If you're fortunate enough to hold a golden ticket to this long-sold-out show, legendary Belgian act Front 242 are more than worth braving the crowds. Co-pioneering the EBM (electronic body music) subgenre in the early 1980s alongside bands like Absolute Body Control and DAF, Front 242 paired mechanical, repetitive precision, mock-evangelist and militarist samples, and grimy, pulsating synths. Their dance-floor-oriented mutant strain of industrial music reached cult underground popularity later that decade. Moving from a more abstract electronic sound with 1983 debut full-length Geography to a deeper dance chart-reaching sound that birthed master hits like "Headhunter" and “Tragedy for You,” Front 242's decadent, degenerate sound is enjoying a resurgence with today's rising interest in EBM and industrial-dance music.
