Lydia Lunch

Monday, November 12

It’s tough to think of more than a handful of female artists who’ve remained on the scene for more than 20 years, and while Madonna had her moment of transgression in the early ’90s, the significantly less-well-known Lydia Lunch has made that theme her life’s work since the late ’70s. Originally a mistress of New York’s No Wave movement and the muse of deviant filmmaker Richard Kern, Lunch’s own music, visual art, and spoken word have kept her on the radar of every passionate punk and social outcast that seeks her out. Also in town for the U.S. release of her 1997 book, Paradoxia: A Predator’s Diary, tonight she performs the solo show “Hangover Hotel: Sick Poems and Twisted Grooves.” Ononos and Flexions open.
