This Friday: Flesh Junkies Cabaret Live at the St George Theater

The Flesh Junkies

Even after being spotlighted in The Advance’s “Best of Staten Island: Cover Bands” poll last year, there’s a good chance you haven’t heard of The Flesh Junkies. The zombie punk cabaret outfit is one of the island’s most intriguing acts in years. This Friday, March 25th they’ll be performing live in the Mezzanine Lounge of the St. George Theater.

The official invite for the event on Facebook promises that attendees “will hear songs by The Cramps, The Mumps, The Kinks, X, Blondie, Lou Reed, David Bowie, and much much more”

For this particular performance, the group has been collaborating with Staten Island’s resident retro-fashion expert Vivian Vassar of fame.

“I’ve seen The Flesh Junkies preform a number of times and I’ve always loved the Zombie/Vampire love story they tell and the cool music they play. I took a few pictures of Miss Rina of The Flesh Junkies at their last concert at Pepper Jack’s Restaurant.” explained Vassar, who wondered how Miss Rina, a mainstay of the Junkies, would look in HeyViv’s brand of retro garb.

Inspired, Viv contacted the band, who promptly accepted her proposal to team up for the St. George Theater performance.  “Miss Rina’s sexy vampiric style cried out to be immortalized,” said the excited designer. “So we set up a photo shoot with Kristopher Johnson at Deep Tanks Studio on Bay Street.”

Check out a couple of samples from that Deep Tanks photo shoot, complete with wardrobe provided by HeyViv and Hypno-Tronic Comics, below:
