Blaqk Audio At Alex's Bar

As a prelude to the release of BRIGHT BLACK HEAVEN on Tuesday, Blaqk Audio (Davey Havok and Jade Puget) positively destroyed Alex's Bar in Long Beach last night. Channeling the best of the electronic past (Depeche Mode, Erasure, Pet Shop Boys) in a completely modern and unique way, if last night was any indication, Blaqk Audio is well poised to take the world by storm. Davey Havok truly swung for the fences, performing with all of the power and style he brings to AFI, with the added dimension of some of the best dance moves you will ever see from a rock frontman. While Jade remained partially hidden behind his equipment no one in the room underestimated his massive contributions to both this project and this performance. These boys have worked together for so long and so well, that it is very clear that they speak the same musical language and know how to bring out the absolute best in each other.

There are still a few opportunities to catch them live on this mini tour of small venues, and you would be well advised to move heaven and earth to get to one of these shows:
09/10/12 - Sacramento, CA @ Ace Of Spades
09/11/12 - San Francisco, CA @ Great American Music Hall
09/12/12 - San Jose, CA @ The Blank Club
09/14/12 - Los Angeles, CA @ The Roxy *SOLD OUT*
