Is anyone going to The Knife at Fillmore this Monday?



I'm excited they've finally left Europe and came to Denver. One of my alltime favs.

It's truly a unique experience. These guys are pros... makes most popular electronica musicians today look like amateurs.

WOW.

I had never heard of The Knife before this, but I love this kind of stuff. I'll be looking them up tonight for more. :-)

(Damn. They're not coming to Portland or the Northwest at all.)

A Knife show is an experience. I'll go by myself if I have to, but I'd like to know some people there.

They're more of an underground/hipster thing in the States. They have a much bigger following in Europe, and as such most of their touring has been in Norway/Sweden/Denmark/Germany/the Netherlands.... then they'd make like three stops in like New York, LA and Chicago for their "US Tour."

That's why I was incredibly stoked to see they were coming to Denver this month.

They sing in English? Rather listen to Depeche Mode Remixes.

A lot of the bands I listen to these days -- probably most -- are from Europe, and from those specific countries. I just saw VNV Nation here last Monday, and they put on a great show in a small venue (600 people). That's more EBM/industrial-dance than The Knife, but my sweet tooth for electronica extends that far. :-)

They're hardcore feminists and vegan/animal rights types. They've participated in several pro-gay/trans demonstrations in Sweden. They're also pretty outspoken atheists.

They won a grammy a while back, but no one noticed... because they refused to attend the award ceremony for some political reason.
well, that explains the ****ty music

I thought it was part of their shtick. In the first video you posted, Karin is the androgynous one.

Sounds like it's going to be a really good show:

Coachella 2014: The Knife Dazzles Crowd At First U.S. Appearance In 8 Years
By Reggie Ugwu | April 12, 2014 3:53 PM EDT

http://www.billboard.com/articles/co...wd-at-first-us




There's a difference between playing an album live and bringing an album to life. One approach aims to faithfully reproduce an existing work and the other diligently reinvents it in a changed context, making a new creation in the process.

Swedish electronic provocateurs the Knife, making its first U.S. appearance in nearly eight years at Coachella on Friday night (April 11), proved to be enthusiastic students of the latter school. The group took its vexing and wildly experimental 2013 album, "Shaking the Habitual," and capably translated it into an experience that was deeply accessible and joyously human.

It started with the outfits. Entering the Coachella Outdoor Stage decorated to look like something out of “Alice in Wonderland,” or an undersea Willy Wonka compound, the brother-sister duo of Olof Dreijer and Karin Dreijer Andersson was accompanied by nine dancer/instrumentalists decked out in sparkly, metallic, sleeveless jumpsuits and eye masks of teal, purple and electric blue -- a merry band of neon ninjas.

"Music can be so meaningless," the Knife wrote last year in the mission statement for "Shaking the Habitual." "We had to find lust. We asked our friends and lovers to help us."

From the first song, the rhythmic and bass-heavy "Raging Lung," the performance was eminently democratic and playfully multidisciplinary. Dreijer and Andersson took non-privileged stage positions that rotated frequently, and other members of the troupe swapped instruments, including something that looked like an eight-foot, conical glockenspiel and an electronic flute-like instrument that could have been a “Star Trek” fazer. Performers -- including Shannon Funchess of Brooklyn band Light Asylum -- took turns addressing and pumping up the crowd, as if they were members of an alternate universe Mickey Mouse Club.

But choreography that had been consistent throughout the show reached an exuberant apex with the delivery of "Shaking the Habitual" single "A Tooth for an Eye." The ninjas bounded across the stage making dramatic hand gestures and swinging their hips. Pairing off into two groups at one point and facing each other for symmetrical line dancing, the display was similar to the closing sequence in a Bollywood blockbuster.

The dazzling performance, however, was light on such better-known Knife songs as "Heartbeats" and "We Share Our Mother's Health." Instead, the duo devoted all its resources to animating "Habitual" in the most singular and compelling way possible. Unconventional but universal, light-hearted but disciplined, it was a neo-tribal, life-affirming extravaganza. The Knife's music is occasionally accused of being overly literate or pretentious; thankfully, they take partying as seriously as their politics.

Wow! Electronica musicians tend to be liberal? What a shocker.

Next you're going to tell me country musicians tend to swing to the right.

I don't like country (maybe western).

FYI, all most all musicians and actors swing left.
