MCs the good Doctors Dolomite and Adventure were–pardon the French–just f*#king crazy! But it was The Vox Illuminati who stole the show. Their lead on vocal and guitar, the sex glammy VOX, who bears a physical resemblance to Iggy Pop (can’t hurt any band!), along with a drummer, bass and also on vocals a pixie-cute girl in a silver lame bikini, truly rocked the stage.The band’s sound: a grooving combo of 60’s psychedelic with heavy overtones a la Jane’s Addiction. Playing for about an hour they come through in true rock form and hit moments of insanity, appealing to a Dionysian crowd full of Burners. The Vox Illuminati is a regular at Burning Man and Burner events. This party had that vibe-mood altering watch out! Check out other events at The House of Yes, and look for The Vox Illuminati. Hope they come out again soon!
he band The Vox Illuminati made a rare NYC appearance at The House of Yes in East Williamsburg on Friday. The event “Steal This Party Thunder Gumbo III,” included bands and DJs including this blogger’s personal fave DJ Joro Boro. Amidst the bands, a dance competition between two sexy women and later a competition between two rambunctious fiddlers peppered the night.
