Peter Murphy (of British Goth outfit Bauhaus) is coming to the Republic

Take it from us, Goth Music is semi-officially IN

I think this is sexy, and I am not ashamed to admit it.

Our friends at the Republic (for our non-local readers who don’t know, they’re the people who brought the internet this), are bringing in an act they’re pretty excited about: Peter Murphy of Bauhaus fame. Often called the “Godfather of Goth” (according to Wikipedia at least), Murphy is sure to put on an interesting, if not good, performance.

Republic had this to say about the show:

This would be the perfect event for a seasoned crowd that enjoys Murphy’s older hits like “The Sweetest Drop” and “Cuts You Up,” as well as his newer albums, which are more varied in genre; from haunting ballads to pseudo-pop, and also the aggressive alt-rock sound that was a trademark of his work with Bauhaus. 

Still considered a cult mainstay with American fans, Murphy issued the live double-disc Alive Just for Love in Summer 2001. This delightful set was released by Metropolis and featured Bauhaus tracks and solo hits. A year later, he hooked up with renowned world artist Mercan Dade for this sixth studio album, Dust. Unshattered followed in 2004.

Tickets are 20$ in advance at http://www.petermurphy.info/ For more information on upcoming shows at Republic (there are lots of great ones) check out http://www.republicnola.com/
