Brazilian Girls @ the Fillmore (5/13/06)

Kevin Keating
Last night the Brazilian Girls performed at the Fillmore in San Francisco to what I thought was going to be a sold-out crowd, but I don't think the venue was completely full. I also thought that the show was going to start at 8pm, but instead, the doors didn't open until nearly 8.30. And instead of an opening band, there was a DJ spinning music for nearly 2 hours. When the band finally came on, it was close to 10.30.

Now for those of you who aren't familiar with the Brazilian Girls, there's really only one girl in the band -- the lead singer, Sabina Sciubba -- and no one is from Brazil... The other members of the band include:
  • Didi Gutman - keyboards
  • Jesse Murphy - bass
  • Aaron Johnston - drums
There are a number of biographies on the band online and I keep reading about Sabina's use of masks. Last night was no exception as she came out wearing a white veil over her face for most of the night. Only towards the end of the night did she lift the veil just a bit to show her nose and mouth, but she never did expose her eyes. I took a few pictures with my camera phone and posted them on Flickr here.

Anyway, the show was great. Tons of people dancing along with the music -- which can only be described as a strange mix of electronica, jazz and reggae with a little downtempo lounge music in between.

For those of you interested, here's their video to the song "Don't Stop"
