Short Description: 
A tribute to The Cramps and the late, great Lux Interior

Post-Mortem Cramps

"Hey I'm on my way, on a journey out of this world..."

~Lux Interior (10.21.46 - 2.4.09)

On Thursday the 12th, from 10pm to 12am Pacific Standard Time, we will be paying tribute to The Cramps and the recently departed Lux Interior (aka Erick Purkiser , Vip Vop, etc...):

Predating and never quite participating in the early '80s rockabilly revival, the Cramps used that genre's primal sound as a jumping-off point for a uniquely weird pastiche of rock'n'roll, psychedelia and a monster movie/junk food/swamp-creature aesthetic. Led by uninhibited vocalist Lux Interior (Ohio native Erick Purkhiser, who was clearly a student of Cleveland television's Ghoulardi) and guitarist Poison Ivy Rorschach (California native Kirsty Wallace), the band had its roots in Cleveland but was actually formed in New York. (Drummer Miriam Linna, guitarist Bryan Gregory, drummer Nick Knox and guitarist Kid Congo Powers are among the Cramps' illustrious alumni, who all went on to spread the bad word far and wide among the faithful.)

~Ira Robbins, Trouser Press

We'll have many Cramps albums both rare and classic, as well as interviews and other surprises.

3-D glasses available at the concession stand.
