“Chloe will celebrate her new line with a party at Webster Hall on Monday, Feb. 4th at 10 p.m. with a performance by The Slits and DJ sets by Paul Sevigny, Benjamin Cho, Leo Fitzpatrick, Brian Degraw and Nate Lowman.”
I’m not sure if that’s a private party or not, but the Slits are also playing Mercury Lounge on March 5th, and tickets are on sale. Then they’re touring, playing SXSW, and coming back to play Maxwell’s on March 24th. Tickets are on sale for that too. All dates below….
