Psychic TV 

When: Sat., Sept. 19, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $22
An enduring countercultural figure, Genesis P-Orridge is credited with forerunning industrial culture as a founding member of Throbbing Gristle, a group of experimentalists bent on probing the margins of sound and provocative physical feats in the tradition of durational performance art. Then, P-Orridge founded Psychic TV. Flitting between psychedelia and outlandish acid house, the group’s packaging and visual components further expanded upon P-Orridge’s influential aesthetic. A serial collaborator, P-Orridge’s boldest move occurred in tandem with the late Lady Jaye. Together, the two embarked upon the so-called Pandrogeny Project, working through surgery to morph into a sole, gender-free individual. Most recently, P-Orridge reinvigorated Psychic TV — which performs on Saturday at the Independent (628 Divisadero St., San Francisco) — as a pulsating, psych-inclined rock unit.
