Chicago is supposedly a place with big shoulders. Plus they butcher a lot of hogs there, I hear. Those giant and bloody characteristics, as well as the city’s dismal winter environment, may be reasons for the rise of industrial dance music through the heat-blasted, snow-infested yet somehow danceable music popularized on Wax Trax! records in the 1980s. My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult (Groovie Man and Buzz McCoy) are one of the progenitors of this abrasively tender type of rocanrol tuneage. They’ll be doing their iron-clad, sleazy thing at Launchpad (618 Central Ave SW) on Sunday, Oct. 8, as part of their 30th Anniversary Tour. If you wanna be “Kooler Than Jesus” or feel like you should be part of a “Sexplosion!”, then you ought to go. $13 • 8pm • 21+.
