FEATURING LYDIA LUNCH, WEASEL WALTER, TIM DAHL

“One of the greatest New York musicians of all time.” —Time Out New York
Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, the highly influential late-`70s NYC No Wave band fronted by noise rock icon Lydia Lunch, will play a special one night-only engagement at Trans-Pecos in Ridgewood, Queens on December 11. The lineup will feature Weasel Walter, founder of avant-garde mainstays The Flying Luttenbachers, and Tim Dahl (Child Abuse, Yusef Lateef, John Zorn).
The group is celebrating the upcoming release of Live 1977-1979. Teenage Jesus and the Jerks’ definitive live collection, the album is comprised of performances from famed New York rock clubs Max’s Kansas City and CBGB and Toronto’s Horseshoe Tavern. Live 1977-1979 is out November 27 via Nicolas Jaar’s serial label Other People and was compiled by Weasel Walter.
Hailed by the Boston Phoenix as “one of the 10 most influential performers of the `90s,” a “punk-poet queen of extremities” by The Independent, “an American icon” by the Austin American-Statesman and “a class act all the way” by rock critic Lester Bangs in Rolling Stone, Lydia Lunch first achieved critical success through her work with Teenage Jesus and the Jerks. The band, which also featured NYC No Wave scene staple James Chance, was featured on the seminal Brian Eno-curated/produced 1978 No New York LP and went on to influence a generation of noise rock acts including Sonic Youth, Swans and Big Black.
