blasthaus 17 Year Anniversary Party
feat
PEACHES

and more TBA

blasthaus celebrates 17 years with the phenomenal, Peaches; self-made, self-produced, do-it-yourself leader of the electro punk movement! Since the release of her debut album in 2000, Peaches has spread her seed on the pop culture landscape, harnessing a worldwide audience and, along with the countless followers shes inspired, has shaped the mainstream into a more inclusive and sexually progressive surrounding. Over the years, shes built a reputation on her suggestive and intelligent lyrics, her amalgamation of rock and electro sounds and her balls-out performances, continuing to outdo herself with each brash step.

On the other end of the spectrum, she conceived Peaches Does Herself, a quasi-autobiographical, career-chronicling theatrical production that pastiched over 20 of her songs into an abstract narrative. The retrospective extravaganza employed a cast and crew of over 40, including her backing band Sweet Machine, full-frontal nudity courtesy of trans porn actress Danni Daniels, oversize upholstered vaginae, and elements from the Peaches Laser Show she had brought to several European capitals earlier in the year. Peaches Does Herself represented her body of work dealing with such themes as gender, beauty and age.

Aside from her featured appearances on the latest albums from R.E.M., Christina Aguilera and the Flaming Lips, Peaches has been a keynote speaker and guest lecturer at institutions like NYU and the University of Toronto. Her plans for 2012 involve producing the next album from Taiwanese band Go Chic and taking the stage as the titular character in a production of LOrfio, Monteverdis 1607 opera, standing out as the only classically untrained cast member.

Peaches is also in the early phases of her fifth full-length (technically her sixth, if you count the one released under her birth name Merrill Nisker in 1995, before she plucked her stage name from Nina Simones feminist anthem Four Women). Meanwhile, Peaches lyrical, musical and stylistic influences continue to be seen and heard in artists around the world, from mainstream to underground. But making direct comparisons would never do justice to her uniqueness. Apples to oranges. Shes just Peaches!
