Nikka Costa is a fiery redhead with a small frame and voice that will blow an eardrum. She is no novice to the stage and you can see that in the way she carries herself, and through the ease with which she wraps crowd around her every word.

3. Nic Offer of !!!, live on stage at Mezzanine, San Francisco, August 3, 2005

I am going to guess that you think that !!! is chicchicchic but its really any three repetitive sounds. With procution driven songs and lyrics that make fans freak out, these guys are something to see. The 7 members are like a well oiled machine switching instruments mid song with ease. If you missed this free last minute show that !!! played you should definitely bite your elbows.
