Coinciding with their addition to 2009 Coachella, alongside seemingly every other band in existence. Throbbing Gristle announce 3 other U.S. show dates. Why is this such a big deal? Not only are they owed a heaping amount of credit for helping carve and influence so much modern music, but I’m fairly certain they’ve never really played places like NYC or Chicago EVER!
Throbbing Gristle’s live shows of days gone past are legendary. I have no clue what to expect from them live some 30+ years later, but I know Genesis P is still bat shit and that I want to be there to experience it
• April 17th: NYC; afternoon set of In The Shadow of the Sun and evening show of greatest hits,album songs, etc, etc. I believe this is going to be at the Masonic Temple in Brooklyn.
• April 19th: Los Angeles; Coachella Festival
• April 23rd: San Francisco; Grand Regency Ballroom
• April 25th: Chicago; Epiphany; same show set up as NYC
I still fondly remember the first time I ever heard Throbbing Gristle and being profoundly confused and inexplicably drawn to it. Those of you in the know have I’m sure noticed the countless Gristle visual and title references I’ve sprinkled into Mishka product. Needless to say they had a pretty big impact on me growing up!- My Pal the Crook
