The WSB100, a month-long celebration of William S. Burroughs’s centenary, just announced that Cinema of Transgression pioneer Nick Zedd has joined a lineup that already included Steve Buscemi, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Thurston Moore, John Zorn, DJ Spooky, JG Thirlwell, and many more.

Check out the initial schedule below and you’ll see it also includes Laurie Anderson, who, during her chat with Amanda Stern last week at The Strand, confessed that Burroughs was her biggest early influence, and remains so. “Just because he’s so dark and so funny,” she said. “That’s just an unbeatable skill.” (You can watch the talk in its entirety, above).

The organizers of the WSB100 launched an Indiegogo campaign this week, with perks including a reception with another pioneering performance artist, Lydia Lunch (it’s the closest you’ll ever get to lunching with Lunch!)
