As for the openers, Marijuana Deathsquads, I knew so little that I had no idea P.O.S. was a member. In fact ALL I knew at first was that the gal who cuts my hair knows someone (I think she said Isaac) in the band--"he's just crazy." I'll leave it to Wikipedia to explain them in detail (http://en.wikipedia.org/
Poliça also has its electronic influence, and in that way they are a good pairing (sharing also band members, as I learned, too, so that also explains that...). But where MDS would be more heavy metal (and quite literally), it would be Channy Leaneagh's altered vocals mainly representing the "electronic" in Poliça, backed by a beefy rhythm section of two drum sets and bass guitar. Channy is left, frankly, to carry the entire stage presence, and she handles it well--like an ethereal, swaying, young Audrey Hepburn. Certainly, she had the guy standing next to me completely transfixed.
