Jack the Ripper @DarKHouse
Hello my victimes :-) on the wave of my personal latest records, such as my 30th live performance in a single club and my 200th post in this blog, next Friday, Sep.30th is a special date for my professional career: in fact, from 11pm I personally celebrate my 100th live show @DarkHouse, viale del Lavoro 39/A int.16 in San Martino Buon Albergo (East Verona), just when in 1888 Jack the Ripper killed his 3rd and 4th canonical victimes of five in East-End London district of Whitechapel (though more than a hundred are allegedly linked to him): it dealt with Elizabeth Stride and Catherine Eddowes.
Stride's body was discovered at about 1 a.m. in Dutfield's Yard, off Berner Street (now Henriques Street). The cause of death was one clear-cut incision which severed the main artery on the left side of the neck. The absence of mutilations to the abdomen has led to uncertainty about whether Stride's murder should be attributed to the Ripper or whether he was interrupted during the attack. Witnesses thought that they saw Stride with a man earlier that night but gave differing descriptions: some said that her companion was fair, others dark; some said that he was shabbily dressed, others well-dressed. Eddowes' body, instead, was found in Mitre Square in the City of London, three-quarters of an hour after Stride's. The throat was severed and the abdomen was ripped open by a long, deep, jagged wound. The left kidney and the major part of the uterus had been removed. A local man named Joseph Lawende had passed through the square with two friends shortly before the murder, and he described seeing a fair-haired man of shabby appearance with a woman who may have been Eddowes. His companions were unable to confirm his description. Eddowes' and Stride's murders were later called the "double event" (Wikipedia).
A double event actually is this as I celebrate the mysterious figure of Jack the Ripper and my 100th live show: so, don't miss it! :-)
