Wacth the World Burn in a Punk Rock Cabaret
So one of the most original and severely underrecognized The World/Inferno Friendship Society is getting some buzz from some fanzine called The New York Times with the re-release of their musical/multimedia punk rock odyssey “Addicted to Bad Ideas: Peter Lorre’s 20th Century.” Inspired by the life of actor, icon, and Looney Tunes fodder Peter Lorre, Inferno combines both original films and live music to create a sensory onslaught for angst-ridden youth and the comfortably old. Inferno has been bending musical genres for well over a decade without missing a single opportunity to incite slamdancing and slamromancing, mosh pits, jitterbugging, wine-induced stagedives and malt liquor charlestons across the globe.
Check out this decent writeup in The New York Times.
Inferno plays tomorrow Janurary 9 at Webster Hall. Don't forget your spats. Don't forget your flask.
