Electric Eel Shock @ Cake Shop
Electric Eel Shock

[Electric Eel Shock are a trio that practices in] ...crazy Japanese metal. These three guys make Boris look like a chamber quartet. They hit the stage to Iron Man with the singer/guitarist leading the crowd in a karaoke version for a verse. Then they are ready to rip into their own songs. The guys with axes are flashy with plenty of cliche metal moves delivered with speed and integrity (and by integrity, I mean a complete enthusiastic honesty in the manner of a satirist who completely accepts his subject). The drummer is wearing shoes and socks, two black gloves and one elongated sock. He often plays with two sticks in each hand. The last time I saw this was when someone was playing a xylophone. -[Review from the DC show by DC Rock Live]
Electric Eel Shock's tour with Hot Cha Cha came to an end with a raucous show at Cake Shop on March 25th featuring Hard Nips, The Vandellas, and Musuki Aruvavo Lee. Here are somewhat-NSFW (thanks to the Red Hot Chili Peppers-like outfit the drummer of EES was "wearing") pictures from the show. More below...

Linsanity approves due to uncertainty as to whether these people are Chinese or Laotian.

LINSANITY LIVES!
