Tickets are on sale for the show Zola Jesus is playing with Effi Briest, Nice Face, Amen Dunes, and who also has shows coming up at South Street Seaport and Terminal 5 (with Wolf Parade). Check out her brand new video for "Night", off her EP Stridulum, below...

"Perhaps the most exciting challenge for me about working with the same artist on a different video is creating separate pieces that are at once unified while still exploring new aesthetic and conceptual boundaries," says video director Jacqueline Castel. "The first video that I directed for Zola Jesus was for the song "Clay Bodies," where we channeled silent films of the 1920s and Sergei Parajanov using the crumbling, decrepit landscapes of Detroit as our backdrop. "Night," in contrast, is the product of 1980s futurism via nightmares, Cocteau, and the work of pornographer Rinse Dream. While strikingly different, they each carry their own apocalyptic tone. Otherwise, it's just a bunch of smoke and mirrors."
