Peter Murphy: Atlanta 2011

The Masquerade, a lovely venue in Atlanta, featured Peter Murphy in “Heaven” (top floor). He toured along with two other bands called Hussle Club and She Wants Revenge.  My boyfriend, Joe, bought tickets to this as a birthday present to me. Since he happens to be a metalhead (and Exhumed and Goatwhore were playing in “Hell” that night), this was very sweet of him. We first arrived, and the venue was nearly empty. I was very disappointed with the turnout at first, but many more people showed up as the night progressed.  I was also a little surprised to see a few people in Crow make-up, but never-mind that. Also, let me apologize in advance for the poor picture and video quality taken on my camera.  The first group that played was Hussle Club, a band from New York. They actually had some catchy songs like “Fxck Shxt Up ” and “Children of the Underground” They had a lot of energy on stage, and a couple of songs reminded me slightly of Marilyn Manson. I only had one criticism for this gr…

Peter Murphy and Gothic Rock 2

Yesterday, I decided to haul my butt up to the mall’s music shop. Since the Peter Murphy concert in Atlanta is tomorrow, I decided to buy my own copy of Ninth. I wasn’t expecting that store to have much of what I was looking for. After browsing a couple of minutes, I found the last copy of Ninth. Not only did I find Ninth, I found a used copy of Gothic Rock 2, the double disc set from 1995! One disc was for classic 80’s Goth Rock, and the other was “…into the 90’s.” I found this Classic CD at my local suburban mall…It’s still a shock to me.  O_O Review of Ninth: This is a very lively album of Peter Murphy’s. The songs are quite catchy, especially “I Spit Roses.” The lyrics are great, and it still sounds like Peter. The production is very clean, and the album is nicely done overall. I’m incredibly thrilled to see this brilliant artist in person. I’ll be sure to post pictures soon enough.
Review of Gothic Rock 2: This one was from Cleopatra records. It is a compilation of many Gothic Roc…

Cleopatra Eyes

I was feeling especially like Cleopatra today, so I decided to go for that look. This was my first attempt at truly Egyptian inspired eyes. I’ve wanted to try this look for a while, but I finally got around to it.  I got some mixed reactions like “scary” and “spooky” … not really what I was aiming for, but I suppose it’s better than nothing. ;)
Step One: Primer! I use Urban Decay. The key to keeping a good look is a good primer. Even the best of eye shadows are useless without a good primer.
Step Two: I put light shimmery blue shadow all over my eyes up to my brows. Go darker towards the lid, then fade the color around the brows.
Step Three: I added a darker blue to accentuate the lids, then I did a cat eye swooping motion to just the end of my eyebrow.
Step Four: I added a bit of gold below my eyebrows and in inside corners of my eyes
Step Five: Add a dark line of eyeliner. Act like you are doing a cat eye, but draw the line straight outwards instead of curled up. I used MAC felt tip lin…
