The Tragic Tantrum hosted a dark cabaret to celebrate the release of their debut album, "Mirror, Mirror," on Feb. 4 at the Ruby Room.
In the 1980s, Bauhaus, and Love and Rockets were mainstays on modern-rock radio, long before the classification switched to alternative. David J, as part of both bands, really contributed to the distinct sound of the time. At the end of 2010, I saw him at the Dresden Dolls show and people were still tapping on each other's shoulders and whispering, "Do you know who that is?" Tonight, you can catch David J, along with Adrian H and the Wounds. Should be easy enough for everyone to find some black clothes to wear, right? Opening the night will be locals in the Tragic Tantrum, whose dark cabaret is much like that of the aforementioned Dolls. Check it out at the Casbah and give Monday the royal salute with the rest of the Anti-Leaguers.
