Noir Gotham Deluxe
This just in from Bliss Blood in New York:
It's ukulele season in Gotham, so come to Mo Pitkin's Saturday night for another installment of Ukulele Noir to see some of the city's most unique uke performers.
read about it here, see the poster...
Craig Chesler will be filling in for Craig Robertson as Emcee, playing a set, and sharing the stage with Nightcall, Sweet Soubrette, and Meaghan Farrell.
Nightcall is retro revivalist (& Moonlighter) Bliss Blood's latest project. Playing her trusty ukulele, Bliss is accompanied by Peter Maness on upright bass and Stu Spasm on electric guitar. They play 1960's film music (think 007) and originals in the style of "crime jazz."
Sweet Soubrette brings a fresh new voice to the singer/songwriter scene with a femme-fatale-and-ukulele act that walks the narrow line between ironic and sincere. Tongue-in-cheek lyrics and melodrama notwithstanding, these torch songs just might be in earnest. Sweet Soubrette is Ellia Bisker on vocals and ukulele.
Meaghan Farrell is a young singer/songwriter from Jersey who has been stunning audiences in New York and Boston with her original compositions.
