For the LOVE of the Cult

For the LOVE of the Cult
House of Blues - Chicago, IL, USA - September 2, 2009
by Jackie Lee King

The Cult, as with many other artists currently touring, are giving fans a treat in that they are featuring a specific album and playing it cover to cover live. The record in question is their iconic release "LOVE." The band was a little late getting to the stage, and the opening song (track one, side one) "Nirvana" seemed a little sluggish, but the rest of the first set was a perfect memory of 1985.

The Goth Rock scene was well represented, but upon the completion of the first set, about 40 people left the audience. Granted, this was a show nearing the venue's capacity, and their presence wasn't missed, but the tone of the evening took a sharp nosedive into vehemence as the band came back to the stage to play their more metal music.
