Burt Murder Kills It in Hudson

It’s Hudson noise nuts the Bunnybrains who blazed the freaky trail for underground performance art-oriented music in the Columbia/Dutchess county zone. But Pine Plains oddball Burt Murder, who plays Spotty Dog Books & Ale on January 19, is the area’s latest waver of the weirdo flag, after moving up from—where else?—Brooklyn.

Rocking a wacky, wacky, wacky camp-drag persona, Murder makes lo-fi, experimental dance pop, which he’s documented across four albums thus far. The Spotty Dog date certainly sounds intriguing. Billing it as the Hot Dog Boat Collaborative Songwriting Workshop of “record-breaking songs about hot dogs” and promising “beer-boiled hot dogs and a person dressed as a hot dog,” the ginger-bearded musician asks audience members to “bring an instrument and be ready to write, sing, and jam.” I certainly hope someone gets video.

Speaking of video, here’s one for the feel-good hit “I Ripped My Dick Off.” Enjoy.

Burt Murder’s Hot Dog Boat Collaborative Songwriting Workshop will happen at Spotty Dog Books & Ale in Hudson, New York, on January 19 at 7pm. Admission is free. For more information, call (518) 671-6006 or visit http://www.thespottydog.com/.
