TONIGHT: ultimate weirdo Kim Fowley is throwing yet another night of terror, this time in public at Knitting Factory LA

god, where to start? with over three decades of mayhem and degeneracy under his belt (get it?), Kim Fowley is sort of the Aleister Crowley of the Los Angeles music scene. check out his Wikipedia page here for a more thorough rundown on his shenanigans, highlights of which include possible statutory rape of The Runaways and production of one of the first recorded songs about LSD. got to speak to him a little in person at the recent Bettie Page: Heaven Bound opening at World of Wonder (gallery of pics coming soon), and i have to admit, it’s pretty hard to take a conversation with a seventy year old man wearing lipstick seriously. anyways, he’s got some mondo bizarro night coming up with a bunch of other misunderstoods at the Knitting Factory LA tonight. there is no doubt in my mind that it will at the very least be quite entertaining, though not necessarily in a good way. it’s all ages (frightening), and hosted by Christine Blood. hope you saved up your pennies for the lesbian slave auction.

What can be said about Kim Fowley that hasn’t already been said a thousand times over? Starmaker, producer, huckster, genius, freak, walking musical encyclopedia and tireless self-promoter, Fowley is a permanent feature on the leading edge of the international music scene. Tonight he returns as vocalist in his own right and also presenting a slew of acts that all feature outrageous female musicians, singers and performance artists. As to the headliner the Beat Killers, no less an authority than the L.A.
