REVIEW BY: STEVE IN ORANGE

Blackie and company took the stage around 10:30 pm Saturday night in Hollywood.

I have never been to a WASP show, so I was surprised to see a pit start up. I had no idea WASP music influenced fans in this way. While in the same room with all the freaks of Hollywood, I was just trying to keep my fiancé from being tossed around, or getting beat up, like some asshole did to a poor girl. She got mixed up in the pit and fell down as this asshole proceeded to punch her. But not to fear the, L.A.P.D. GOT THE FUCKER. Anyway, on with the review.

Like I said, WASP took the stage around 10:30 and like a thunderstorm, they were off and running. They started with “On your Knees,” “Inside the Electric Circus,” “Hellion,” and ended with “Chainsaw Charlie.”

Blackie’s mic stand consisted of a skeleton with its arms up high, as if it were riding a chopper. It also was flexible and strong enough to bend and sway any which way. How he thinks of this shit, I don’t know, but it was very entertaining.

Blackie then proceeded to tell the crowd about the band, about when they first started, that he lived right down the street, and one of the first songs he wrote started with the line “I have pictures of naked ladies laying on the bed.” The place went fucking nuts and the pit was out of control.

After a few more songs, the lights went to a “dark/black” effect. Blackie then got on top of his “skeletal” mic stand as the song “My Tortured Eyes” started. While singing, he broke open a glow stick and smeared the goop over his arms and face, so all you could see was a glow-in-the-dark silhouette of a face. While riding high on his mic, he would begin swaying back and forth, and side to side. After that piece, they played “The Real Me” and then said goodnight. As the crowd chanted “BLACKIE, BLACKIE” and then “W.A.S.P., W.A.S.P.” Blackie appeared from backstage alone and did an acoustic song, which was cool. Then to end the night, they played the piece everyone was waiting for “Blind in Texas.”

All in all, it was a great show and W.A.S.P. sounded great. Blackie showed no signs of losing his vocal ability. If WASP invades your town, go see them. You will not be disappointed.

Here is the set list:

1. Intro: Overture; 2.Opening medley: On your knees, Inside the Electric Circus, Hellion, Chainsaw Charlie; 3. L.O.V.E. Machine; 4. Animal; 5. Wild Child; 6. What I’ll Never Find; 7. Sister Sadie; 8. My Tortured Eyes; 9. The Real Me; 10. I Wanna Be Somebody; 11. Blind in Texas.
