Music to Your Ears

Dear Hedwig and the Angry Inch fanatics (you don't really go by "Hedheads," do you?),
Tilly and the Wall
Tapa tapa tapa

Noise musicians are the vampires of the music world. Cloaked in black, they like to stay up all night sucking. (Face!) No, but seriously, 20-odd noise acts will shun the light of day in a 12-hour nighttime showcase this Friday, Sept. 26. The Sicksicksick Overnight Festival is from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. at STOVE (114 Morningside NE) and costs just $7, which includes breakfast. That part I’m not kidding about. (LM)

Oh, to have long hair. Jennifer Herrema’s got it and you can just picture the RTX frontwoman and rock sorceress whipping it around and around until her brain cells turn to pudding. RTX’s third album has hair-metal galore, and when the band’s not thrashing about, it’s in the midst of a talk-box-heavy space-out. Then Herrema’s voice rises to a scream and another chaotic rant ensues. Not a live album, but intentionally under-produced, JJ Got Live RATX is tight-pants-wearing rock that keeps it real and very loud. (SM)
