Come support original music in an intimate setting! ************************************************************** ARTISTS PERFORMING: LILYROSEVIOLET lilyroseviolet doesn't shy away from writing music about dark issues that currently affect/have affected her life, including mental illness and sexual abuse. Not all of her music, however, is dark, sad and angry. lilyroseviolet earned a bachelor's degree in English Literature and Language from Harvard University, where she studied poetry and fiction writing extensively. This training shows up in both lilyroseviolet's love of story telling, and in that her songs often contain elements of poetry, in the form of whimsy, fragile beauty, or ephemera. lilyroseviolet is currently working on a second album, which will be a double CD album. One CD will address the concept of "love," and the other CD will address the concept of "lust." The following poem by lilyroseviolet opens the new album: "While others move toward enlightenment/we monkey with desire/Theirs is not a pilgrimage/like the tongue moving up the thigh/As sweet nothings reach the ear/like the sadness of a wave goodbye/You're not/reducible to purity/or stillness/it kills your raucous beauty/You were meant to lust/and to love." www.lilyroseviolet.us MARY LEMANSKI Mary Lemanski started her professional music career at age 11, playing pipe organ.
