In celebration of the official worldwide/digital/physical/outer-reaches-of-the-galaxy debut release of,RetroFuture Pop Exotica, today, Vermouth (www.vermouthlounge.com), Los Angeles' premier exotica/lounge/Gamelan/otherworldly band of merrymaker's has confirmed a record release show to celebrate!
Equal parts, Martin Denny, B52's, Amazonian jungle and choreographed stage performance,RetroFuture Pop Exotica includes a host of talented multi-instrumentalists performing songs featuring exotic animals (“Gretchen The Iguana”, "Costa Rica"), hip-shaking dance parties, (“Go Go Dancer”, "Goggle Boy"), and mysterious lyrical tales (“Velvet Circus”, "Curious"). With 12 tracks clocking in at just under 45 minutes, there is enough tremolo, space-age orchestration, coy vocals, bird calls and spy guitars to make Peter Gunn yell, “Taboo!”
I live for adventure! I've been in rock bands, movies, plays and on TV. I adore animals, motorcycles get my heart racing and I also have a passion for sushi and ice cream (not at the same time). I was the Queen of the 31st Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade. I am also a professional belly dancer (swords are my speciality), a Polynesian/Tahitian dance student and a full-time journalist. Here, I'll share some of my life- who I meet and where I go in the music scene, as well as music news, and any other intriguing people, places and things I come across. **PLEASE NOTE: Here I will also post excerpts from press releases I receive with information on upcoming entertainment events and news.** Welcome and keep on rockin'!
