Grinderman’s opening act in the North American tour, Armin Ra, broke his theremin at the New York show.  while the theremin was repaired, Shilpa Ray was personally requested by Grinderman to be the opener in the DC, Atlanta, Nashville, and Memphis shows.

she was fantastic, a girl singing and screaming with only her harmonium for accompaniment. Shilpa’s voice goes from wounded to growling in the same verse; mesmerizing.
later in the set she got the crowd to clapping and OOOooooOOoooo along – and closed by informing us in the audience that “Grinderman was fucking awesome and she was going to get wasted and watch them with us”.
a girl after my own heart

  1. Oooh, the harmonium… Wookie Girl wants to buy a theremin and learn to play it. I was thinking about getting her one for Christmas.
