The Bloody Beetroots Live at Governors Ball (Event Review)


Last weekend, at Randall's Island's Governors Ball, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo took the stage with friends, Edward Grinch & Battle. The 60 minute performance by The Bloody Beetroots Live was one of the most energetic sets that I've ever seen. The New York festival show was the final stop on their North American tour dubbed “Chaos & Confusion.” Last Spring, The Bloody Beetroots played the main stage at New York's Electric Daisy Carnival for a crowd of ravers and college party-goers. For this year's Big Apple appearance (roughly 9 months after the album release of “Hide”) the crowd had an indie / hippy feel, but the intensity wasn't missing for a moment.


At Governors Ball, the band played most of the 15 tracks found on “Hide” including “Spank”, “Runaway”, “Chronicles of a Fallen Love”, “Rocksteady”, and a vicious performance of “Volevo Un Gatto Nero” (my neck still hurts from headbanging in the front row). The Bloody Beetroots Live is a one-of-a-kind electro-infused punk rock band that appeals to multiple generations of rocker. Sir Bob (the front man) is careful to keep one foot in the underground scene but up-and-comers such as Lets Be Friends are quick to cite The Bloody Beetroots as a massive influence on their own music. I can't wait for them to announce another North American tour and urge all electronic music fans who can handle heavy bass and fast-paced metal guitar to check these guys out as soon as possible!
