Naked Raygun, Paint It Black and Shot Baker play Maxwell's.
The Howl Festival presents a reading with Richard Hell at New Museum.
On the occasion of the release of newly elaborated editions of his 1973 novelina, The Voidoid (now with drawings by Kier Cooke Sandvik), published in June, and his 1983 Voidoids album (with new guitar parts added by Marc Ribot, Bill Frisell, and Ivan Julian), which is re-released September 1 as Destiny Street Repaired, Richard Hell will make a rare [?] public appearance reading from his self-bio in progress, among other works, and will sing at least one song with guitar accompaniment. Possibly other media will get play, too.Jedi Mind Tricks play Highline Ballroom with R.A. the Rugged Man and Reef the Lost Cauzer.
Desolation Wilderness and The Intelligence gig with City Center (on tour) and German Measles at Cake Shop.
