Venomentality is a band of four I came across on MySpace by stealing Friends from others. They are: Valerie Webb (songwriter, guitar, vocals, saxophone, piano, ASCAP Member), Peter Kansas (lead guitar), Kristin Hoeg (bass), and Ben Zeigler (drums).
And this is what it was like to see them play live!

Checking, connecting, tuning
Valerie introduces New York City to Venomentality!
They begin with Behind Black Eye Liner
Getting into it big time!

Close up: See Ben’s hair move!
Valerie just singing…
… impressing the audience
They move with their music!

Valerie on guitar — and her voice!
Battle of the electric guitars!
Kristin watches Valerie mesmerize the audience
And then it’s all over! Too soon! Peter leaves the stage first.

Ben with his beaten drums!
Kristin shares a moment with her Mom
They pose for Virgin photos …
… too far away from me!
Ben has a fan!
Kristin passes by
My specialty: Photos without faces!
Kristin and Valerie hydrating
Valerie looking towards the future?
Hurrah! I get all four to pose for me…
… but Ben figures out who I am …
… and screams in sheer terror!!!
But I’ve been screamed at before, so it doesn’t work!
Kristin, Ben, Peter, and Valerie
Venomentality: Remember that name!
“Valerie, who was that guy?”
“I don’t know, Peter. Some creep with a camera!”
My specialty: Backs, no faces!
The audience loved them. Mink, the band they opened for, loved them too! Hit their MySpace page to listen to their tunes. They just added a new one: Losing Control.
Great news! If you missed Venomentality Sunday, you have another chance to see them this Thursday!! They’ll probably be on the same stage I saw Juliette and the Licks!
