Lydia Lunch’s Retrovirus playing shows; Ikue Mori is too; Nicolas Jaar releasing live Teenage Jesus LP on his label

Retrovirus
Lydia Lunch

Retrovirus, no wave legend Lydia Lunch‘s project with Weasel Walter (Flying Luttenbachers, Behold… The Arctopus), Bob Bert (Sonic Youth) and Tim Dahl (Child Abuse), have some shows coming up this month and next. They play LA this weekend, two New Zealand shows in August, and NYC’s Le Poisson Rouge on August 23. Tickets for LPR are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

In related news, Nicolas Jaar will release a collection from Lydia Lunch’s former band Teenage Jesus and the Jerks on his Other People label. It’s called Live 1977-1979, and includes recordings from NYC’s Max’s Kansas City and CBGB and Toronto’s Horseshoe Tavern. That follows Other People reissuing Lydia’s Conspiracy of Women earlier this year.

Lydia isn’t the only legendary no wave musician playing LPR in August. Three days later, Ikue Mori will be there playing a collaborative set with guitar great Marc Ribot. They’ll be opening for Earth, for whom it’s the first of two NYC stops on their tour. Tickets for that show are still available, and we’re also giving away a pair on Facebook.

Ikue also plays Roulette on Saturday (8/1), and has a bunch of upcoming appearances at The Stone. She plays there August 10 with Bruce Ackley, Mike Lockwood and Jen Baker, and twice in September during vocal quartet Mycale‘s residency. That includes 9/17 with Mycale and 9/20 with Sylvie Courvoisier and Jim Black.

She then plays Jon Rose‘s October residency on 10/11 with Rose and John Medeski. After that, she plays 8 PM and 10 PM sets on November 18 during Zeena Parkins‘ residency. The early set is Ikue and Zeena, and the late set has that duo joined by Erik Friedlander and Cyro Baptista. Other artists playing Zeena’s residency include Nate Wooley, White Out, Nels Cline, Okkyung Lee, and more. Full schedule here.

Lastly (for now), Ikue plays the 12/18 date of Chuck Bettis‘ residency with Bettis and Sylvie Courvoisier. We mentioned earlier today that Chuck’s residency also includes Mick Barr, who has his own residency at the venue in August. That one includes an 8/19 show with Retrovirus member Tim Dahl.
