Shilpa Ray

Due to the snow, I suffered miserably to get myself to the Woodstock party at Santos Party House on Monday night. By the time I got there I had missed the first act Joanna Erdos and the Midnight Show.

Regardless, Shilpa Ray & Her Happy (male) Hookers are pretty much blowing my mind these days and this show was no exception. Shilpa has an addictive rasp that screams Fuck-all attitude... appropriate for a Woodstock-themed event. Santos, with its heart-shaped disco ball and neon psychedelic lights are a far cry from the sun-soaked open fields of Woodstock, but Shilpa did the best Woodstock she could - killer Hendrix "Fire" cover included, especially considering the crowd was pretty sober and there was definitely no one wandering around naked and tripping.
