Diamanda Galas: Death Will Come and Will Have Your Eyes
Thursday May 12 and Saturday May 14 at Red Bull Music Academy at 258 W 118th Street

If you find yourself reeling after a long day of film watching (ho ho!) find your balance at this sick party. We’re pumped for the headliner, Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds— the legendary founding member of the Gun Club and one-time guitarist for The Cramps and his new band of talented musicians– who we interviewed back in June. And get excited for famous dirtbag Andy Animal and what looks to be his new backup band, the Werewolves of Woodstock, named for a 1975 Dick Clark film that features a dune buggy chase. Also featuring Brooklyn mainstays the Sleepies. Party is FREE for pass holders.
