LA WEEKLY Names its TOP 5 Live Shows in Los Angeles #3
3. Iggy and the Stooges, Le Bucherettes
Hollywood Palladium, December 1st
"A Stooges show is unlike any other," wrote Henry Rollins after their recent performance. “It’s like the chase scene in an action film. It’s like watching a boxing match that goes the distance. It is not just another night out — it is a chapter of your life.” Indeed, a Stooges show is not to be missed — and not this one in particular At age 64, Iggy can still bring it as strongly as ever.
Also intriguing was the guest billing of up-and-coming noise rock trio Le Butcherettes. Showcasing the theatrics and blood-stained clothing of frontwoman Teri Gender Bender, the in-your-face group had no trouble in pumping up an older crowd, providing a well-received segue into Iggy’s performance.
