What to Do Tonight: Lords of Acid

During the heyday of the late-’80s/early-’90s club scene, few bands blurred acid-house, rock & roll swagger, a dark sense of humor, and carnal obsession like Lords of Acid. Go to any fetish night or scan a dominatrix’s iPod and you’ll likely find at least one Lords of Acid track on the playlist (probably “Rough Sex,” “I Sit on Acid,” or “The Crablouse”). Over the course of 19 years and five albums, the Belgian group led by Praga Khan has explored many musical avenues, but its work is defined by one theme: Let your body take control. Khan is the Lords’ main force in the studio, but onstage they’re a full band. The lineup playing the Sextreme Ball tour includes guitarist Sin Quirin (who’s done time in Ministry and Revolting Cocks), singer Lacey Conner (Rock of Love), and bassist M3 (Powerman 5000). Genre mainstays My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult — whose industrial rock leans toward creepy, B-movie-inspired dance — are also part of the bill. And like Lords of Acid, they do a bang-up job adapting their studio shenanigans for concert stages. The Sextreme Ball 2010, with Lords of Acid, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, and Blownload comes to Peabody’s at 7 p.m. Tickets: $20, $17 advance. —Norm Narvaja
