Dark Cabaret at Colony Woodstock – Frenchy & the Punk + Dust Bowl Faeries, Thur. March 30
Frenchy and the Punk & Dust Bowl Faeries bring blissful and maniacal Dark Cabaret music to Colony Woodstock, Thursday March 30th, 8pm, Woodstock NY. Prepare yourselves for dancing and magical happenings!
Frenchy and the Punk
An unorthodox, evocative Electro-Acoustic Dark Cabaret Post-Punk duo based in the Hudson Valley. Their exotic melodies and European-inflected percussive textures invoke a dark carnival of two that they take on the road both across the US, UK and in Europe. French-born singer Samantha Stephenson sings with a gothy heft and authority that may remind one generation of Siouxsie Sioux and another of Grace Slick. Guitarist, live looper, and former punk bass player, Scott Helland weaves dark riffs and layers of spidery melody in an acoustic/electric tone that is entirely his own.
Dust Bowl Faeries
“Americana by way of pagan cabaret”
A faerie-tale fusion of dark cabaret, delirious polka and gothic spaghetti western music, Dust Bowl Faeries is a dark-carnival band from the New York Hudson Valley. The band’s eclectic repertoire of songs draw inspiration from circus songs, murder ballads and Eastern European folk tunes. Accordion, singing saw and acoustic guitar combine to create the Dust Bowl Faeries otherworldly sound. The band was founded by Ryder Cooley (faerie queen) and her taxidermy spirit animal, Hazel the Ram. Ryder and Hazel are joined by Jon B. Woodin (rocket faerie), Liz LoGiudice (river faerie), Andrew Stein (time faerie) & Rubie LaRue (feisty faerie).
