Weeping Icon are intense, with songs that communicate through hypnotic sonic manipulation and sonic severity. Lyrics like, "I'm really trying to perfect the art of screaming into a paper bag and I want to look good doing it" from the song "Control" reflect their unique, perceptive art and social commentary. A quote that stood out from the show, "We’re from the United States. Pray for us." was poignant then, and has only become more so as the days have gone on.
Sometimes you witness something and know that it’s art. This performance by Weeping Icon was one of those times.
