John Lurie's new live Internet radio show debuts tonight

Here are the details via the EVG inbox…

VICE announces the forthcoming VICE After Dark With John Lurie, to be live-streamed on via YouTube, and hosted by musician, artist and cult icon John Lurie. The show marks VICE's first-ever live Internet radio show.

The mini-series will premiere tonight at 9 EST, with Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers as a special guest; with additional guest to be announced. Lurie will also provide his musings on a wide-range of subjects in the experimental 90-minute format, throughout which listeners will be invited to call-in and contribute to the show.

Listeners are invited to join the conversation with John Lurie at (347) 474-0415. The second episode will air on Nov. 19, with more episodes to follow.

For the last 12 years, Lurie has focused on painting. His works, which are viewable here, have been shown in galleries and museums around the world. Prior to painting, he produced, directed, and starred in the television series and cult hit "Fishing with John," now available on DVD through the Criterion Collection. Lurie also co-founded the jazz group the Lounge Lizards in 1978, and has composed the scores of more than 20 films. This is his first collaboration with VICE.

His acting credits include Jim Jarmusch's "Stranger Than Paradise" from 1984…

I love John Lurie.
Stranger Than Paradise is great...and Down By Law may be even better.
