Eerie Von, Misery Obscura

We are a little past a week since Danzig played Starland Ballroom with Gorgeous Frankenstein and Seventh Void. Original Danzig bassist, Samhain-er, and part-time Misfit Eerie Von was not on board for that show, but you can catch him at Generation Records on 1/8 when he appears/performs (country music?) in celebration of Misery Obscura: The Photography of Eerie Von 1981 - 2009.

Misery Obscura gives fans unique insight into the punk and metal scene of the 1980s and early 90s from the perspective of one of it's greatest stars, chronicling the rise of The Misfits, Rosemary's Baby, Danzig, and Samhain through the worldwide success of the punk and metal scene as they tour with acts like Metallica and White Zombie.

The shindig kicks off at 7PM and features an acoustic performance from Eerie Von, backed by Lyle Preslar (Minor Threat) and Mike D'Antonio (Killswitch Engage). Eerie Von and designer Tom Bejgrowicz will be signing copies of the book, which you can preorder to reserve a spot for the show. Dark Horse has a few pages of the book that you can preview. Flyer and more event info below...
