total sonic annihilation

Last night I went to see A Place to Bury Strangers for the NINTH TIME. Hard to believe that I first them in 2007 before I moved to Alaska, and met my boyfriend at that show! They've taken their live performance to exciting places since then and now have the distinction of being one of the best touring bands right now (in my humble opinion). Utilizing multiple projectors and strobe lights, their brash visual aesthetic perfectly complements their ungodly loud guitars. When I say loud, I really mean, completely fucking ear-searingly loud. They are playing across the US at the moment and I highly highly recommend catching a show in your city! It is an experience.














I wore my favorite Risto falling petal dress with Venessa Arizaga necklace, House of Matching Colours sequined wrap belt, and Dries van Noten shoes.

I don't know the band, but I will look them up now. That is also some of the best live/music/band photography I've ever seen. Lastly- of course, the dress is beautiful too. You always dress so well.

As always your outfit is fabulous, i love how your style evolved with years.The ethereal romantic gothic style is totally my thing too. However, i'm love with this band for 3 years now and didn't had the chance to see them live. Thank for sharing those gig pics.

@goo girls YOU WILL LOVE THEM! say hi to oliver for me!

@tam APTBS uses strobe lights in their shows. using a slow shutter speed and low ISO, you can get this stuttered effect.
