“Indie rock fusion virtuoso” (New York Press) and “rising international rock star” (Global Times) Natti Vogel has halted touring abroad to assemble a local, 5-piece-band as visually appealing as they are musically accomplished. After a series of successful private showcases and mini-sets, the Inexperience is tight and ready for their public deflowering. The Branded Saloon* will celebrate by offering a discounted, limited-supply Natti Vogel cocktail at the bar.
At 25, my early cabaret days just keep coming back to haunt me.
Valerie Kuehne, wild curator/cellist/composer, has given me the distinct honor of hosting this month’s SuperCoda Variety Show at the gorgeous semi-private venue Spectrum, home of a 7-foot Steinway Grand and first-rate audio pornography. Most of my shows in the coming year will — without giving too much away – not be solo, so this will be a rare treat for us both.
Arrive promptly at 8pm with whatever cash you wish to spend on music and booze, a *classy* guest, a rambunctious attitude and the knowledge that I may at any time anthropomorphize honey containers, recount horrifying experiences in Tokyo Love Hotels, take your requests and debut an inappropriately poppy new song.
SPECTRUM is: the 2nd Floor of 121 Ludlow Street, LES, Manhattan.
… in the middle of January?
So much has happened in the past 1.5 years since we’ve been in touch that it is unforgivably obscene!
I don’t know how we could catch up on it all in such a brief post BUT. I. WILL. TRY:
There’ve been wine-bottle pianos, sexy and strange honey-baptisms with bridge-jumping aerialists, a music video premiere on the Faster Times, festival shows with my beloved band and string quartet, a Japan tour, a birthday tribute concert, a 2-page spread in a Danish magazine, an album release, and that’s just all my labile musician brain can recall at this time.
I’ve sworn in vegetarian blood that I will keep you better abreast of everything in 2013, so let me start by proving it to you now:
VALERIE KUEHNE - a *genius* (not a term I use lightly) cellist whom I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with for 5 YEARS, and whose exquisitely written essay on my songs gave this website its catchphrase, has asked me to join the circus tonight for an intimate show at Panoply in Brooklyn. I know it’s terribly last minute, but this is a rare opportunity for interdisciplinary magic in which I suggest you partake. I will debut an outrageously chaotic and ferocious new song laden with a desensitizing quantity of unresolved tritones in the melody. Warning: trigger for anyone with feelings.
It feels very, very good to blog all over this blog again.
So many more exciting announcements coming soon.
Love to you all.
