Semi Precious Weapons News Archive
Life is all about growing, changing and having fun along the way!
Semi Precious Weapons is doing just that!
The New York band has slowly evolved away from their glam rock past and adopted a much more mature and pop sound. Yet this is not selling out. It's organic and cool and real.
And really good!!!
Aviation High is unlike anything Semi Precious Weapons has ever done. It's a lot more like Empire Of The Sun. And if you're into that Australian band, then you will likely be into this song!
Check it out above!
A Tennessee woman is recovering after collapsing and nearly dying at a Lady GaGa concert earlier this week.
Crystal Thornton was enjoying GaGa's opening act, Semi Precious Weapons, when she experienced a seizure and collapsed. She was unconscious and didn't have a heartbeat. The EMT on scene used a portable defibrillator and finally revived her after 5 minutes.
Her best friend Christina Tugman described what happened:
"She stopped breathing, her eyes rolled back in her head, and her body started twitching. I was asking if she was OK, and she wasn't responding."
The woman was airlifted to Vanderbilt Medical Center where doctors say her temperature was below the norm.
One of the doctors said, "if she had been at home, alone, without anybody around she would not have survived."
According to the hospital, Crystal was more concerned about missing out on GaGa, saying, "I am so mad I missed the concert."
Aw, you poor thing!
We admire your dedication, and we're sure GaGa does too, but just rest up, sweetie, and take care of yourself. There will be many more chances to see her in concert.

This outfit will really make you do a double take!
This weekend, Lady GaGa joined Semi-Precious Weapons on stage during their set at Lollapalooza wearing a head-turning nude outfit.
But don't worry she had all the necessary parts covered!
The Lolla outfit consisted of a fishnet top and fishnet leggings, which she wore over pasties and a nude sparkly panty.
Before stripping down, Gagita was wearing a vest and boots both custom made by Tom Tom as well as gold Gianfranco Ferrè sunglasses.
She killed it from head to toe!
