Although we’re all still lamenting the days when our favorite industrial disco sleazeballs (and other subversive outsiders in general) could headline a city’s premiere clubs throughout the ‘90s, Philthy has enjoyed getting to see Wax Trax! alums My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult play some of the city’s quirkier venues throughout the past decade and a half; from the former mecca of hair metal, Whiskeydix; to our favorite former corner punk dive, the North Star; the emo sanctuary that is The Barbary; and most, recently, a sold out show at PhilaMOCA, the city’s premiere gallery, art house, and hipster venue.  However, this Saturday, October 26th, Groovie Mann and Buzz McCoy are bringing their current show to perhaps the koolest and most appropriate venue the city has to offer the fetish-driven dance outfit, the Sanctuary of the First Unitarian Church (where there will be a service, come Sunday morning…)  Thrill Kill Kult are currently touring behind their latest studio LP, In the House of Strange Affairs, which dropped earlier this year, but their recent setlists have been generously spanning their 30+ year career.  If you need any extra help getting excited for their show this Saturday, have a listen to this playlist of what I consider to be their 10 most essential songs.
