Bush Tetras return to The Kitchen! With a new EP out called Take The Fall, the iconic NYC post-punk band returns to The Kitchen for their last concert of 2018. Bush Tetras first appeared at The Kitchen in their earliest form in 1979 and then again in 1980 as part of the legendary weekend called Dubbed in Glamour curated by Edit DeAk. After returning to The Kitchen in 2011 and playing our gala last spring, Bush Tetras share with us their first new music in over ten years–perhaps the most hard-hitting collection of songs of their career.

Opening the evening is the Beijing-based, "transnational blues" duo Gong Gong Gong playing material from their recent US debut album Siren 追逐劇. The pairing of Tom Ng's percussive guitar and Joshua Franks's melodic, charging bass taps into the spirit of Bo Diddley, The Monks, and psychedelic music from West Africa to Southeast Asia. 

December 15, 8pm. $20 General / $15 Members.
