Walter Sickert And The Army Of Broken Toys @ Brighton Music Hall 10.31.2012

Walter Sickert And The Army Of Broken Toys turned Brighton Music Hall into their own personal SquidHouse Of Horror for Halloween. The night featured a wild menagerie of music, burlesque and dark humor, capped off by Walter and the gang delivering a healthy dose of all three.

Walter Sickert And The Army Of Broken Toys @ Brighton Music Hall 3.16.2012

Walter Sickert and his traveling band of SteamCrunk gypsies make their way to the stage. It has already been an eclectic and memorable evening. Black Thai overpowered us with their thunderous roll. Sidewalk Driver made us a sandwich. Planetoid tried to power their spaceship with our souls and/or melt our faces — which is a better fate than Mary Widow and her seductress companions wished upon us. Now we’re being tipped on end by sights and sounds as varied as the night is long. The Army Of Broken Toys are putting their musical and physical wares on display in an attempt to bring the crowd under their spell. We tumble along, once again avoiding the grasp of Mary Widow as “Ghostbusters” rings through the rafters…

Jaggery surprised me at MixTape 1988 with amazing range. I knew they could pull off dark and moody takes on Enya, Def Leppard and Cocteau Twins. I expected that. It was busting out some dance pop numbers from Neneh Cherry and Rob Base that really brought the house down. Cool.
