Warpaint Live in San Francisco, California

Warpaint played at the Independent last night in San Francisco. I was hooked a few years back with the below demo - hooked since they were merely just another LA garage band - albeit with John Frusciante (formerly of the Red Hot Chile Peppers) as a their record producer and the actress Shannon Sossaman as their drummer (by the way, they're new drummer Stella Mozgawa is simply incredible). It also worth it to mention that all members of Warpaint are all stunningly gorgeous, but with a certain sensuality that makes you take them seriously - their tremendous musical talent demands notice.  A  little bit Black Sabbath meets The Virgin Suicides, Warpaint closed the show with a 15 minute long encore that had most of the band in a trance they couldn't figure out how to get out of - which was awkward, but entertaining, because did anyone really want them to stop?  Warpaint has released two official albums, the most recent, The Fool, came out on Rough Trade Records last October.
