Serious Talent We Missed in 2014: Syncopated Ladies

#WatchThis  #WomentoWatch

The Syncopated Ladies dance crew was created by world-renowned tap dancer and choreographer Chloe Arnold who was discovered at an early age by legendary choreographer Debbie Allen.  Chloe has since gone on to perform on stages around the globe (in 21 countries and over 35 states), worked with celebrated artists including Beyonce, and appeared on national TV shows like “Dancing with the Stars” and “Boardwalk Empire.”  Chloe formed Syncopated Ladies, the first all-female tap band, to bring more appreciation for tap to modern audiences, and to create a platform for women to be at the forefront of this beloved art form.  The group has performed in Vancouver, Canada, at B.B. Kings in New York City, annually at their D.C. Tap Fest, at the Dancescape L.A.’s 10th Anniversary Showcase, and Nigel Lythgoe’s star-studded “Dizzy Feet” charity gala.  For more information, please visit www.syncladies.com

From the indomitable and impressive, to the child-like innocent, or crazy, unpredictable, this new show Femmes! is an ode to every kind of woman we cherish and is a beautiful tribute to the Parisian chic.

Mhairi MorrisonThe show features Mhairi Morrison of the comedy web series, Feathers and Toast. She will host the show as her character Tallulah Grace, a slightly delusional cooking show host obsessed with all things French who believes herself to be the next Julia Child, but who, in reality, struggles to pull off a decent sandwich.  www.feathersandtoast.com

juliaOpening the evening is Paris Chansons, LA’s premier French band known for their original renditions of French favorites from Aznavour to Zaz, plus an exciting international twist featuring music in Russian, Italian and other world flavors. www.parischansons.com

Fable Cry and the Abyss of Fancy Dancing

“We’re only slighlty deadly!”

fable cry

Without a doubt one of the most unusual music offerings to date.  But really, we just HAD to share Nashville-based theatrical scamp rock band Fable Cry and their new single “Fancy Dancing”  from their upcoming sophomore release, due out this summer.

“These guys are doing something fresh, unique, and they stand out among the abyss of musicians and bands in the Nashville area trying to pursue music as a career.” (Middle Tennesee Music)

twitter-birdFollow them on Twitter: @FableCry

Bonding over the whimsical, theatrical and comical and donning a variety of musical influences from Danny Elfman to Queen to Gogol Bordello, Fable Cry showcases their vaudevillian persona in all their music and performances. “If it’s originality you want, you can count on Fable Cry to be there with bells on. Delivering a raucous live experience, it’s no wonder they are gaining the affection and attention of a growing number of loyal fans and listeners.” (In Case of Fire, Use Stairs) With the release of “Onion Grin,” The Deli Magazine warns, “[Fable Cry] might suck you down the rabbit hole into their other material.”

You can also listen to their other single “Onion Grin”   

“Fable Cry spin inventive, cabaret-ready yarns that are given life by their palpable musical energy.” (PopMatters)
