Gary's 10th Anniversary Show on Dec. 11th—Don't Miss It!

Finally rescheduled from its original June date, this show promises to be the 'ne plus ultra' of the Lucas experience so far, taking place at GL's downtown NYC launching pad The Knitting Factory on Friday Dec. 11th. Beginning at 8pm with a select solo set that will cover old favorites played ten years ago at his first ever solo gig (June 8 1988) at the old Factory to brand new compositions fresh from his fertile mind and hot little hands...followed by a duo set with special guests Danielle Gerber (a fantastic singer and co-author with Gary of soon-to-be rock classic "Sweet Psycopath"), Richard Barone (former Gods and Monsters member, ex-Bongo and excellent solo artist), and Peter Stampfel (Gary's partner in their acid-folk duo The Du-Tels, legendary half of The Holy Modal Rounders)...followed by the concert debut of Gary Lucas' Big Pishers, his latest ensemble featured on "Busy Being Born" comprising 'anti-glee club' singers Kenny and Larry, acoustic bass virtuoso Greg Cohen, and world-class drumgod Jonathan Kane, performing all yr BBB favorites.

The evening winds up with the first appearance in NYC in over 2 years of Gary's band Gods and Monsters featuring Jonathan Kane and famed bassist and ex-Modern Lover Ernie Brooks (the current film "Gods and Monsters", which is now playing in NYC and comes heartily recommended by Gary, takes its title from the same source Gary's band name comes from, the great James Whale's black humor classic film "The Bride of Frankenstein"). The Gods and Monsters set will reprise many favorites plus new material including "Breath of Bones" (featured on the Knit Fac's JAM cd). 'Twill be a night to there and live to tell your children about it!
