Los Angeles-based electronic rock outfit The Black Queen, led by The Dillinger Escape Plan‘s Greg Puciato and rounded out by Joshua Eustis (ex-NIN, ex-Puscifer, Telefon Tel Aviv) and Steven Alexander (former tech for TDEP, NIN and more), recently cruised through New York City for a rare concert at Manhattan’s Gramercy Theatre on December 9th. The NYC gig was part of a trio of fall shows for the band, which include upcoming appearances in San Francisco at Rickshaw Stop on Dec. 28th and LA at Union Nightclub on Dec. 30th [tix still available].
The Gramercy performance saw the threesome dish out a full rendition on their debut LP, Fever Daydream, counting singles such as “Ice to Never,” “Secret Scream” and “Distanced,” paired with mesmerizing strobe lighting, haze and ghostly imagery. TBQ‘s Joshua Eustis provided direct support with his electronic project Telefon Tel Aviv. Meanwhile, Courtney Swain (Bent Knee) and Zvi aka Ron Varod of Kayo Dot warmed up the crowd earlier in the night.
