Lydia Lunch RETROVIRUS with Weasel Walter, Bob Bert and Tim Dahl.
LYDIA LUNCH RETROVIRUS: AN ALL-STAR CAST OF SONIC BRUTARIANS IN A NO-HOLDS-BARRED SURVEY OF HER MUSICAL OUTPUT FROM 1977 TO THE PRESENT.

Including music from Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, 8 Eyed Spy, Queen of Siam, 1313 and Shotgun Wedding.

Lydia Lunch has spent decades trolling through the sub/terranean sick-home black & blues creating a schizophrenic musical legacy which loops from shrill No Wave to bludgeoning Hard Rock, from smoky Jazz Noir and illustrated word to macabre Psychedelia.

Weasel Walter is best known as the founder of the cult punk jazz/no wave/brutal prog band, The Flying Luttenbachers. Mr. Walter has 
also worked with other experimental rock groups like XBXRX, Behold The Arctopus, 
Burmese and Lake Of Dracula. As an improviser, Mr. Walter has performed with Evan Parker, Marshall Allen, Elliott Sharp, Peter Evans, Henry Kaiser, Mary Halvorson, Nels Cline, Jim O'Rourke and Vinny Golia. 

Bob Bert has pounded the skins for Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore, Chrome Cranks, Knoxville Girls, fronted his own group Bewitched and has provided a unique rocking voodoo backbeat on over 30 albums. A stint in print making at Warhol's Factory helped inspire him to create the highly lauded music, art and literary magazine BB GUN.
Tim Dahl is a composer and professional electric and double bass player, vocalist, keyboardist and composer living in New York City. He is best known as the front man and bass player of the noise-rock band Child Abuse and the defunct avant-jazz group The Hub. He also writes and performs for the jazz ensemble Pulverize The Sound. Dahl has toured extensively throughout North America, Europe and Japan, and performed with many notable musicians, composers and performers including Yusef Lateef, Archie Shepp, Eugene Chadbourne, John Zorn, Marc Ribot, Elliot Sharpe, Tatsuya Yoshida and Stanley Jordan.
No Men
Loud, bitter noise rock birthed in Austin, TX, currently located in Chicago. Queer, femme-fronted, the androgynous opposite of “yes men”, anti-everything. Equal parts 69, 420, and 666. Bass VI, dueling vocals, dual drums. No "guitar rock" allowed.
End Result
End Result first rehearsed in July 1979 in a basement near Pill Hill on the south side. They were a well respected experimental/nowave band that had a changing lineup throughout the 1980s. Their style was much different than their "hardcore" peers and featured a style that couldn't really be categorized by normal punk conventions.
