New York NY, September 8 – Jet Berelson founder of Vampire Freaks can put together a show like no other. Icon of Coil was insanely at it’s finest. The opening band [:SITD:] started to get things going with an amazing energetic set, followed by Icon of Coil amping up the crowd even more. Andy LaPlegua was all over the stage at Gramercy Theatre. When I spoke with him he told me, “his fans mean everything to him.” It was obvious this night as he smiled at his fans and made sure to hit every point of the stage where people could see him. In my opinion, he is a very talented, nice musician, and worth going to see at any show by his many bands: Icon of Coil, Combichrist, Panzer AG.
This night was also one to celebrate Vampire Freak’s own Annabel Fagan’s birthday. This had to have been her best birthday to date as her and Icon of Coil sat in the back and had some birthday cake together.
All in all it was a perfect night.
