More guests and acts to be announced soon! ::DRINK SPECIALS:: $5 beer and shot special 1am Happy Hour. …………………………………………………….. A Little About the guests: :: AMOUR OBSCUR :: www.facebook.com/amourobscur Amour Obscur is a Brooklyn-based gypsy punk band that offers a theatrical performance drawing from the striking visual aesthetics of the American sideshow and Weimar cabaret. Mixing unique instrumentation—vocals, accordion, upright bass, trombone, trumpet and percussion—and original compositions with eclectic influences such as traditional Romani music, Americana, Kurt Weill, klezmer to contemporary electronic dance music, Amour Obscur creates a sound that reflects the experience of the underground for artists, hobos, neo-gypsies and revelers everywhere. ::SARAH SCREAMS:: The Alt-Opera Diva with a booty that just won't quit! Sarah Screams is an Academy-trained opera singer who found New York in 2009, and quickly carved out a niche for herself in the gritty-yet-glamorous community of alternative performance art. Since then, she's been seen in the clubs, bars, and back rooms of the NYC underground, combining the beauty of classical operatic performance with the excitement of modern burlesque and comedy. Sarah is also the creator and producer of OPEROTICA, a variety show that puts a spin on traditional opera singing, proving to audience members just how diverse, modern, and subversive an art form opera can be—and always has been. more to be announced soon!
