PUi leads the way on Cirque du Rock

February 10, 2010

I’ve got to give credit to the creators of Cirque du Rock, a shock-rock circus featuring a dominatrix, art installations, sideshow acts, DJ’s, video montages and an aerialist all surrounding sets from New York City hardrock bands. Their strategy is to create an event in order to get exposure for the bands, and it’s been successful over the past several months at venues like Le Poisson Rouge and Highline Ballroom.  They’ll return to Highline tomorrow night (2/10) for another night of maximum visual and aural stimulation.  The theme is Hypothermia which is fitting based on what’s happening outside.

If you only see one act, make sure to see PUi (slated for 11 pm).  Their debut EP is impressive for such a relatively new act and their live show is an aggressive display of heavy rock riffs over hip-hop beats is not to be missed.  Tickets here.  $14 dollars at the door with a portion of proceeds going to Haiti relief.  Flyer after the jump…
