We Don’t Play Guitars!


Electro-clash sarcasto vixens Chicks on Speed are finally playing the DC area – a couple of years after their hey-dey – but hey better late than never and that’s about how long it takes most of this town to find the really cool scene anyway.

I worship these ladies and their unique brand of musical satire. Sending-up everything in the worlds of fashion, entertainment, and politics in such a circular way that by show’s end you don’t know whether you’re coming or going. For tonight expect a tissue paper fashion show, spatulas, and some jarringly original dance music as CoS dissect, digest and regurgitate the genre they helped create back in ’98.

They are playing an early show at Cubik down at Nation where the Buzzlife promoters have got a full night lined-up. Not only are CoS playing but so are Glastonbury wunderkinds Infusion and uber-DJ Rob Swift along with the Scion Battle of the DJ’s to round-out a night of dancing well-worth the 20 samoleons.
