Post-punk and Goth return to the spotlight
In the last few years, erstwhile "Godfather of Goth" Peter Murphy has seen somewhat of a mainstream revival, between reuniting with his former Bauhaus bandmates, collaborating with Nine Inch Nails during their final tour and even cameo-ing in a "Twilight" film. But his own music comes first; earlier this year, the singer released his best solo album ("Ninth") in nearly two decades. Monday, he played Irving Plaza, offering up some new songs (the very catchy single "I Spit Roses"), a few classics ("I'll Fall With Your Knife," "Cuts You Up") and even a few covers, including "Ziggy Stardust." Co-headliners She Wants Revenge, meanwhile, delivered a post-punk sound that seemed eerily reminiscent of their tourmate -- it's good to crib from the best. With Hussie Club.
