With Ruby Room' sudden departure from the downtown music scene we've been watching veeeeery closely to see what venues are picking up the old place's shows. Add Chopper John's on Indian School to the mix, as they host this show for Ruby Room regulars Skinwalkers, noted KISS-hater Jay Bennett's band Scorpion Vs. Tarantula and and Ray Reeves.
The poster is pretty cool, too. Kinda looks like the baby Jesus re-imagined as Kurt Cobain with stigmata/track marks. Vaguely blasphemous but interesting to look at. The show promises music and theatrical performances, so that should be cool.
