MARCH 21ST
SHILPA RAY
BLAM BLAMS
DANA
SMILING SKULL
9PM // $10

Shilpa Ray is a wailing, fire breathing Cyclops. She tornadoes everything in her path: small towns, big cities, and children's dreams. One of her fans commented on a YouTube video, "If there's a heaven, I want God to hire Shilpa Ray to sing the list of my sins." Within a few hours, she had a day job working for Saint Peter. Ray has ripped off all the greatsThe Gun Club, Tom Waits, The Doors and recently pulled off a triple rip: ripping off Nina Simone ripping off Screamin' Jay Hawkins ripping off the Devil.

Shilpa Ray released her album Teenage and Torture in 2011 on Knitting Factory Records and found her biggest fan in Nick Cave who started telling music journalists she was his favorite current band. Cave brought her on tour as support for a few Grinderman dates, recorded the Wiel/Brecht song "Pirate Jenny" with her for Hal Wilner's Rogues Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys II, and then hired her to sing backup on his Spring 2013 Bad Seeds tour as well as main support for their Fall 2013 UK and Europe tour to promote her new 4-song EP It's All Self Fellatio, Shilpa Ray on his record label Bad Seed LTD. She has also served as main support for Man Man and Acid Mother's Temple as well as the opening act for Elvis Costello, Patti Smith, and A Place to Bury Strangers.

She currently works and plays with her 4-piece band and is releasing her latest album Last Year's Savage on May 19th 2015 on Northern Spy Records.
