Peaches

When: Fri., Oct. 19, 9 p.m. 2012

Before Karen O., M.I.A., and Lady Gaga, Peaches shocked everyone. Her single "Fuck the Pain Away" brought electroclash into the mainstream when it came out in 2000. Now 45, Peaches is still spewing her overtly sexual lyrics over chopped electronic mash-ups and post-punk beats. It's part riot-girl and part Berlin nightclubbing, and while most people only know the aforementioned track, Peaches has five albums from which to draw material for her live set. Expect a campy performance -- she's been pictured on tour wearing a dress covered in plush nipples and known to incorporate burlesque into her show -- but Peaches will also stay true to her DIY roots of rapping and singing over a beatbox. Commemorating the anniversary of music and technology collective blasthaus, Peaches performs with the Bay Area's own electro-funk band Planet Booty and electro house outfit Girls N Boomboxes at 103 Harriet (103 Harriet St., San Francisco) on Friday, Oct. 19. 9 p.m., $22.50. 1015.com Before Karen O., M.I.A., and Lady Gaga, Peaches shocked everyone.
