The RaZor Skyline
In a world full of bands that find their sound and then go on to put out the same song and album over and over again, The RaZor Skyline reject that formula and strive to bring together disparate musical influences to create …new and original albums over and over again. They’ve been labelled goth, industrial, aggro-goth, electro goth, all of the above and none of the above. Although the band itself may defy a label, their songs have been described by many adjectives – powerful, lush, emotional, dark.
Conspiracy of Venus: 40 Ways To Be Fabulous
Conspiracy of Venus (CoV) is a women’s community a cappella group based in San Francisco. Under the artistic direction of Joyce Todd McBride, the 40 women of CoV interpret McBride’s daring and inventive arrangements of songs ranging from the classic (Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi) to the cutting edge (Bjork’s Possibly Maybe) with dazzling technical verve and tons of personality. The group’s repertoire also includes works by Bill Withers, Rufus Wainwright, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, and Roger Miller.
Conspiracy of Venus has played to sold out crowds at many San Francisco venues, including The Palace of Fine Arts, The Independent, The Swedish American Hall, The Rickshaw Stop, The Make-Out Room, and others, sharing bills with John Vanderslice, The Mountain Goats, Blame Sally, Emily Jane White, and Rupa and the April Fishes, to name a few. The choir is active in community service. They have performed at Dublin State Correctional Facility and played benefits for the Awamaki Peruvian Women’s Weaving Collective, The Gulabi Gang, The Ursa Freedom project, In Search of Good Food, and the Fairmount Elementary FestiVal. Wherever the group performs, Conspiracy of Venus is hailed by audiences as a groundbreaking musical experience.
They will be playing songs from their latest release, The Garden of Fuzzy Delights and earlier Fuzzpod music. Check out their hybrid sound comprised of the playfulness of Deee-Lite, the lyrical insight and pop elements of Pet Shop Boys, but fueled with a soulful twist akin to that of The Supreme Beings of Leisure. They’ve been compared to Cocteau Twins, Morcheeba, Autechre, Tricky, and Depeche Mode.
