Nico Vega Support for Placebo in USA

Nico Vega announce a fresh round of tour dates today, beginning with several shows in California- including an appearance at Sunset Junction in Silver Lake- followed by a fall tour with UK alt-rockers Placebo starting on September 12th in Portland, OR.

While the band travels the country with their explosive live set, their single "Gravity" will be lighting up the airwaves with a comprehensive nationwide radio campaign.

In other news, Nico Vega's song "Beast" is featured in Marcus Dunstan's horror flick The Collector, and fans of Tony Hawk's popular Pro Skater video game can shred to the tune of "Burn Burn."

The band has been touring incessantly in support of their self-titled debut, which was released on Myspace Records earlier this year. Their scorching live show, hallmarked by the formidable presence of frontwoman Aja Volkmann, as well as guitarist Rich Koehler and drummer Dan Epand, has earned them significant praise from the press. Filter appropriately likened the band to "a musical, mythical beast." In a recent feature in 944 Magazine, the band was heralded as a "brutal love triangle of rock, funk and blues" and congratulated for its "wide musical scope, which stretches from stomach-scraping soul to unrelenting rage." The NY Post called Aja "insanely spirited," comparing her to Janis Joplin and Karen O, and hailed the band's set "a fantastic surprise."

Club Nokia Show

Hello All :)

I saw this posted on Placebowhores and thought I should check it out.
I will be attending the sept.20th show @ Club Nokia, and I was wondering if there was anyone who could spare a ride. I will gladly chip in for gas money, I live out in SoCal. But I would hate to have to go by myself, since I'm the only one of my friends going to the show.

Thanks ^.^

Need a ticket for Projekt Revolution tomorrow?

I know it's very last minute, but I've suddenly had someone cancel on me, and I've got a pit ticket for the show in Washington on Wednesday. I am just asking for face value ($90 after you add the "convenience" fees). I will be leaving the house at 10, so best to respond before then. Plan to be there as soon as the parking opens at 11, so plenty of time for you to find me and get the ticket before the gates open.

Shirt help - Anyone going to Coachella?

Hey guys,

Posting this here, as well as on placebowhores

Just saw Placebo last night in AZ.  They were fan-fucking-tastic, but more on that later.  After the show I attempted to get Placebo shirt, (the black girly one with blue scratchy placebo logo) but They wouldnt  accept my debit card.  I went to the ATM to get some cash but it was out of order!  I couldnt get cash anywhere and they wouldnt sell me a shirt.  I was so bummed :( 

Would anyone goint to the show in Coachella possibly be willin gto purchase a shirt for me?  I'd pay for the whole thing plus shipping and everything.  And I'd love you forever. 

Let me know if you can help, You'd be my hero.

I'll post this here too just in case some of you aren't on placebowhores.

So, I am looking for people in the Chicago land area or those willing to come to me ;) WHO want to rent an RV and drive to Montreal.
THIS IS MY DREAM SHOW. Ever since I can remember when the question was posed... What is your dream show? Well this is it for me. And I have to go.
Placebo and the Smashing Pumpkins.. I know it's not the same as it would have been in the 90's but hell its as close as its going to get.

This may not be an appropriate post (again) ;) But I thought I'd give it a try.
Who is with me?


Much Love Rae

Placebo Makes Portland Short List

The Oregonian A&E lists Placebo in the Five Live "Promising shows coming your way" section today.

Brian Molko and crew fill soccer stadiums in Europe but scare the socks off Americans. Maybe the band's raucous spin on danceable glam rock, Molko's androgynous sexuality and his fascination with bodily functions is more than we can take right now - but it sure is fun.

Then it goes on to list them at the wrong venue. *rolls eyes*

My friend is driving 13 hours to hang with me and go see them. Yay!

Ticket for the Seattle show

I hope it's okay to post this here.

My friend just learned he has to work Saturday night, so I've got a ticket for the Seattle show. I have no interest in *earning* money, but would simply like to recoup the cost of the ticket (price + stupid sales fees = ~ $28). I would need to know before Friday night if someone was interested, so that I can get the ticket from him. I'll be queuing up early, so you wouldn't need to worry about me showing up late. Would insist on cash :)

    Yazoo: Only You

Is anyone else in Denver worried about....

1. Placebo will not be at tomorrow's show because Brian will still be sick.
2. The show will go on because Evaline will open for Wolfmother and then Wolfmother will just play a longer set.
3. We won't get our money back because of number 2.
4. It won't get rescheduled because of number 2.

I really hope I'm just being pessimistic and not realistic.
