JUNE 21st – CAROL LIPNIK & SPOOKERAMA – Authentic Coney Island parlor punk
A Summer Solstice Celebration
Avant-siren chanteuse Carol Lipnik with her wildly eclectic accompanist, the acclaimed keyboardist Dred Scott, conjure an authentic Coney Island Parlor Punk music that is by turns phantasmagorical, carnivalesque, gleefully macabre, and irresistibly compelling. Lipnik’s dramatic 4-octave voice coupled with her poetic, genre-defying songs (many from the point of view of lovelorn beasts and freaks like The Creature From The Black Lagoon and The Werewolf) are thrilling, chilling and heartbreaking.
With projections of vintage Coney Island footage by Peter Cramer!!
