Tours have been rare, but special. In the past we've performed live primarily in the Northwestern United States.
Playing our brand of music live has been an eye-opening experience as each song takes on a transformation, an evolution in the intimacy of a live setting. The experiences have been fun and full of surprises.
Depeche Mode, Rammstein, The Cure, Gary Numan, Yello, Skinny Puppy, NIN, Ministry, David Bowie, Orbital, Brian Eno, Yello, Eurythmics,Tori Amos, The Cult, Pop Will Eat Itself, U2, The Cars, Queen, Billy Idol, Sting, The Police, Peter Gabriel, Enigma, Devo, Wang Chung(Huang Chung), the Cranberries, Live, Tool, A Perfect Circle, Lords of Acid, The Prodigy, The Cruxshadows, Minefield, Sister Machine Gun and many, many more.
The list is much too vast and ever-changing. It is suffice to say that we follow the adventuring RPG credo which is to "use anything that isn't nailed down.", and even a few things that are. ;-)
