DOWNLOAD: Shilpa Ray & Her Happy Hookers - "Venus Shaver" (MP3)

Shilpa Ray & Her Happy Hookers at SXSW 2010 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Shilpa Ray

Shilpa Ray & Her Happy Hookers have a new LP on the way called Teenage & Torture, but it won't surface until Jan 11, 2011 (via Knitting Factory Records). So to sate your taste for everything-Hookers, Shilpa Ray will release the new 7" Venus Shaver, on sale in mid-October. The 7" features the title track (downloadable above) and a b-side called "Natural Selection". Check it out.

In the meantime Shilpa Ray will take her act out for a pair of (known) CMJ shindigs, the Distiller showcase on 10/22 at Knitting Factory and the Windish showcase on 10/23 at Arlene's Grocery. On the non-CMJ tip, Shila Ray will also hit Pianos on 11/3 with Hooray for Earth, Arpline, and Zambri.

The Pianos show is part of a residency for Hooray for Earth who has different openers on four November shows at the LES venue. Tickets are on sale for all of them.

All dates and the 7" art is below.

Poor little put-upon Clint Underhill! Life is so mean at him! From now on, let there only be photos of ventriloquists and mimes.

But hooray for new Shilpa Ray.

What's your problem, Clit Underbite - that Ray's actually doing something with her life?
