If you wonder what to expect from a Princess Goes show in 2024, you will get SUPERGROUP Peter Yanowitz (drums and things), Matt Katz-Bohen (keyboards, guitars, and things), and Michael C. Hall (vocals and things) at the TOP of their game. Take a listen to the video for audio from the Atlanta Terminal West show. While you listen, enjoy the hard-earned fun photos from the show from me and Leah Yetter, Photographer.

As a background, I first found Peter when I was young listening to bands like solo Natalie Merchant, the Wallflowers, and then in the 2014 Hedwig and the Angry Inch Broadway revival show I saw with Michael C. Hall starring, AND in the shows that I saw on the touring version of Hedwig as well.  I only recently realized that I have seen Peter EVERY TIME I have seen Hedwig live! I didn’t know it, but this is also how I know Matt Katz-Bohen as he was also involved in the touring company of Hedwig.  Matt has also been touring with the juggernaut Blondie since 2008.

Anyone who knows me knows that I have been following Michael C. Hall since the time I found out about him from my friend who dressed him in Cabaret in the ‘90’s.  I was always an HBO & Showtime subscriber for the big shows back then like Sex and the City, the Sopranos, & Queer As Folk. Much to my surprise, Michael C. Hall showed up playing David Fisher in one of my top 3 tied for the best shows ever made, to this day, “Six Feet Under.” I watched it and subsequently my favorite vigilante serial killer, Dexter, religiously, back before there was streaming and one had to WAIT a week for each episode!!!  The horror! Anyway, as an eccentric theatre student living an alternative lifestyle in the early ‘90’s, of course Hedwig and the Angry Inch became my favorite rock opera.

I always wanted to see John Cameron Mitchell in the role, but when they revived the show on Broadway, I was determined to see Michael C. Hall in the role.  I went to see the show on a Megabus from Atlanta to New York on Halloween with my old friend of 30 years now, dressed in costume.  I met Michael and Peter for the first time that night waiting outside the Belasco Theatre. After following Michael’s career for so long, I was thrilled to find out that he had teamed up with his fellow Angry Inch band members to form what is no doubt one of the best groups to form in recent times. 

The energy, beats, and lyrics that come out of this creative team keep me dancing, moving, and feeling elevated.  It is hard to categorize their sound, but they have tried with the term “gothidelic rocktronic” to which I would add “DANCEFUNKWIZARDRY” (see the end for a related haiku for the boys)!! I have to watch myself at the shows NOT screaming at Peter the whole time. He and Matt’s sorcery has an immediate effect on my body and soul and captured me from the first note I ever heard them play live with Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum the last time they came to Atlanta. The sounds they make as a trio, coupled with the lyrics that Mike adds, make for an experience you just have to catch to understand.

Terri (hereafter referred to as “T”):       (with the sounds of the Ocean in the background) As an artist, how is the cruise for you all?

Garrett (hereafter referred to as “G”):   It’s good! It’s good because you get to connect with other artists. I’m going to be on tour with Tropidelic all Summer, so it’s good to hear them for the first time. They sound dope.

T:        They are so good.

G:        But yeah. It’s also really good to reconnect with the 311 guys, too, because, you know, we toured with them a lot over the years.

T:        I know you have. I’ve been there!

G:        Oh yeah!? Where are you from? 

T:        Georgia. Atlanta mostly.

G:        Oh, Yeah. We have been there a few times!

T:        And my photographer and I were at Red Rocks in 2013. But the Will Call gave us issues, so we missed your set and were severely pissed. Leah Yetter, our photographer, loves you, too, so we were just devastated.

G:        Oh, no!

T:        Yeah, I was ready to hurt someone at the Box Office that day, but we got it worked out by the time Cypress Hill came on.

G:        (laughs) Oh, no! That was a 311 show at Red Rocks?

T:        Yeah. You, Cypress Hill and 311.

G:        Wow. That was a few years back!

T:        Ten years ago, now!

G:        Awe, shit, yeah! That tour was cool. But, yeah, this cruise is great. That’s the main thing…we get to connect with other musicians and stuff and, like, collaborations…

T:        Tropidelic. That will be sweet! I first found them at 311 Day 2020 after all my friends had told me to watch for them. 

(We then went on to look at some photos from Concert Sutra in 2005 at the old Buckhead Roxy and a 2003 handbill from the 311, G. Love, and Something Corporate Atlanta show. Garrett was nice enough to sign some things for me, and I in turn signed one of my roller derby trading cards for him and gave him some copies of the photos for his collection. I love that he said he remembered the photos that we showed him in the Green Room so many years back.)

T:        Tell us something about yourself that isn’t on your public/social media/Wikipedia/online representation.

G:        That’s kind of a tough question. (laughs) I don’t know, for me, like family is everything right now in my life. Kelsey, my wife, and I have three little boys, Louis, Garrett Cass, and June. That is where all of the focus is at home. On the road, the focus is to keep grindin’ out here to provide for my family. 

T:        Is there some kind of weird animal on your property that they may be surprised to hear about?

G:        Who?

T:        Anyone! Your fans! Hopefully, someone reading this interview when it comes out… (both laugh)

G:        Oh! We had some goats and chickens during the COVID years, and when I hit the road, we had to rehome all of our livestock, because it was all just too much for Kelsey to deal with alone. But yeah! It’s all about the family. We’re in a great place, so that has led to some great music. A lot more of my writing now is more about…if you go through my catalog there are a lot of ups and downs. You’re basically telling the story of your life with all your records, so there’s a lot of break up songs and relationship songs over the years. I am happy to have finally found the right person in my life. That changed everything, including my songwriting. One of the songs I really like is called “She’s The Rock,” which I wrote for Kelsey on -not the latest record- my previous record The Juice, which is the Grammy nominated record. That’s a song I really love to play. It’s funny because now I don’t feel the same about singing those break up songs. I’d rather sing about the love I have for her and our family and just straight up just like everything else in the world. No more breakup songs! That’s been a good change!

T:        For sure, when your life starts to balance it really makes a difference!

G:        Yeah, it’s great!

T:        What is your recommendation for people going to Philly that they should check out that is one of those best kept secrets? (he laughs) Spill it!

G:        Well, I don’t live in Philly right now, but it is a great city. It’s always an underdog city between places like New York, DC, and Boston as far as big (North) East Coast cities. It’s a great place and because it’s more affordable, there’s still a really vibrant creative scene there with artists, musicians, architects, and stuff like that. I don’t know, it’s cool to walk around South Street…it is a great walkable city, so it’s fun to walk all around the downtown area and then of course you have to get a cheesesteak or a hoagie. OR you could get some cannolis at Isgro Pastries in South Philly. Jim’s Steaks is where I grew up. That’s where I was raised…that was our neighborhood hoagie and cheesesteak place. It’s pretty famous, but it had a fire two years ago, so I am not sure if they are still open or not. 

T:        (Later GTS and found out that their plans are to reopen in 2023.) 

G:        But yeah. Philly’s just a great city. It’s really popping off right now!

T:        I went to the Electric Factory one time for The Urge, Deftones, and 311.

G:        Oh yeah! That’s a great place to see a show.

On June 14, 2017 at 529, I had the extreme pleasure to sit down and have a conversation with the surprisingly soft spoken “shock rocker,” Steve Broy, a.k.a. Dr. Heathen Scum of the Mentors. The line up that night included The Mentors, The Murder Junkies, and The Rotten Stitches, all of which killed it in this very small venue. The crowd was packed and pumped! The Mentors line up was Dr. Heathen Scum on bass guitar, Sickie Wifebeater (Eric Carlson) on lead guitar, and this go around a fella going by the name of Dino Shitstain on the drums. The set list is provided after the interview. I also took some photos and video that will also be at the end of this fun read.

Concert Sutra (from here out referred to as CS):       I know you get a lot of questions about El Duce, but everyone wants to hear your stories from that time (thus the book), so I will go ahead and kick off our time with a couple of questions surrounding that time in the Mentor’s history.

Dr. Heathen Scum (from here out referred to as Dr.):            Sure! Ok. Continue reading

The Urge Family Reunion, 2013

For me, The Urge is a perfect way to celebrate Concert Sutra’s ten year anniversary, which Leah Yetter Photographer and I started in November, 2003!  On November 22nd and 23rd of 2013, The Urge held an awesome two night event at the Pageant in St. Louis, Missouri to release the first studio record in about 13 years.  Since The Urge was always one of my favorite bands in the 90’s where I learned of them as a regular opener for my band 311, I always made an effort to see them as many times as I could until they disbanded to do other things.  UNTIL RECENT YEARS!!!  One of Steve Ewing’s (the lead singer) of The Urge’s endeavors was to get into the restaurant business, particularly very creative hot dogs!  I am guessing in recent years, because of his entrepreneurship, the band mostly plays St. Louis and the surrounding Missouri areas.  Thus leaving out (with the exception of the 311 cruise and maybe a couple of other branch outs) those of us around the US, particularly me in Atlanta.  However, once I found out about the CD release of “Galvanized,” I couldn’t resist the trip from Atlanta to St. Louis to reunite with the guys I had grown to love to watch almost two decades before.  Being the awesome guys they always have been, they offered a fun and affordable VIP package, so I signed up for both nights!!!  Continue reading

In 2012, with all that I had going on leading up to my Fall wedding/Jamaican honeymoon, I decided to do something a little different at my Atlanta show.  I chose not to go through the process that is shooting from the press pit, and get back to my early 90’s roots of riding the rail at the Unity Tour 2012.  I even went by myself!  After meeting a ton of cool fanatics in line – like myself – that I had seemingly missed out on meeting in years past from dealing with the Press hustle and bustle; rushing with them all to get pit wrist bands; running to the merch to take care not to miss the special gear, I landed in my usual spot these days on the rail in front of where Tim Mahoney (guitar) performs.  It started out just like a normal show, with me setting up my equipment and getting ready to be able to take video, pictures, and audio (for personal use, of course) all at the same time.  These things are a must to be able to properly report back the events of the evening!  The very nice girl standing next to me (Sarah Huff) must have realized I was serious about my 311, and casually asked me if I was in the Familia.  Sadly, I had not been introduced to the Familia and said no, but promptly took out my iPhone, got on Facebook, and requested to join.  Before the show even started, I was able to tell her, “I am now, thanks!”  This was one of the best questions I have ever been asked, because I have realized first hand on the Unity Tour 2013 just how incredible this group called the Familia really is.  It is NOT just a Facebook group that sucks you in, makes you want to check it every five minutes, and drive up your friend numbers!  Although, it does all of that…  I have found myself asking what happened to the non-311 status updates in my newsfeed, and I love it-especially since I have been know as the girl obsessed with 311 for 19 years now!!!  I realize that I missed out on the start of the Familia due to the attention it takes to plan your own awesome wedding/honeymoon, AND have missed all three cruises AND Pow Wow from having to save every penny to help do it up and party and celebrate in style with our friends and family.  CLICK HERE to watch our awesome “Do You Right” wedding music video!

In 2013, however, my 311 obsession has started to get back to normal.  Due to some medical issues I had to overcome, moving into a corporate job, starting to referee in a new roller derby league, and working hard to lose over 120 pounds (so far), the Concert Sutra has gotten backed up.  PRIORITIES, PEOPLE!  But, early on in the year, I decided that since 2013 is a milestone birthday for me (40 and feeling great) in October, I would start marking off of my bucket list, and so far, I am rocking that right along!  The first item that came to mind was that I had never seen 311 at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado.  If you have never heard of or seen pictures of this place, CLICK HERE for Leah Yetter Photographer’s beautiful photo gallery.  I have always wanted to go see 311 there, and since Leah is now living and working in Wyoming, (and since I promised she was my first vacation after the wedding) it just seemed logical to plan the vacation around 311.  OBVIOUSLY!  Then, it all started to come together.

311’s Universal Pulse

Every time that my favorite band comes out with a new album, I get all nervous and excited all at the same time!  I can’t wait to sit alone with the lyrics, read along as I listen, and just enjoy.  The nerves come from the same anticipation that I get when I am about to shoot photos of them at their concerts.  Butterflies and all!  Nick Hexum (vocals and guitar), SA Martinez (vocals and special effects), Chad Sexton (drums), P-Nut (bass), and Tim Mahoney (guitar) have not made an album yet that I did not like, and their 2011 release, Universal Pulse is no different.  I knew from the first song, “Time Bomb” that I would love Universal Pulse.  This time, unlike in the past, I ordered my copy (CD and vinyl) on a pre-sale set up by the band.  However, once the actual day came for the album to ‘drop,’ I didn’t feel right not picking a copy up from one of my favorite local record stores, so I went there, too!  311 usually offers a special keepsake with their records that are bought the day they go on sale, and this year it was a free limited edition lenticular hologram of the album cover.  Of course, I couldn’t resist!

“Time Bomb” is a classic 311 dancehall rock jam.  Seems like another awesome message and sort of another ode to their fans… “Let me introduce you to the excitable crew!  This is just how we do.  Tickin’ like a time bomb…watch, we go off!”  SA and Nick’s harmonies are on point throughout Universal Pulse, which always gets a crowd going.

On May 5, 2011, the girls of Concert Sutra came together again at the Masquerade in Atlanta, Georgiato FINALLY catch those English blokes who call themselves Echo and the Bunnymen, having waited for them to come back to Atlantaafter cancelling on us in 2009.  After the let down of missing them then, we were overjoyed when we showed up this year at the Masquerade and saw the tour busses and a packed house with almost no teenagers!  Echo’s lineup on this 2011 tour included Ian McCullough (the sassiest lead singer in all of the UK), Will Sergeant (bad ass guitar), Gordy Goudie (guitar with the coolest name), Stephen Brannan (unbelievable bass), Paul Fleming (old school keyboards), and Nick Kilroe (to die for drums).  The show primarily consisted of the band’s first two studio album releases, Crocodiles and Heaven Up Here, along with some extra gems during the encores.  Before Echo and the Bunnymen even showed their faces, they pumped out enough fog to throw a Halloween party in Times Square!  The only downside to that, other than the difficulty breathing, was that when they made it to the stage, you could hardly see their faces for all of the fog!  AND, don’t get me started about the lighting at the Masquerade!!  Trying to get a decent photograph of these guys in this venue (even with Leah’s brand new addition to the Concert Sutra family, the fabulous new Canon 60D) was like me struggling to capture Bauhaus in the purposeful darkness of the Tabernacle with any camera!  Needless to say, during the first part of the show, while the band was jamming out “Going Up” and “Stars Are Stars,” poor Leah was busy shooting silhouettes!  She was hungry for some rich and vibrant photos since it was our first time together at a show in a very long time, so she didn’t give up that easily.  Be sure to check out Leah’s photo gallery at, because we worked very hard for every single shot in there!  This was no cake walk!  I was able to catch a little video on my little Canon Elph while we were up front shooting, which can be found on the Concert Sutra You Tube channel, or by clicking here Echo and the Bunnymen on the Concert Sutra You Tube channel.  Please check it out and feel free to comment and let us know what you think!  We have started trying to get some amateur video clips that we would like to feature here on the site, so we want to hear from you and get some feedback!

One of my favorite bands, !!! (chk chk chk) made us all happy in the Fall of 2010 when they released their latest album called  Strange Weather, Isn’t It? just in time for my birthday!! !  Since their debut self-titled studio album in 2001, !!! has produced nothing but quality work.  After the 2007 release of the awesome Myth Takes record, I was not surprised to hear that their sound just keeps getting tighter and tighter!  It is hard to imagine an album that can stand up next to Myth Takes, because it is such a fantastic collection of songs, but Strange Weather, Isn’t It? holds its own in a major way.  I knew I loved this new release within the first few measures.

In true !!! form,  Mario Andreoni (guitar), Dan Gorman (horns/percussion/keys), Nic Offer (vocals), Tyler Pope (bass/various electronic devices), and Allan Wilson (horns/percussion/keys) , Shannon Funchess (vocals), Sean McGahan (various electronic devices/sound manipulation), Paul Quattrone and Jerry Fuchs (drums) kick off the new album with a lively, bouncing beat in “AM/FM.”  Continue reading
