Lydia Lunch RetrovirusLYDIA LUNCH | WEASEL WALTER | TIM DAHL | KEVIN SHEA

LYDIA LUNCH RETROVIRUS: AN ALL-STAR CAST OF SONIC BRUTARIANS IN A NO-HOLDS-BARRED SURVEY OF HER MUSICAL OUTPUT FROM 1977 TO THE PRESENT.

Including music from 8 Eyed Spy, Queen of Siam, 1313, Shotgun Wedding and Big Sexy Noise

Lydia Lunch has spent decades trolling through the sub/terranean sick-home black & blues creating a schizophrenic musical legacy which loops from shrill No Wave to bludgeoning Hard Rock, from smoky Jazz Noir and illustrated word to macabre Psychedelia.

Weasel Walter is best known as the founder of the cult punk jazz/no wave/brutal prog band, The Flying Luttenbachers. Mr. Walter has 
also worked with other experimental rock groups like XBXRX, Behold The Arctopus, 
Burmese and Lake Of Dracula. As an improviser, Mr. Walter has performed with Evan Parker, Marshall Allen, Elliott Sharp, Peter Evans, Henry Kaiser, Mary Halvorson, Nels Cline, Jim O'Rourke and Vinny Golia.

Tim Dahl is a composer and professional electric and double bass player, vocalist, keyboardist and composer living in New York City. He is best known as the front man and bass player of the noise-rock band Child Abuse and the defunct avant-jazz group The Hub. He also writes and performs for the jazz ensemble Pulverize The Sound. Dahl has toured extensively throughout North America, Europe and Japan, and performed with many notable musicians, composers and performers including Yusef Lateef, Archie Shepp, Eugene Chadbourne, John Zorn, Marc Ribot, Elliot Sharpe, Tatsuya Yoshida and Stanley Jordan.

Kevin Shea started his training in elementary school and continued steadily through his college years at Berklee College of Music and subsequent graduation from New School. Theglobal community first took notice of Shea back in the mid ’90s with cult avant trio Storm & Stress on Touch and Go Records. Since then he has maintained a relentlessly prolific presence internationally with countless projects in the Rock, Avant-Garde and Jazz genres — including work with God Is My Co-Pilot, Mostly Other People Do The Killing, Great Lakes, Rhys Chatham, Talibam!, David Taylor, People (with Mary Halvorson) and ALPHAWHORE (featuring Chris Cochrane and Gordon Beeferman). Village Voice named him 2012’s Best Drummer in NYC. In 2021, Shea moved to Germany after receiving Moers Festival’s 14th annual Improvisor In Residence scholarship. He now resides in Brooklyn.

Foie Gras
Foie Gras is unabashedly loud and mystic, gentle and soft. Guitar driven, she lives at the intersections of secure drone and reimagined Americana, as if Brian Eno and Patsy Cline have committed themselves to an endless and passionate love affair. Wake up, this is where your daughters have wandered off to.

Lolly Gaggers
The Bay Area’s Lolly Gaggers are a snarling, gallows-humorous all queer post-punk group influenced by no-wave noise, 90s punk, rockabilly, and deathrock.
