Muen Magazine reviewed THE SICK TALK TOUR with ORGY, 9ELECTRIC & DEATH VALLEY HIGH when we hit Waterloo, IA March 28, 2015.
9Electric took over the night at Spicoli’s Grill. They have played at this venue on several occasions, previously providing direct support for Powerman 5000 on this stage. There were familiar faces during their set and they brought the energy and 9Electric’s frontman Thunderwood did an amazing job in engaging the audience into creating the atmosphere into a New Year’s Eve party type of atmosphere. They played cuts off of their latest EP entitled “Control”. Some of the 9Electric fans were singing along with glee with their single entitled “Goodbye”, in which Thunderwood gleefully described as a song about “killing your ex”. I see this band doing very well for themselves into the future. They had the lights, the stage presence, and they further engaged the audience into taking a massive group selfie. Brilliant guitar work displayed by Mikey Lopez(in which you can check out my interview with him in the “Interviews” section right here on MUEN Magazine), and the rhythm section brought out a feel good New Wave, if Billy Idol took steroids, type of vibe to their sound. Fans are anxious for them to come back to Spicoli’s Grill. 9Electric provided the classic example of “setting the bar high” in the direct support slot position of a concert billing.
