  • This guy/girl duo are a little Tom Waits, kind of parlor-pop, kind of jazz and absolutely inimitable, and they’re coming to Crown Heights
  • You might not know her, but she’s one of NYC’s most distinctive and diverse guitarslingers

  • Layers and intertwining layers of jangle and clang from a female-fronted band who bring back the glory days of the 1980s paisley underground!
  • A killer guy/girl parlor pop/art-rock duo who specialize in grisly wordplay and murder ballads
  • A funny guy/girl Prozac rock duo return to their favorite Brooklyn boite
