Peter Murphy, who recently announced a 2nd-annual "Miracula Halloween Special Event" that will take place "Halloween 2012 at a secret location in Los Angeles", just finished up a set of West Coast dates that included an LA show at the Roxy on 8/16. Check out the setlist from that gig below.

The former Bauhaus singer is heading towards Brooklyn where he'll play new Bushwick venue The Well on Sunday, August 26 with openers Crystal Stilts, Small Black and Air Waves. Tickets are still available but if you'd like to go for free we have two pairs of tickets to give away. Details are below.

No other new shows at The Well have been announced, with the rescheduled Slaughterhouse show on September 8 (tix) and Thee Oh Sees / Ty Segall on September 22 (tix) being the only other two shows remaining.

The flyer for the Peter Murphy show, his recent LA show setlist, and contest details are below...

No 'Socrates Pythagorus'? He didn't even play 'I spit Roses', the single off his newest album? Cool Bauhaus songs, strange kind of love with bela sounds cool, can't see him the 26th tho :(

Why are you all complaining about the songs he won't sing? Enjoy the other beautiful songs he sings instead! Can't wait! Love you Peter Murphy!

Yes, enough with the complaining about what he didn't play (at a show on the other side of the country) and be happy he's playing some of his great new songs (The Prince and Old Lady Shade is one of his best. ever.), he's doing a handful of Bauhaus classics and if he ends with Ziggy Stardust again, consider yourselves fortunate! That is an amazing set closer.
