Club sCum With Neyva, Garbitch, Romy, Satanna, Dusk, Royaltie$ At The Echo, Monday December 23rd 2019

All December-long, Club sCum has organized a series of residencies at the Echo, and yesterday, 2 days before Christmas, was a perfect day to check out this trashy-artsy expression of the LGBTQ Latinx youth. The evening was a strange and intriguing mix of various expressions with an artsy dance number and some very aggressive hardcore music coming female-fronted bands like Garbitch and Royaltie$.

Neyva started the night with her ‘musical alien’ persona and some loud screaming over bass-heavy tracks, a true punk celebration, even when the song started like a cumbia. She then turned to electronica for a spacey solo number with a veil and ethereal vocals. The music became totally pop with layers of autotune above piercing electronics and peaceful to transcendental synths.

With their trash-assault attitude, Garbitch was a completely different story, a hardcore number played with a badass attitude and dissonant guitars while the two alternating female singers were all-scream. With a song telling us to ‘kill all cops’, a violent queercore expression, a withholding-nothing attitude, they trashed the stage with loudness, horror shrieks and sludgy moments, while the singer went even topless, lying on the floor of the stage for the last song.

Australian electronic producer Romy once again shifted the mood to some darker but energetic layered soundscapes. At times, her beats could remind me something from Lykke Li, but her wide-screen productions tended to be more on the industrial side with touches of techno and darkwave, while her vocals were the strangest part of her sound, loud but cavernous, and sort of enigmatic. A respected DJ who runs the biggest parties in Melbourne and Los Angeles, Romy has played shows with Front 242, Poptone, Cold Cave, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Peaches, and many other artists, and you could tell, standing alone in front of her very impressive table of electronics, she was building an edgy dancefloor monster out of this complicated maze.

Striper Satanna (I am not sure you could call her a stripper, but everyone was throwing money at her) did a dance number in a very Christmas-y outfit over a Talking Head song. She was immediately followed by the Queer Queen of Scum, Dusk, who did the artsiest dance number of the night over sexy swirly synths and new-age-spaced-out sounds.

Royaltie$ were the last ones to trash the place, and we were back to hard/queercore with ferocious females who removed a few layers of clothes as the set progressed. In mosh assaults and complete distortion, they launched a crazy set of noise and aggression with saw-like guitars and throat-scrapping screams, while losing parts of their pants and having the funniest hardcore panty parties.

This was not an ordinary night, and certainly not a Christmas eve’s eve kind of night, it was an underground night embracing punk, raw expression, and drag, fronted by fierce characters with strange makeup and extravagant outfits, revendicating their queer nature with the rage of freedom.
