A Summer Solstice Celebration

“A soundtrack to a lost soul’s lonely stroll down a seedy New Orleans street, there lulled into a derelict brothel by Lipnik’s eerie multi-octave wail and Spookarama’s brand of blues.”

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.

“…Carol Lipnik’s Spookarama evokes a Coney Island of the ear, full of ghostly carnivalesque moments…”

With projections of vintage Coney Island footage by Peter Cramer!!

“…Carol Lipnik’s Spookarama evokes a Coney Island of the ear,
full of ghostly carnivalesque moments…”
The New York Times

“…Lipnik’s moody voice conveys the feeling of being stuck at midnight
in the middle of the winter in Coney Island, the neighborhood of her youth…”
John Donohue, The New Yorker

“…a soundtrack to a lost soul’s lonely stroll down a seedy New Orleans street,
there lulled into a derelict brothel by Lipnik’s eerie multi-octave wail
and Spookarama’s brand of blues, mixing voodoo and psychedelic.
The music steers for melancholy
by way of the carnival-esque and the creepy—‚no surprise, since Lipnik grew up
by the defunct funhouses and rickety rides of Coney Island...”
The Village Voice

Carol Lipnik sounds like Diamanda Galas fronting The Doors
