Show Review & Photos: The Bloody Beetroots @ Showbox Market

I wish the Bloody Beetroots – Death Crew 77 could have played all night long. Their recent set at the Showbox Market was engaging and terrifying. At times their songs were gentle, hypnotic piano pieces (“Storm,” “Domino,” “dimmakmmunication”), and at times they were loud screaming matches (“Warp 1977”) between singer Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo and himself. I enjoyed both sides of this Italian band comprised of Rifo and Tommy Tea (for their live show they were joined by newest addition, drummer Edward Grinch). All band members wore the distinctive Bloody Beetroots mask, which made for a strangely connective experience with the band. I had thought it would be otherwise. The musicianship displayed by the Bloody Beetroots was top tier – that Rifo goes from elegant piano playing to ripping guitar work, with no jarring quality to the transition, showed their range. Their debut CD, Romborama, came out last year and this was their first Seattle show as the Bloody Beetroots – Death Crew 77. I have to hope the CD and shows will be the first of many of each. This band stunned me. Here are some of my photos from the evening:
