In terms of shtick and absurdity, Zombie and Cooper share the same sensibilities. The former's sense of humor isn't necessarily always as obvious as his love for horror-movies and comic art. But last night, it elevated the set beyond kitsch and spectacle.

Personal Bias: My introductions to both Alice Cooper and White Zombie came courtesy of Beavis and Butt-head.

"Preach on, Brother Alice":

"How come these guys are never on TV? They should play this video all day long." and "Herman Munster is cool."


Alice Cooper: "School's Out" "No More Mr. Nice Guy" "Wicked Young Man" "Ballad of Dwight Fry" "Go To Hell" "Cold Ethyl" "Poison" "From the Inside" "Nurse Rozetta" "Be My Lover" "Only Women Bleed" (something missing?) "Vengeance Is Mine "Dirty Diamonds" "Billion Dollar Babies" "Killer" "Feed My Frankenstein" "Under My Wheels"

Encore: "I'm Eighteen"
