Iggy Pop @ Road Recovery Benefit in May (more by Arcadia Media)
Iggy Pop

Iggy Pop will be at the Tribeca Barnes & Noble (97 Warren St) tonight (10/13) at 7pm. He's speaking with Robert Matheu, who just wrote The Stooges: The Authorized and Illustrated Story, about the book and his life. Entry is first come, first served.

On September 11th and 12th, Iggy Pop joined Marc Ribot, Ceramic Dog, and singer Tine Kindermann at this year's Century of Song Festival (part of Germany's Ruhr Triennale), which was curated by Ribot. The set list from the first of those gigs (posted below) covers a broad range of material, from "Les feuilles de morte" (Autumn Leaves) off Pop's new album to German folk song "Schwesterlein" (Little Sister) to "I Wanna Be Your Dog" and "Mass Production" (the latter from 1977's The Idiot). Video clips from that set are posted below.

Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog are touring Europe through October. Iggy Pop and the Stooges are scheduled to play Rio in November and perform Raw Power in full at ATP's Don't Look Back shows on May 2nd and 3rd at London's Hammersmith Apollo. Also on the ATP bill are Suicide, who'll be playing their first album like they did at ATP NY. Tickets are on sale now.

Iggy Pop, as well as Pavement (who are curating the other ATP UK weekend in May), are both rumored to be in the running for ATP NY in 2010.

Dates, and above-mentioned setlist and videos are below...

I love Pavement but I think I would rather have Iggy Pop walking around the halls of Kutshers, that would be amazing

Iggy actually auditioned for the Doors after Morrison died. He was too smacked-out for it to work, however.

I'm trying not to be cynical, I really am, but who wants to see The Stooges without Ron Asheton?

Posted by Anonymous | October 13, 2009 6:29 PM

asheton was a legend no doubt, but the opportunity to hear Raw Power in it's entirety is way more important than one missing band member.

*I* wanna see Iggy and the Stooges w/ James Williamson. And so do many others...

Saggy Pop

Iggy's stuff with Williamson is the BEST Stooges.
Raw Power, "I'm Sick of You," Kill City. Iggy at his most strung out and desperate. Ron Asheton was great and all, but Williamson was a maniac.

Williamson-era Stooges rule! Metallic K.O.!
