It’s been three years since I’ve had the pleasure of seeing and photographing Le Butcherettes. Some things have changed, naturally; A shift in lineup, new music, a new album. It was both exciting and a bit of a letdown getting to see them play a sold out show and open for Incubus on their 20 Years of Make Yourself Tour at The Sylvee in Madison, WI. Obvious reasons for why it was exciting: the electric performance by all members, guitars/synth by Riko Rodríguez-López, bass by Marfred Rodríguez-López, drums by Alejandra Robles Luna, and rounding out the crew, vocals/guitar/keyboard and all-around extraordinaire Teri Gender Bender. The letdown was due to Le Butcherettes set being so short. I would have loved to see them play so much more than the 20 or so minutes they got. Being the only other band on the bill, I would have hoped they would have gotten more time. Alas, the time they did have on stage was entertaining, and nothing less than the signature flavor Le Butcherettes faithfully deliver.

Catch them on the remainder of the U.S. tour through December 7th. Tickets and dates here. Their newest EP release Don’t Bleed is available for pre-order. Check out their newest music video for “Tunisia” just freshly released.

Summer Slaughter is ripping through North America on its 11th year. Born Of Osiris is no stranger to playing this tour. It was their first time playing Concord Music Hall though. They really amped up the crowd and played a seriously killer set. Their energy was electric and difficult not to get into (not that we were trying to resist). Their new single “Silence the Echo” was received with great reception. It’s always a pleasure having the boys back in their hometown for a show.
