The action at Thursday night’s show at The Henry Fonda in Los Angeles all led up to one single, near-indisputable truth: Anders Trentemøller is a badass. In town to promote forthcoming album Reworked/Remixed, the Danish musician/producer lead his band through a riotous two-hour set of, well…sheer musical badassery.

The show opened with the multi-piece band performing Into the Great Wide Yonder track, “The Mash and the Fury” behind a cage-like fence. As the track built in intensity, the lightshow kicked in. It was the start of a visually visceral show that would include strobe lights, fog, video projects (including a strutting Bettie Page) and several female singers that would appear and disappear behind screens.

While the majority of the show was given over to goth/industral-lite dance music (creating a spooky Halloween-like atmosphere that was echoed by several costumed attendees), it was no case of a one-tricky pony, songs such as the spooky paean to longing “…Even Though You’re With Another Girl,” and the insane Dick-Dale-on-acid refrains of “Silver Surfer, Ghost Rider Go!!!” creating a startlingly effecting ebb and flow to the night’s soundscape.

A refreshing change from many electronic-based acts, the majority of the sound was created through live instruments—band members exchanging places to pound on multiple forms of percussion, strum guitars, bash keys, and play some shockingly delicate xylophone-based refrains. It was a thrilling, all encompassing performance, where Goths, rave fans, and indie kids all elated. A master class in leaving it all on the stage.
