Lydia Lunch Retrovirus


Lydia Lunch, the glorious jet black haired-flowing, sex-dripping raspy-voiced, red lipstick-smeared, hot-as-fuck punk/no wave/noise/spoken word goddess, eternally reigning royal Queen of the sonic brutarians and undying treasure to the world at large, has been delighting and terrorizing throngs the last several years backed by her sick, ass-tight gang of NYC-based iconoclastic thugs, Retrovirus. Ridiculously legendary and quintessentially “New York,” the delicious Lunch summoned fellow brutarians, Flying Luttenbachers’ Weasel Walter, Tim Dahl of Child Abuse and Sonic Youth/Pussy Galore pummeler Bob Bert to help her burn it clean with a career-spanning live show. And that they do. In the hot-assed summer sun, Lunch and her goons will take on cuts from Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, 8-Eyed Spy, 13.13 and Shotgun Wedding. Faces will surely be ripped.
