Peaches at Summit Music Hall, 10/13/12 (photos)

Canadian electronic musician and performance artist Peaches played a spirited set at the Summit Music Hall in Lodo on Saturday night. As theatrical as it was raunchy, Peaches and her two dancers explored love, sex, power and fat beats in the inspired, high energy set.

Mike Watt addressed the Larimer Lounge crowd rather coyly on Thursday night: “The good thing is that now we know this piece." Watt was referring to “Hyphenated-man,” a 45 minute grab bag of short, jerky tunes strung together under a theme that combines the artist Heironymous Bosch with the film “The Wizard of Oz.” His quip referred to the fact that the trio -- Watt, guitarist Tom Watson and drummer Raul Morales -- was touring the opera for the fourth time, and this was the second time that the group had played it in Denver.
