Gyspy Swamp Showcase this Friday - start your Halloween weekend off right!
Get in the Halloween spirit this Friday as The Orange Show presents "Gypsy Swamp Showcase" featuring live music, improvisational dance, visual artistry, and a freaky and sensual celebration of the Day of the Dead. Ghastly body paint, harrowing baptisms, and a whole lot of Voodoo are in store for all that come!
Led by one of Houston's best and most diverse musicians, Hilary Sloan combines dark and wild gypsy violin virtuosity with powerful vocal improvisation. The Houston Chronicle recently commented on her work, saying "Sloan has a gift for expressing waves of emotion via a simple line, a vocal lift, a slide across her fiddle. Her records, even her live performances, are studies in economic artistry."
In addition, Gypsy Swamp will feature Houston belly-dancer and performance artist Y.E. Torres, as the Bad Unicorn, "an inbred Unicorn... she was known for her dark and perverse images as well as her grotesque erotic themes." Other acts will include Erin Joyce, Emily Sloan, Ashley MacLean, Jenny Nuzzo, Mandy Trichell, Brittany Wallis and Jacquelyn Boa.
