Peaches and her opener Drums of Death will play a SOLD OUT show to an anxious crowd at Emo’s tonight (June 11th, 2009).

UPDATE- The Peaches show was canceled (the plane couldn’t land in Austin). More details to come about the reschedule date…

So far, everyone I have asked the question “Have you ever heard of Peaches?” to has answered my question with a question of their own:
1. No. Are they new?
2. Oh my god, are you kidding? I own all of her albums and I have seen her live 3 times!!!

For those of you that don’t know of the wonder that is “Peaches“, two lines from her Wikipedia page give a delightful summary of the artist: “Peaches is an electronica musician whose songs are notable for use of explicitly sexual lyrics but in a sort of 3rd wave feminist kind of vein. She plays her own instruments for her songs, programs her own electronic beats, and produces her own albums.”

Like Madonna:
Peaches has a large gay male following (when I hear the word “peaches”, whether in reference to the fruit or the artist, an image flashes in my head of my gay male (dancer) friend giving his own rendition of a Peaches video to the opening line of “F*** the Pain Away” …as I shyly “raise the roof” in my own attempt at dancing).
Unlike Madonna:
Peaches has a large feminist punk girl following, who are a hell of a lot cooler than Madonna fans.

My questions for this evening are as follows:
1. Will Peaches follow tradition and spit a mouthful of venue-provided bottled water into a happy-to-have-Peaches-saliva-on-them crowd (as seen in the pic above)?
2. Will Peaches endrogenously dangle the mic between her legs during the intro to “Boys Wanna Be Her” (as seen in the vid below)?
3. Will Peaches reiterate the recent confirmations that “she’s still got it!” after all these years? (I’m predicting that this answer will be a definitive “yes!”)

(More to come after the show… If you’re heading that way tonight, don’t forget to catch the opening act Drums of Death. I’ve heard good things.)
