Lords of Acid and Praga Khan

March 15 • 20th Century Theatre

They say Heaven Is an Orgasm. They say Expand Your Head. They say they have the Greatest T*ts.

And so many more orgasmic delights: vaginas, cocks, LSD hits, hot licks, strippers, Punk, Disco … everything danceable, headbangable and arousing. Hailing from the shadows of Belgium, the Lords of Acid is a sexually charged collective led by Industrial/Techno freak Praga Kahn. The Acid maestro and his beloveds have been seducing nightclubs since 1988, when the Lords released “I Sit on Acid,” a hypnotic, Trance-soaked single flecked with the mantra “I wanna sit on your face.”

Four studio albums full of sex bombs followed that single, but the band hasn't released a new one since 2000. While Lords' last release was a 2003 hits (wait, “tits”) compilation, Kahn has released solo records, the last being Soundscraper. Those records are more mind-expanding than leg-spreading, but they still serve up hot House riffs perfect for the flickering embers of a rave.

Kahn's sex drive is looking up, though. Last year’s Lords of Acid tour was the first in several years, with a lineup that included Lacey Conner, an ill-willed plaything from Bret Michaels' TV series Rock of Love. This year’s SonicAngel tour — a hype machine (one big orgy?) for a forthcoming record, according to Kahn's Twitter feed — comes to Cincinnati Tuesday with DJ Mea of L.A. band Me and My Machine in the vocalist/frontwoman/siren role.

Lords of Acid and Praga Khan play 20th Century Theatre Tuesday, March 15 with guests Angelspit and Radical G.
