Peter Murphy at Amoeba SF

Amoeba Music, (((folkYEAH!))), and The Chapel proudly present a unique career-spanning residency Peter Murphy San Francisco Residencywith the “Godfather of Goth,” Peter Murphy, at San Francisco's The Chapel, March 5th through March 27th! Murphy will join SF audiences for 14 nights and 17 shows, performing legendary albums in their entirety from throughout his career.

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. 

Three of these soon-to-be legendary shows (3/21-3/23) will be all-Bauhaus sets featuring special guest David J, and the last two shows (3/26 & 3/27) are tributes to David Bowie.

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