The Love Kills show is the second installment in Die Laughing Records/Chicanery Chick Records collaboration with Stiky Graffix, and the Emerald Stage via Twitch.Tv. The female-themed show highlights the label launch of Die Laughing Records subsidiary label, Chicanery Chick Records and is presented by Stiky Graffix.
“Chicanery Chick Records is the brain child of mine and my partner Dave Dalton,” says Jillian Elizabeth, A&R Representative for Die Laughing Records. “There is a great need for a woman-based label and we feel this will scratch an itch in the industry. The ‘Love Kills’ theme comes from my favorite anti-romance couple Sid and Nancy, and hat tip to the overly sentimental Valentines holiday. People need live music, and we plan on continuing to bring themed streams throughout 2021.”
The Love Kills line up includes Die Laughing Records artists The Hellflowers and Hot Laundry. Also on the bill are The Checkered Hearts which features Hillary Burton, from the band honeychain (also on the DLR label) along with her musical partner, Lisa Mychols. Headlining the night is Vice Squad and Nikki Corvette, with special guest Ricky Rat.
