Sweet Soubrette, a “sensational” (Phildaelphia Inquirer), “enchanting” (Metro NY) ukulele-powered indie rock band based in NYC, make their West Coast debut on May 11, performing a set of their signature dark love songs at The Roxy. Sweet Soubrette’s cabaret-influenced indie rock has been described as “one part circus…one part poet…third part rockstar” (CultureMob). Time Out New York says “Sweet Soubrette’s style comes with a pinch of Regina Spektor quirk and a spoonful of old-timey burlesque.” The Deli Magazine praises front woman/songwriter Ellia Bisker’s “rock star command and intelligently crafted music.”

Check out this music video for the dark and passionate “What’s My Desire?” inspired by the literary love letters of Anaïs Nin and Henry Miller (“a compelling bitter-sweet pop song of the highest order” -The 405) .

This show kicks off the Little Brooklyn Bridge Festival, which brings together three Brooklyn-based bands and two L.A./Brooklyn hybrid bands for a series of L.A. concerts from May 11-14. Brooklyn’s Kotorino, Sweet Soubrette, and Charming Disaster join with L.A./Brooklyn hybrid Peach & Knife to offer Los Angeles a taste of New York City’s best “parlor rock” along with epic instrumental soundscapes courtesy of L.A.’s Whale Fall.

Showcasing the best parlor rock that Brooklyn has to offer and the influence of Brooklyn on L.A. bands, each group offers a unique musical experience, united by a common thread: intimate yet theatrical songs with dark, expressive lyrics, intense harmonies, and a hint of gypsy wildness (also, ukuleles).
