In keeping with celebrating brutal culture, XLR8R writer Fred Miketa and company launch their music and lifestyle website, Chronic Youth, with a night of live insanity and spoken word performances at Santo’s Party House in Manhattan this Saturday. Partnering with the folks at Heartworm Press for this particular bout, Heartworm #37 will feature the scuzz offerings and white-noise sacrifices of NON, Prurient, and Cold Cave, while Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle), Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu), Kid Congo Powers (The Cramps), Chris Leo (Van Pelt), and others also appear throughout the night to lay down some sick spoken word. In honor of this special event, the Heartworm camp is offering a download of its latest spoken-word compilation of exclusive material from almost the entire Heartworm #37 roster here. Advance tickets can be purchased for $20 on Ticketweb or $25 night of. Festivities kick off at 7 p.m.
