peachesORIGINAL: Canadian electro raunch rocker Peaches in coming to the Troc this weekend on a tour to support her latest LP. Rub is Peaches’ sixth studio album, and was supposedly created in her garage in Los Angeles with producer Vice Cooler. Pitchfork says the album “builds upon the body of work she’s accumulated in the past 15 years,” a collection of blush-worthy tunes that take on the themes of gender identity, female power, sex, sex, sex and politics.

“Peaches has always been able to use her outré, sometimes downright silly, personality to shed light on real issues, like society’s patriarchal disgust at the natural state of a woman’s body,” the critic writes. “She may be the only female pop musician working today who sings about sex while firmly and intentionally diverting the objectifying male gaze. While it may not always be pretty or elegant, it’s damn necessary, and Rub does an excellent job of it.”

The lady also puts on an excellent show. I saw her at TLA in 2009, and it was one of my wildest nights in Philly. I found myself stuck in a mosh pit up front, slamming into neon-clad, screaming fans around me as Peaches did her thing on stage. You should have the same experience — or experience it again if you were with me in 2009. I have three pairs of tickets to give away to the first three people to email me at [email protected] with the subject line “Up yours! Give me Peaches tickets!” The contest ends at midnight on Thursday, October 22nd.

Tickets are valued at $20 each. Winners will be notified via email and will be able to pick up their prizes at Will Call on the night of the show.

The concert takes place on Sunday, October 25th. Doors open at 7 pm. Her openers are L.A. rock duo Deap Valley. Find more info on the show and ticket links here.
