TVD Live Shots: Lorelei with Deathfix and Sun Wolf, the Black Cat, 8/17

LORELEI: SHANTEL MITCHELL

Despite guitarist and vocalist Matt Dingee’s stomach bug troubles, DC’s Lorelei breezed through a set composed of almost all new material from their brand new Slumberland Records release Enterprising Sidewalks Friday night at The Black Cat.

TVD Live: The Cure
at the Beacon Theater, 11/25 and 11/26

I love The Cure. They have been my all time favorite artists since I was about 15, and over the last 20 years no one has topped them in my book. So, you have to imagine my excitement when this past May, they announced that they were playing a “Reflections” show which consisted of their first three albums performed back to back and included appearances by one of the band’s original duos, Lol Tolhurst, and former keyboardist Roger O’Donnell.

This was to be a monumental show for any Cure fan, not to mention that The Cure’s second album, Seventeen Seconds, is my favorite Cure album and hearing it live from start to finished would be wonderful for me. However, here was the catch, the show was only being performed for three nights . . .  in Australia! Hmmm . . .  Australia . . .

I’ve always wanted to visit the land down under and what better excuse then to see The Cure, after all, this would not be the first time I had traveled great lengths to see this band. Not only have I seen every tour since Disintegration but one—and there was a GOOD reason for missing that show—I have seen them at every festival in my area in addition to shows in Florida, Philadelphia, New York, Las Vegas, and… London. Yes, I went to London to see The Cure. So, why not Australia?
