UPDATE: The 1/23 & 1/24 shows are being moved to 2/1. Read more HERE.

Amoeba Music, (((folkYEAH!))), and The Chapel proudly present a unique career-spanning residency with the “Godfather of Goth,” Peter Murphy, at San Francisco's The Chapel, January 23rd through February 16th! Murphy will join SF audiences for 16 nights, performing legendary albums in their entirety from throughout his career in this internationally exclusive event.

First emerging from the British underground in the late '70s, Murphy (along with bandmates Daniel Ash, David J, and Kevin Haskins) fronted the groundbreaking, iconic post-punk band Bauhaus, which spawned four seminal albums as well as keystone singles “She's In Parties,” "Silent Hedges,” and, of course, "Bela Lugosi’s Dead," before disbanding in 1983. Murphy launched a successful solo career with Should the World Fail to Fall Apart in 1986. His most-recent release, the live album Bare-Boned & Sacred, came out this year.

The final three shows of the residency (2/14-2/16) will be all-Bauhaus sets featuring special guest David J

Extra special added bonus factoid: The Chapel was once home to a mortuary!
