Lydia Lunch Retrovirus play the Drunken Unicorn Sat., Oct. 6
The no wave legend returns
Lydia Lunch is a veteran of New York City’s caustic no-wave scene. Backed by former Sonic Youth drummer Bob Bert, along with guitarist Weasel Walter, and bass player Tim Dahl, her latest project, Retrovirus gives an industrial free-jazz makeover to her early work with Teenage Jesus & the Jerks. Lunch remains as contentious as ever, proving herself one of punk’s foremost provocateurs, whose songs walk the line between discord and intimacy.
