About this event

Bitch (from Bitch and Animal, Shortbus) is back with a new collection of songs, including an epic video for her pop anthem, "New Year," released in January 2019. "Easy Target" is an uplifting ballad that she dedicates to the “Me Too” movement and speaks to finding your own self-worth in the face of adversity.

Armed with her unusual instrumentation of electric violin, keytar, ukulele and bass, Bitch’s live show combines epic dance-y tunes as well as tender, intimate, stripped-down songs.

Bitch is no stranger to the stage. As on half of the duo Bitch and Animal, she released 3 albums (including two on Ani DiFranco’s Righteous Babe Records). After going solo, she put out an album via Kill Rock Stars, three on her own imprint (Short Story Records), and also starred as herself in Shortbus (the 2006 feature film from Hedwig and the Angry Inch’s John Cameron Mitchell). Bitch has collaborated with her elder and folk idol Ferron, producing two of the singer’s albums. She has co-written a song with Margaret Cho, and before starting her own career, studied fiddle with Andrew Bird.

For Bitch, “New Year” and “Easy Target” mark the start of a new chapter in her musical journey, moving into her new sound that she affectionately calls “poet pop.”

--

Singular songwriter Myshkin Warbler brings her multimedia performance piece Warning Signs to the Old Church. Warning Signs was created as an artistic response to the dropping of the mask that was the 2016 U.S. election. Choosing songs from her back catalogue to illustrate each bullet, and creating film collages from archival footage for each song, Myshkin illuminates a potent list: the warning signs of fascism. The band plays to the film, creating a powerfully immersive, emotionally diverse live experience. Myshkin performed Warning Signs in Joshua Tree, Prague and Berlin in 2017, and is compelled to reanimate the piece for the current mind-boggling impeachment/election season. This performance will feature Jenny Q on cello.

Haunting melodies, intricate metaphors and subversive subplots …An unmistakable, complex underground legend. —Bitch Magazine, USA
