Goth Kids Come Out for IAMX and Kat Von D at the Great American Music Hall

in SF Concert Reviews by

IAMX, whose real name is Chris Corner and was the co-Founder of Sneaker Pimps back in the late 90s, played the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco last night, to a room packed full of goth/emo kids that had ventured into the dark night to lay their ghoulish eyes on the powerful scrawny figure.

Although most were there to see IAMX, those in attendance wearing High Voltage Tattoo hoodies and intricate dark eye makeup were there for the featured guest of the evening, the great Kat Von D. That’s right, the  talented celebrity tattoo artist and bonafide Hollywood icon, who is also a very skilled musician, is currently touring with the frontman all throughout Northern California.

The evening was filled with subsonic beats, eery melodies, and deep vocals, coupled with a larger than life light production, which blended alternative electronica with macabre theater.

The tour is in support of IAMX’s first LP, which was released earlier this year that also features collaborations with Kat Von D. It comes hot on the heels of the video that IAMX directed for Gary Numan’s lead single “My Name is Ruin” off of his current LP.

Music in SF™ was there to capture the magic and to take photos of the epic event. See below for a full photo gallery.
