Lydia Lunch has made quite a racket since moving to NYC in 1973. She’s become sort of a legend in the underground music world, from her start in one of the most influential no-wave bands of all time, Teenage Jesus and The Jerks, to her latest endeavor, Retrovirus. Lunch, who has collaborated with the likes of Nick Cave, Thurston Moore, Kim Gordon, Robert Quine and more, is bringing her new party to the Knitting Factory this Thursday night. Her band features special guests Bob Bert (Sonic Youth), Algis Kizyz (Swans) and Weasel Walter.
