Peaches

"Thank you for the greatest show you've ever seen!" screamed electronica goddess Merrill Nisker, aka Peaches, before stepping off the stage Saturday night at Terminal 5. Never one for modesty, the 43-year-old former elementary school teacher known for her provocative performances, explicit lyrics, and all around bad-ass allure, put on a great show with Brooklyn's Jessica 6 and Philly's self-proclaimed "hottest-muthafucka-on-the-whole-damn-block" Amanda Blank. Backed by her Berlin-based band Sweet Machine, Peaches' set and double encore were a sexually-charged gender-bending spectacular that featured all of her classics. The crowd went wild for numbers like "Operate," "Boys Wanna Be Her," and, of course, feel-good, sing-along hit "Fuck the Pain Away." She also rocked an array of colorful costumes that would put Lady Gaga to shame, and for her final song, "Set it Off," she wore a revealing nude bodysuit and a ghetto fab chain. "New York is the most open-mided city," she teased, before encouraging the audience with a chant of "shirts come off, shirts, shirts come off!" Lo and behold, shirts came off." [Paper]
It was a night of leggy ladies on stage at Terminal 5 in NYC on Saturday night (11/14). More pictures from the show below...

Jessica 6 is Nomi the tranny, correct?

Such conflict.

So Amanda Blank basically can't take the stage unless the nerd from Spank Rock is there. Have I got that right?

Peaches is too ugly and old to be rolling around half-naked.

The shot of Peaches surfing from out of some laser light storm, holding fast to someones hand... is one of the most ROCKGODliest shots I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Interdimensional. Its like viewing a Japaname comic of an interdimensional rock moment.

Is there a pattern here? Everyone seems to be performing in their swim suit.
