Show preview: Le Butcherettes at Subterranean, 11/4

Halloween may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean it's time to give up on live gore and campy horror. If Le Butcherettes' set at Lollapalooza was any indication, their show this Friday should be something not to be missed. They had probably the smallest crowd of anyone I saw that weekend, but I think every one of us walked away knowing we wouldn't see anything better for the whole event. Musically, the trio links the Cramps with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Lead singer Teri Gender Bender (originally from Guadalajara, Mexico) ran around the stage like a possessed madwoman, her smock covered in (hopefully) fake blood. She threw her shoes into the audience, bounced around a lot, pounded on the keyboard and six-strings and referenced Henry Miller. Let’s see…oh yeah, the drummer vomited before the last song and still managed to finish the set at breakneck speed. Ummm, yeah, it was a great show. I can only imagine it getting wilder in a more intimate venue, like say, maybe the Subterranean this Friday, November 4th (9:00 PM, 17+, $10, tickets here). This deal is equally sweetened with the addition of opening sets by locals White Mystery and Gypsyblood. Get ready for some noise and chaos.
