The Coathangers Play an Erotic Ninja Party While Looking Like Raccoons (Animation!)

Robbie Pfeffer

DRAWL! is a video series created by all-around Renaissance man Robbie Pfeffer and New Times that focuses on the odd and exciting experiences that make life in a band interesting. With a mix of first-person storytelling and animation, DRAWL! hopes to show that these artists’ lives can be just as engaging as their music.

The erotic turned a little spooky and weird for the Coathangers during one Halloween gig in Baltimore.

After pulling up to a creepy abandoned warehouse, the band learned they were playing an erotic ninja-themed party.

We talked to drummer Rusty Coathanger, a.k.a. Stephanie Luke, and she told us all about what it felt like to play music while ninja porn was projected onto a screen behind her.
