I can't believe it's been 5 years since Lux Interior cast off this mortal coil.

Today, let's commemorate the awesomosity of The Cramps and celebrate The Feast of St. Lux!

A few of these tribute shows have been popping up in the area:

Lux Lives East Coast is proud to present the first Lux Lives in Providence at DUSK with Thee Fabulous Itchies and the Evil Streaks!

Lux Lives is a celebration of the life of Lux Interior who passed way 5 years ago this February. For the past 4 years some great folks across the pond have been holding annual Lux Lives events where fans get together and see bands, listen to music, and basically celebrate everything Cramps. This has spread to the US starting last year with the first Lux Lives (US) being held in Boston. It was a great success. This year there have been Lux Lives events in Los Angeles and Brazil, with hopefully more in the works.

For my part, I have helped organize 4 events on the East Coast. All the details are still being worked out and we will update this page as we get closer to the event!

*This event is for like minded individuals to get together to remember all that The Cramps have given us, but it is also fundraiser for Lux's favorite charity, Best Friends Animal Society. There will be Lux Lives shirts, buttons and maybe a few other things. All proceeds will go to Best Friends.

Thanks and hope to see you there!

Saw the Cramps for the first time at the 40-Watt Club in Athens, Georgia back in the 1980s. We were next to the stage....LUX was great and Poison Ivy grimaced and snarled at me the whole show. One of their best performances...

I be lovin' some Cramps.

Saw them in Austin in the late 80's! Being a guitar player, Poison Ivy was a living wet dream... a sexy gal playing a badass Gretsch! Oh yeah... There was also the strangeness of Lux wearing red silk panties humping the speaker cabinet with the mic stuffed in his mouth. Dark, strange, shocking and rawking... The perfect formula for rock and roll! It also helps that it was loud as shit.

I still shed a tear when it comes to his bday or anniversary of death. Lux was a huge influence to me growing up. He's to blame for my twisted sense of humor and taste in music...

Yep, I know what'cha mean.... He is to blame for my love of wearing red stilettos and black satin corsets.

May you all have a blessed Feast of St. Lux, complete with chicken pot pie and eyeballs in your martinis.

I feel like this creeps up on me every year. I bet Lux would appreciate that.

You'll never seen another one like him.
Not in this lifetime.
