Get ready to CONTORT YOURSELF to a rare live and in person sunset set by one of the most dynamic, original, and influential forces in contemporary music, iconic NYC sax maniacs JAMES CHANCE AND THE CONTORTIONS! Leading The Contortions in the 1970s and James White and the Blacks in the 1980s, James Chance fathered both the dance punk and no wave music genres and influenced scores of musicians from the most subversive to the most popular bands all time. While the LPs “No New York,” “Buy,” and “Off-White” remain timeless and daring and have earned their rightful spot in the canon via so many books, documentaries, and international reissues and compilations, James’ live shows are also the stuff of legend. Exploding onto the fabled CBGB / Max’s Kansas City scenes with his unique combination of sweat-drenched James Brown dance pyrotechnics, blood-soaked Iggy Pop confrontational recklessness, and skronky post-Albert Ayler saxophone brutality, since day one James’ performance stood out from the pack and left blurry footprints all over the borders black and white and art and trash and past and present. James Chance and the Contortions continue to dish it out hard and heavy in 2017, dropping the critically acclaimed LP “The Flesh is Weak” and blowing minds on stages worldwide. Don’t miss this, his first NYC performance in many moons! And don’t stop ’til you get enough because, James is sticking around to reappear later with a special guest DJ set! get down up on the roof!
