game” that pretty much changed your life and made you sexually aware at the tender age of 5? Other than dripping pure sex, the reason why those shots worked were because of the complete inclusion into an intimacy that usually isn’t shared with strangers. In Violens newest video for “Acid Reign (‘In The Trees’ Mix)” we get a glimpse into another intimacy, but this time it’s the teary eyed Jorge Elbrecht “doing his best George Michael“. Or maybe he’s just sweaty… either way, we’re into it.
