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.
Hailed by LA Weekly as ‘“the cult darling of the Underworld,” Jill Tracy’s seductive, shadowy compositions have become synonymous with the beautiful dark— featured on Showtime’s DEXTER, CBS-TV Navy NCIS; and movies like Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and Other Madnesses. San Francisco Chronicle has deemed her “the femme fatale for the thinking man.”
Her piano music and smoky vocals will transport you into an elegant netherworld full of hidden passageways, wonder cabinets, and opium dens. Of monsters, marvels and mayhem.
You know it’s not safe here; but with Jill Tracy as your guide, you’ll be in no hurry to leave.
