About This Event

STAR THEATER and HUNTER : PRESENT PIGFACE Why just watch a show, when you can be a part of one? – Wysh H.Pitchfork: Pigface Fook #21 Best Industrial Album of All TimeBest show of the year. – Darin APigface is an industrial rock group formed by Martin Atkins and William Rieflin just one day after Ministrys The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste tour, (which produced In Case You Didnt Feel Like Showing Up.) Hailed by some as an aggressive new alternative-rock Frankenstein, Pigface grew to become a fierce juggernaut with a malleable line-up that could be as limited as the individual members personal phone books, or as packed with possibilities as the Yellow Pages. Egos were willingly surrendered for the greater good: the onstage fire-eater at a Pittsburgh show was just as important as the participation of then-fledgling Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor. Fans going to the shows expecting a rote regurgitation of the stuff found on the debut 1991 Pigface document, Gub, were left screaming and shaking their sweaty bodies in wild abandon, or scratching their heads down to skull-surface trying to make sense of it all. Pigface has become much more than the convenient, yet dubious tag of supergroup.-Jason PettigrewMartin Atkins continues: Clearly this idea and framework with well over 500 participants now, works and were getting better at it. With stellar contributions on the last tour from Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God, Bruce Lamont from Brain Tentacles, and Danny Carey from Tool. Pigface is clearly an idea that hasnt exhausted all possibilities, just themselves and the audience. Of course with this level of craziness, nothing is guaranteed except an amazing experience. Check local press for details.The current line-up (subject to change) is: Martin Atkins (PiL Killing Joke, Ministry, Nin)En Esch (KMFDM)Lesley Rankine (Silverfish/Ruby)Curse Mackey Mary Byker – Gaye Bykers On Acid /PWEI from June 3rdRandy Blythe -Lamb Of God (May 21st June 5th)Chris Connelly Ministry, Revolting Cocks (May 30 – June 3 & June 25th to July 2nd)Greta Brinkman MobyCharles Levi Thrill Kill KultBobdog Catlin Evil Mothers With appearances fromJared Louche Chemlab (TBA)Fallon Bowman (TBA)David Yow – Jesus Lizard 6/3Gaelynn Lea (5/21-24, 6/28-7/1 TBA)Bradley Bills – Chant (TBA)Barb Hunter – Afghan Whigs, Seattle Symphony Orchestra Justin Pearson – The Locust Dirk Flanigan
