Performance troupe duo Fischerspooner will be performing live at Avalon in Hollywood on Saturday, May 23rd. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 27th at 10 am.
Fischerspooner is an art pop performance project created and helmed by Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner that makes music, dance, fashion, film and photography. Their work fuses fine art and pop culture, as in their renowned outsider pop shows bursting with stage effects presented in both art galleries and traditional concert halls. The band’s full-length albums include 1, a punked-up digital party record trussed with conceptual lyrics; and Odyssey, a rich emotional fantasia with a deep, expansive sound.
Odyssey was released to critical acclaim. The album featured more structured songs than their first and had singles featured on episodes of Nip/Tuck. The single "Never Win", went on to become the album's biggest hit, and was well received in (both) clubs and radio, as well as being used in the 2005 Happy Madison movie, Grandma's Boy.
A taste of the unexpected and full of surprise flavors, Fischerspooner looks forward to unleashing their third album in May, 2009. Entertainment is a sophisticated pop epic bubbling with hooks, swirled with fresh ideas and sounds and is produced by Jeff Saltzman (The Killers, The Black Keys, The Sounds). On tour, the band’s music will be combined with an electric stage show bridging the worlds of art and pop.
Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner met at the art institute of Chicago, where they collaborated on performance art pieces. Between 1998 and 2000 the duo moved to New York and wrote a spate of cool electronic tracks to accompany an ambitious new performance idea that took place at the Astor Place Starbucks. With the help of an ever-expanding network of dancers, singers, designers, and artists, the performances grew into large-scale arena-style pop spectacles that were soon staged in galleries and nightclubs all over the world including a summer-long residency at Ibiza’s Man-U-Mission in 2005, the largest nightclub in the world.
