If you ever hear of EDITH POP playing anywhere you can get to, then get to it and you will see one of the most compelling live acts around. Last night it hit me that the front woman for the band puts on a show that's like a mashup of Lydia Lunch and Iggy Pop. And speaking of compelling live acts, the band they were opening for, the main act of the three bands playing, CAPSULA, was fantastic. The show they gave last night was pure punk rock by a stripped down dynamic trio (guitar, drums and bass) that never let up.
I tried to find some live shows online that reflected the power and speed of the music they made last night but nothing captured the experience, so you'll just have to catch them live sometime too. That might be difficult since they all live in Bilbao, Spain (though they're originally from Argentina, and by the bad ass female bassist's looks I'd say she might descend from some of the original inhabitants of that country).
The show they gave last night was like a distillation of the best shows you could see at the height of CBGB's punk scene, pure power, attitude and commitment to the spirit of the music no holds barred. One of my new favorite music makers: CAPSULA.
