WIERD Presents a Very Rare live performance by FRANK JUST FRANK!
Wednesday, June 1st, 2011
I decided to take a break from my undeniably rivetting new book The Crises of Abstraction in Canada:The 1950s that I scored inside an ultra chic, explosively vintage-90s 'If you see something say something' style VRappropriately duct-taped together bookbag at a rest stop in New Hampshire, and I walk into the room next door to find my Mom intensely absorbed in googling 'Leatherman'...my goodness doesn't get any more VR than this yes - Viva Materialism!!!...aka Mother knows best...n'oh wait thats complicated - lets see: you're definitely packin downtown style if you're totin a Swiss army knife in yr pleasure-ready VRanglers...and Canada is indeed part French as well, so...screw that. Uh, ok, ahhh. ...Either way as I was saying - 'Rivetting'!(ouch stop slow down...). You go girl! VR.
This week WIERD is proud to welcome the long-overdue return of the amazing FRANK(JUST FRANK) for a live performance at midnite! This will the band's first live performance in NYC in over 2 years! Our long-beloved gatekeeper of the smoothly elusive Franco-Jersienne World his Froidetastic VRagesty Monsieur Anthem relocated to Brooklyn from Paris back in February and has since put together a fantastic new FjF line-up for the forthcoming second LP. For everyone who emailed - yes the band will indeed be playing nearly all of their debut full-length The Brutal Wave in its entirety, and yes I have heard the one about "Great French music makes about as much sense as great British wine" though I think we've certainly made a case for the former in past years and if you'd like a list of contemporary UK Whine-o masters god knows just go google yourself alone in the Britpop darkness - its the 'unscrewed' musical equivalent of the swiss army without the Leatherman, positively bloody red yes!!!
And in news that goes forever beyond the VR world tonite will be the eminently OFFICIAL birthday celebration of our wickedly nasty young doorwhore of the cold, WIERD night - the wild, fierce queen bitch par VRexcellance Ms. Georgette(aka DJ Pre-Op Trans) whos tiny, fragile, frighteningly emaciated frame turns a charmingly naive 21 tonite and shes comin out in all her shiny black glory!...you've seen her flit through the shadows in her spiky leathers and veils...now come worship our naughty lady, and take her in the back and watch her go down...or was it thee other way around, oooooh?!!!
Lastly a reminder the Martial Canterel midwest tour commences Friday night in Detroit! Complete info and all details can be found here:
No Love Lost DJs - Sean Gray(Fan Death Records) and Denman, Washington DC, and Frankie Teardrop Spin the WIERD World!
