Concert Recommendation: Sickidz Tribute to Lux Interior, Triton, Philadelphia, April 26

It was obvious from watching Mick Cancer when he fronted Pink Slip Daddy that he owed a debt of gratitude to Lux Interior. I have only fond memories of a New Year's Eve bloody nose when my face got in the way of his boot as he went airborne during a Pink Slip Daddy performance at the Khyber Pass. As I learned more Philly music history, I found out that Mick and his first band, Sickidz were friends, not just fans of the Cramps, which Mick documented so beautifully shortly after Lux's death:

Sickidz will be honoring the late Mr. Interior in Philly on Sunday. The event will feature the music of the Cramps, a showing of their infamous concert at Napa State Mental Institute, never before seen video footage and shared recollections.
A memorial service of Crampsong will be performed by The Sickidz.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to in Lux's memory.

Sickidz play Tritone, 1508 South St., Philadelphia, 215–545–0475, at 9:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 26.
