Pioneer Works is honored to present genre/gender defying night of performative, experimental psychedelic, punk, industrial rock with Psychic TV, Haribo, Shilpa Ray, and WETWARE.
Psychic TV Born from industrial music behemoth Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV is fronted by Throbbing Gristle’s founder: anti-hero, artist, and Pandrogenist, Genesis P-Orridge. — Psychic TV is particularly known for its intense and visceral live performances and for a creative lineage that includes cultural luminaries such as William S. Burroughs, Derek Jarman, and Timothy Leary, among others. The band will perform old and new favorites including songs from their latest album, Snakes.
Haribo A performance group of artists Raul De Nieves, Jessie Stead and Nathan Whipple. A blend of punk installation, improvised narratives and original music, Haribo presents unruly cross-genre operettas to sold out crowds in New York and internationally. Recent performances include Performa 13, Issue Project Room, Akershus Kunstsenter, among many others.
Shilpa Ray The New Jersey-born and Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter has recorded under several guises, including the Happy Hookers, and Beat the Devil. Her most recent solo album, Last Year’s Savage, featured lyrics that challenged dominant male hierarchies. The album was accompanied by a satirical online news site, Savage Times, which published biting cultural commentary and humorous fake news pieces.
WETWARE is the collaborative project of Matthew Morandi (Jahiliyya Fields) and Roxy Farman. Morandi says of the project: “fried punk weirdness….a(nti)-techno. Warped vocals and synth-trails a la the Screamers and the more agnostic characters in ‘Sword of Doom’. Post NY confrontational personality disorder.”
