After an extensive and exhaustive 93 shows worldwide of his “The Ruby Tour: 40 Years of Bauhaus” that concluded this Spring as well as the aforementioned San Francisco residency, Peter returned home to his home in Istanbul to refresh his energy before returning to the stage in NYC.
First emerging from the British punk and rock underground in the late 70s, Murphy (along with bandmates Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Haskins) fronted the groundbreaking iconic rock band Bauhaus which spawned four iconoclastic and ultra-seminal albums as well as keystone singles “She’s In Parties”, “Silent Hedges”, and, of course, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” before disbanding in 1983. Murphy launched a successful solo career that has yielded ten solo albums so far, including his latest LION, released in 2014.
Hailing from the Barbary Coast,and currently residing in New Orleans, Vinsantos got an early start experimenting with the stage playing the lead in his Christian Elementary school’s production of Samson and Delilah. And yes, he played Samson, and yes he wore a wig. Fast forward into the Middle school years, he made his first musical debut playing a fierce rendition of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” putting this artist WAY ahead of their own time. Moving into the hormonal years, this lead to several bands, none of them successful. Reaching the late 90’s, Vinsantos discovered the world of the San Francisco Underground Drag Performance Art circuit and cut her nails working with the children of Trannyshack and Midnight Mass fame, earning her title of Miss Trannyshack 2000 and The Macabre Snob. From there, the entire history transformed this Queen into a collage that created this multi disciplinary artist. Playing with live music, via piano and vocals, the art of Drag, film, the spoken word and the visual arts, it’s hard hard to know what to expect from Vinsantos because she rarely knows herself what she has planned next. Vinsantos has had the opportunity to work across the country (and other places) with many of her favorite artist including Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, Peaches Christ, David J (Bauhaus/Love and Rockets), Jackie Beat, Jinx Monsoon, Ben DeLa Creme, Bella Blue and practically every Drag Race and Burlesque star that’s not a total C#($*!!!!. Love it or hate it, you won’t soon forget it, so it’s best just to get with the program.
