WATCH: Perfume Genius at Dan’s Silverleaf on Monday night

OK, there may not be much to watch, but Tactics Productions’ Brad Ehney posted this video of gay singer Mike Hadreas AKA Perfume Genius performing “Dark Parts at Dan’s in Denton last night. Dark is right as the venue’s lighting didn’t quite work with Ehney’s camera, but Hadreas’ sound is spot on. So maybe just give it a listen.

I am sad to admit I didn’t make the show, but glad Ms. Schroeder gave us a taste of what it was like.

Concert Notice: Perfume Genius at Dan’s March 26

I recently posted Perfume Genius’ provocative video for “Hood,” which featured him being dolled up by a hunky porn star. It’s pretty hot, but also fascinating. Although I doubt adult film star Arpad Miklos will be joining, PG will bring his elegant indie pop to North Texas this spring. Perfume Genius (nee Mike Hadreas) is set to play in Denton at Dan’s Silverleaf March 26. Tickets are $10 in advance and $13 at the door. The show is presented by Spune.

In this video, he delivers a quiet performance of his 2010 song “Lookout, Lookout.” This should give you an idea of his live show.

WATCH: Adam Tyler’s “Like a Drug;” Xiu Xiu’s “Hi;” Perfume Genius’ “Hood”

Adam Tyler dropped one of my favorite albums last year with Shattered Ice and is now doing the campaign bit for his next single “Like a Drug.” The Electroqueer Tour headliner gets way sexy with his new, dark video for the song that debuted today. He’s addicted to the ladies and the men in the clip and doesn’t leave much to the imagination with lyrics like “I need you up inside of me.” Hey, now.

I think the vid is kinda cool, but I’m disappointed the song was edited to a PG-13 level. They clipped his bridge down to safer, but still sexy, overtones. You can read the entire lyrics here.

Xiu Xiu doesn’t disappoint with their new video for “Hi.” They released the single earlier this month, but Xiu Xiu’s visuals are always a must. Even if they don’t make sense. And they don’t here. With seemingly random imagery of queer frontman Jamie Stewart eating fruit off of trees to someone displaying the art of pyrotechnics on their own hand, nothing ever seems to go together, and yet, it’s hard to stop watching. In a Warholian sense, they make the everyday object into something absurd and/or fascinating. “Hi” may not have a lot of cohesion behind it, but it’s a lot better than having to watch this video.
