KMFDM

When: Mon., Aug. 17 2015

From Nine Inch Nails to The Prodigy, industrial rock and techno owe much to KMFDM. But despite all the band's sturm und drang, leader Sascha Konietzko clearly has a sense of humor, albeit a wickedly Germanic one. Take the band's name, an acronym for kein Mehrheit für die Mitleid, which translates to "no pity for the majority." Weary of explaining that to American journalists, Konietzko began telling interviewers it stands for "Kill Mother Fucking Depeche Mode," a misconception that persists to this day. KMFDM is currently touring behind its newly released Salvation EP, and you can catch them tonight at Summit Music Hall (1902 Blake St., Denver, thesummitmusichall.com). Showtime is 8, tickets are $25/advance, $28/door. — Bill Forman
