Wax Trax! Records Retrospectacle: 33 1/3 Year Anniversary Can't Post

Just wanted to make an official thread...

Well, as everyone now knows, Wax Trax! is throwing a party here in Chicago at the Metro.


The lineup for includes Front 242, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult and Rights of the Accused. En Esch, Guenter Schulz and Raymond Watts will focus on the music of KMFDM.

Luc Van Acker, Chris Connelly, former Ministry member Paul Barker and guests will perform the music of the Revolting Cocks.

I will obviously be there and if anyone else is going, please post here. Would be cool to meet up with fellow Prongers....

I'll be there. Planning to fly in on the 14th, possibly with a couple of friends. Gonna check out FIX that night, then do the Wax Trax thing, and fly home on Sunday. It would be great to meet you in person!

I'm planning on being there. Still firming up the when's and who's. Once more is concrete, we'll have to plan on meeting up.

Yes well do keep in touch regarding this. Would be great to all meet up. I would offer some space as I live a mile away from Metro but I will be hosting Barker himself but I will keep people informed of space here. However, perhaps a pre-game at my place before the shows?

I'm planning to order tickets this weekend. This is far too close and far too exciting to pass up.

Yeah, I'm jumping on tickets as soon as they go on sale. I don't know how many people The Metro holds, but if the early hype is any indication, I'm worried about it selling out. This event is gaining serious momentum for only being announced two days ago.

What is the actual date?

EDIT: Nevermind, I found it from Tenoh's thread.

I think I'll do this.

So tickets are on sale noon tomorrow, Chicago time I presume?

Fuck it, I'm doing this (if I get a ticket tomorrow). It'll be cool to revisit Chicago and see some of you heads

Wow I'm so envious of you folks living across the pond, getting to see all these 'ol skool Wax Trax greats in action. AWESOME.

If it's not too much trouble, I hope someone here can send my regards to the artiste (especially to Chris!) on behalf of the Wax Trax fans living in the far east.

Their music was like solace for us living in an overbearing & conservative environment wayback in the late 80's/90's. *misty eyed*

I await set lists

EDIT: I just had a thought. What if Connelly joined KMFDM on stage to do Rules. Thatd be a nice addition

I'm curious if Chris, Paul, and Luc were approached about performing any of their solo material. Some Lead Into Gold would be ideal. Does he even own any of the old gear/disks/tapes that he produced that material on?

Yeah, gotta get flights now too. Thankfully, Southwest is pretty cheap and has direct flights to Chicago.

This will be the 4th or 5th reunion of one kind or another that I'll have been to Metro for in the last 3 years. Folks sure is gettin' nostalgic lately.
