Wednesday 13 (aka, Joseph Poole) and his band of the same name might be one of the most high-energy, “get out of your seats and move, motherfuckers,” fun, heavy ‘n’ roll -themed bands out there at the moment. We had the chance to catch their show last week, and we also scored an interview with the man himself.
Check out our interview with Wednesday 13 in the player on this page.
On the table for discussion were such topics as the latest album, Condolences, where things stand with the next album, which horror movies actually scared Wednesday 13, Murderdolls, and a few other things before we closed with a quick discussion about.
As for the show, if there has ever been a band too big for a stage, it was Wednesday 13 at the venue we saw them at, Foufounes Electrique. Five guys, equipment, and a larger-than-life stage presence, it’s surprising the stage could contain it all. The sound was huge and crystal clear despite the tiny venue. If the excellent use of lights set the macabre mood, then the use of props to accent the lyrical content rounded everything out very nicely.
Support came from Graveyard Strippers and Screaming Demons.
If Wednesday 13 is coming to a venue near you, I suggest you go check them out. They offer big value for your dollar. If you like fun, horror-themed macabre rock, and a big arena sound in an intimate setting, you can’t go wrong. You can find upcoming tour dates here.
