Posted by: Kitten Power

Peaches, The Powerstation, Auckland, September 24

There is only one word that can aptly describe a Peaches show.  Hot.  The woman just oozes sex. 
The first lady of bisexuality, born in Canada with the unlikely name Merrill Nisker, started the show by demanding complete darkness.  When the lights hit she was revealed balancing on the drumkit wearing what looked like a giant pink puffy pumpkin […]
