Queer Femme Freak Folk Cabaret & Folk Punk August 12 at the Milky Way
Lounge!

“…lanterns illuminated a set of beady glowing eyes and a maw of gruesome
teeth that belonged to a daemon of flesh and blood and because it made her
less frightened to do so she imagined the daemon had the head of a great
horned owl.”


  Three Daemon Serenade (Into the Cupboard) is a fairy tale cabaret that
unfolds silently from gut-spilling tea party to a dark magical world where
tea cups where tutus and daemons appear as grotesque owls. The macabre
puppet theater of Geppetta in collaboration with the haunting experimental
folk of Elliott Harvey (a stick and a stone) creates a surreal environment
where cathartic whimsy and magical realism are birthed from the seemingly
mundane.


  Local musician Evan Greer opens the evening with her femme folk punk
stylings.

*Where: Milky Way Lounge 284 Amory St., Jamaica Plain (in The Brewery
Complex)
*

*Tickets: Suggested $5 donation/ No one turned away for lack of funds*



Bios:

  * Geppetta* is a multimedia fabulist whose work has been described as
“cryptic vaudevillian surrealism”.  Into her tediously crafted puppets she
breathes dark fables and fairy tales confronting themes of fear, isolation,
trauma, and the beauty of survival. Her performance, visual art, and short
film have been featured nationally most recently with the Heels on Wheels
Glitter Roadshow and at Frameline International LGBT Film
Festival.

    *Elliott Harvey* is a Philadelphia-based experimental folk musician and
lead instigator of the haunting sound project, a stick and a stone. Harvey
recently toured across the country with Threaded Frequencies, a
collaborative music venture that featured Diane Cluck, Dirty Fist, and a
slew of other artists and performers.
