Teenage Jesus & the Jerks @ KF in 2008 (more by Lori Baily)
Teenage Jesus

WFMU will be putting on a three-day Brooklyn festival at the Music Hall of Williamsburg from October 1st-3rd. Its Thursday and Saturday night bills will be headlined by two classic acts, German krautrock-ers Faust and NYC No Wave punks Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, respectively, while Friday night will feature Philly's Pissed Jeans (who have a new record out) in the top spot.

TJ & the Jerks last reunited in 2008 for a night at the Knitting Factory where Thurston Moore played bass. And like Faust, they're also playing Pop Montreal around the same time.

Tickets for all three WFMU days go on sale Thursday, September 3rd at noon. Pissed Jeans is only $12 advanced. The other two are $20 each.

The station writes, "These shows will not be broadcast over the air/net." Full lineup and poster below...

Why not have it in Jersey? Why must we cross the rivers to BK.

1:29, it's clear that you have never heard any Faust. Idiot.

I missed teenage jesus and the jerks last year--will not make the same mistake this year.

I don't understand the hype around cold cave? Seriously......their synths sound like digital shit and the vocals are a blatant new order rip. I think Someone explain this to me? And they are going to be on matador?

lydia is now a man who wears a dress.

Cold Cave is one of the worst bands ever. Travesty they are opening this show.

Great looking lineups. I'm looking forward to it

Was at the Teenage Jesus show. Major major disappointment.

Get ready for a 15-18 min set.

It's actually all publicity for Lydia's nude pictorials appearing simultaneously on teethinorout.com, osteopornosis.com and dustydiddleholes.com.

Cold Cave almost put me to sleep when I saw with them with NON. Drunkdriver, Sightings and Teenage Jesus on the same bill is surreal. can't wait for this.

TV Ghost is a beast live.

i don't want to see THAT nude.

I hear that TWENT WEZNOR will be there to fuck Lydia live onstage.

Not a flattering pic of Lydia...

Posted by Anonymous | September 2, 2009 12:45 PM

I wondered who Lydia reminded me of now and then it hit me: she looks like Genesis P'Orridge's brunette sister. It's uncanny.

I'd be willing to bet that all the people ragging on Lydia Lunch in this thread all look like shit NOW, and they're in their 20s.

who cares how she looks?

if you watch kill your idols she just comes off as the worst, most pretentious, talentless whiny baby in the world

Lydia rules, inside and out. That is a terrible picture. Here are better ones, old and new. No one keeps it more real.

"if you watch kill your idols..."

Why would anyone watch that piece of shit? It was made by a guy whose entire research on No Wave came from having people right-click and save images off other websites. Notice how he hasn't come up with anything since - what a poseur!

i'm making my way over from london for lydia. heard all the rumors of disappointment from last year...but still...must.

and people might want to watch kill your idols because it's a GOOD piece of art and quite effective for what it is: a comedy on the misinterpretations of history/artistic influence. and i'm guessing the director doesn't have do much right away because the film was wildly successful here and in the States I'm sure, and rightfully so.

everyone ranking on Lydia...you FAIL! lydia is queen. and she's freaking hilarious and deadon in Kill Your Idols. such a typically misogynistic bullshit thing to do...rip a woman artist apart over her beauty rather than her talent.

2:50 you are a fucking moron

Posted by Anonymous | October 2, 2009 11:27 PM
