Peter Murphy

Media Title

Bela Lugosi may be dead, but the godfather of goth lives on. Peter Murphy, the gaunt, gloomy ex-vocalist for early ‘80s legends Bauhaus—who played an instrumental role in the establishment of the goth genre and subculture—embarks on a full North American tour in support of Lion, his 10th solo LP, produced by Martin Glover (of Killing Joke fame). Bauhaus disbanded in 1983 and remained apart until their surprise release of new material, Go Away White, in 2008. But citing irreconcilable differences, the band didn’t tour and called it quits for good. Whatevs, ‘cause since that initial ‘83 breakup, Murphy had established a successful solo career in the band’s musical footsteps, his position in the pantheon of post-punk frontmen clearly secure. The man’s footprint has been inarguably far-reaching.

Joining Murphy at the Troc tonight will be Austin natives Ringo Deathstarr, who dropped their latest EP, Gods Dream, last year. The trio is heavily influenced by the first wave of shoegazers and match that audio onslaught with breathy dual vocals. Having previously toured with The Smashing Pumpkins, these vets are seasoned in the art of warming large audiences. Get out to the Troc early for this one. // DANIEL GELB

8pm. $24-$100. With Ringo Deathstarr. Trocadero Theatre, 1003 Arch St. 215.922.6888. thetroc.com
