what time will regina go on?

IAMX is seriously the best band I've ever seen live. You are doing yourself a great disservice if you don't check them out while they are here in the states. They never disapoint!

Bebe, Does Chris Corner come with a full band when he performs as IAMX?
Does IAMX's music resemble sneaker pimps at all?

"Will tickets be available at the door at BV's showcase?"

As of 3pm, there are still some tickets left at the door - not a lot though. You can also get them still at the Merc box office.

thx!

Von Iva cancelled their whole trip.

I'm going to stick up some video of them later today.

Personally I'm going to check out Smoke Fairies at 169Bar tonight.

Yes, IAMX is a full band, not a solo project, though all the music and lyrics are written by Chris. The music does not resemble the Sneaker Pimps, in fact, its much much better! Its dark and sexy. If I had to explain it best, I would say that they are the love child of Muse and NIN. Check them out at www.myspace.com/iamx

Their live show is infectious. You will get addicted.
