Do you feel the cream? Frankly, we do, cause we're still on quite the high after catching our beloved queen of electroclash, Peaches, for the third time this yeah, we're feeling all sorts of rad. The hardest touring woman in music brought her dynamic, and revitalized, new stage show through Terminal 5 last Saturday, November 14, with all sorts of tricks and treats up her leotarded sleeves.

After having caught Ms. Merrill Nisker twice earlier this summer, it was both a shock and a pleasure to hear the announcement of her return to NYC this fall. With her 4th studio album, I Feel Cream, coming out nearly 6 months ago, Peaches continues to tour in support of the finely crafted release.

To attend a Peaches gig is like watching a theatrically and intensely masterminded musical. Between props and costumes, interactions with fans and backing band members, there's never a second for your thoughts to stray or be distracted.

Highlights of the show included an extended sequence of scaling the barrier and crowd surfing, an adjusted performance of Lose You, moving a Beaston favorite, Operate, to the first encore, and overall, witnessing the genuine love and passion Peaches has for putting on a rocking show.

A couple more pics below, and others can be seen here.

I have to make a quick editor's note here about this final picture. After the traditional "get out of the photo pit after 3 songs" rules kicked in at the venue, I scrambled to find a decent spot to shoot the remainder of the show. Thanks to a helping hand from Peaches' tour manager (more on that later), I was able to hit the side of the stage for one song. Why is this so relevant/important (aside from the pretty rad tricolored separation)?

Peaches' birthday is November 11. Now, look at the time stamp on the stage clock.
