Kenny Kendra (aka Kendra Zimmerman), a familiar figure in this neighborhood before moving to California several years ago, died on Saturday. Friends said that she suffered a stroke. She was 47.
Through the years in the East Village she had worked at Trash and Vaudeville, Enz's and Religious Sex, among other places. She moved to Long Beach, Calif., and was the owner of a food truck called The Head Hunter.
"She was punk rock with a heart of gold," her friend Cheyenne said in an email. "The stray cats always found her and she would always take them in and take good care of them. They knew a good soul when they found her."
Her NYC friends are gathering tomorrow evening at 6 at Otto's Shrunken Head on East 14th Street to celebrate "the Life and Times of Kenny Kendra."
