.""The glam-influenced avant-garde pop band Brilliant Pebbles delivered the show's quirkiest and strangest performance, but the band was always compulsively watchable. The Polish immigrant Monika Bukowska (she was dressed like a flapper from the future) utterly commanded the stage with her droning vocals (which sounded a bit like Siouxsie Sioux crossed with Lene Lovich) and exciting daredevil stage antics.She seemed to be willing to try almost anything to get a rise out of the audience. And her unusual and exotic vocals went well with Sam Ng's off-kilter keyboard playing, James Kennedy's solid bass lines and Philip Montoro's propulsive drumming."-Southtownstar/SunTimes News Group, " Brilliant Pebbles clashes cultures, colors and fashion in a giddy, Gypsy-arcade assault on your senses." --Time Out Chicago " the simplest description of the adjective-magnet ensemble might be neon baroque. Mixing fluorescent sounds with a positively lurid visual appearance, Brilliant Pebbles live their name in the fullest."-Chicago Weekly
