Heartworm and Mayhem report

The Heartworm #37 event/reading last Saturday in NYC went really well and was lot's of fun. Lot's of great people, on and off stage. It was a freaky family reunion with a lot of friends I rarely see, like Max G. Morton and Wesley Eisold from Heartworm Press/Cold Cave, Little Annie, Kembra Phaler, Howie Pyro, Marti Domination,etc...etc.. I was also happy to finally formally meet Genesis P-Orridge, Boyd Rice (performing as NON), Jonathan Shaw, Eric Paul and Chris Leo. Now THAT is a gathering of the minds! HERE is a review in Time Out NY. Joly from posted a video of my reading HERE.
The following day I Bolted back to DC , caught the Paint Made Flesh exhibit at The Philips Collection and then was driven out to The Nission Pavillion in Virginia to interview drummer extraordinaire Dave Lombardo from Slayer for DC blog Brightest Young Things "Not your average interview " series at The Mayhem Fest! I felt like Bruno walking in there! Dave was a cool guy and answered all the silly questions we asked him, and Slayer was really HEAVY. But it was not lost on me that the night before at Heartworm #37 I had been sitting in a room with real polite Satanists, Magical thinkers, Manson acquaintances , and Gender benders. now THAT was HEAVY!

Kid Congo Powers reading in NYC August 8th.

August 8, 2009, Chronic Youth presents Heartworm Press #37 at Santos Party House in New York City. Featuring the first live performance by NON in many years, and the negative hiss and out-of-body-bliss of supporters Prurient and Cold Cave. What makes this event unique enough to merit a Heartworm catalog number is the fact that all of these death-cheaters and dangerous thinkers will be (somewhat) contained under one roof for the first time. In between the three acts there will be spoken word performances by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu), Kid Congo Powers (The Cramps, Gun Club, Bad Seeds), Chris Leo (The Van Pelt, The Lapse), Eric Paul (Chinese Stars, Arab On Radar) and renowned tattoo artist and underground journalist legend Jonathan Shaw- A man who seeps old New York. and was wolf enough to run with the likes of Frank Zappa, Jim Morrison, the Manson Family and Charles Bukowski. This will be Shaw's first reading in New York City.
