Last night I stopped by Barrel O' Fun in Austin to check out Alice Cooper tribute band, Pretties for You. I noticed the event on Facebook and the theatrical look to this band caught my attention. Of course, I was there with camera in hand to snap some shots. I love shooting live music and when you add in some theatrics it's a real treat for me. Perfect for a Friday the 13th rock show.
Front woman "Aliz" put on a scorching high energy performance that would surely make Alice proud. Her portrayal included a number of wardrobe changes that covered Alice's varying stage personas. Pretty yet nightmarish, sensual but sinister, fun and a little freaky...a top notch female performance of the great Alice Cooper.
Aliz was backed by a girlish (or is that ghoulish?) band with a female lineup except for guitarist Ozzy. This band is all-in for their Alice Cooper tribute with full skeleton skin (that sounds weird to say) suits and makeup. A few skeletons and doll heads complete the spooky stage set.
All photos were taken with a Fujifilm X00F in Acros film simulation with either native lens or TCL-X100II conversion lens. More shots from the show can be found on my gallery site.
Until next time, my pretties...
