The Queen Returns - Lydia Lunch to play Orlando in November


No-wave queen and performance art/literary terror Lydia Lunch is set to make what is sure to be a confrontational return appearance in Orlando this autumn. The singer will bring her Retrovirus ensemble - including Bob Bert, Weasel Walter and Tim Dahl - for a white-knuckle trip through a musical oeuvre that includes Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, 8-Eyed Spy and the Rowland Howard collab Shotgun Wedding.

Lydia Lunch Retrovirus plays Will's Pub on Thursday, Nov. 16, at 8 p.m. with the Ludes and Shewbird. Tickets are $10. Prepare.
