Unabashed profanity, fever-pitch melodrama, transgressive politics, and rafter-shaking beats mingle in The Scene Is Dead Tour 2012, running nearly nonstop through December. Sporting severely sleek, Kiss-like makeup, the frontmen of Blood on the Dance Floor rose to national attention with the release of Evolution earlier this year. Glossing over gothic melancholy with a Lisa Frank color scheme, the duo boast a stylistic agility highlighted on tracks such as “Rise and Shine,” which melds together agonized lyrics and two-ton dubstep. The elaborately coiffed foot-looseners are joined by fellow beat-maker, beauty guru, and sometimes collaborator Jeffree Star. The self-styled “Queen of the Internet” in dayglo-pink hair, Star spits straightforwardly obscene come-ons with aggressive glee. His frank vocal delivery of ridiculously raunchy camp surges through driving, chopped-up beats on “Jeffree Star Has More Fun Than You” and moves sinuously slow on “Legs Up,” a song about proper marching technique.
Arizona duo Consider Me Dead transports their atmospheric pop-electronic sound from the desert to the stage, sending lacerating vocals through hazy soundscapes in songs such as “Breathe Me In” and “Get On My Level.” Davey Suicide completes the billing, with his blond dreadlocks, leather-clad band, and unfiltered profanity bespeaking his allegiance to both Marilyn Manson and Eminem.
The Glass House
Resembling a space ship abandoned by aliens who had recently time-traveled to hang out with Le Corbusier, The Glass House is a portal to rock and dance sounds for music-lovers of all ages. It’s also a cornerstone of downtown Pomona’s close-knit arts district, surrounded by record stores, cafes, and vintage shops. Holiday-themed shows and fundraising concerts join young, on-the-rise bands on the calendar, along with established favorites such as New Found Glory and The Faint.
