Downtown shock-rock institution the Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black returns for a sure-to-be-freaky gig. Expect nudity; sickly green body paint; and plenty of gonzo, Halloween-apropos theatricality from frontwoman Kembra Pfahler, infamous for (among other exploits) stitching her vagina shut in the 1992 short film "Sewing Circle." Also on the bill is No Bra, the conceptual-pop project of Germany's Susanne Oberbeck, who summons a profound feeling of unease with just her voice and minimal electronic beats.
