Sweet SoubretteBrooklyn parlor rock outfit Kotorino and sultry indie ensemble Sweet Soubrette will share an evening of lush arrangements and intense, harmony-fueled art rock at the exquisite nightclub venue Joe’s Pub on Wednesday, September 2, at 7pm.

Sweet Soubrette features lyrically intricate songs inspired by works of literature, troubled romance, and life’s mysteries, led by edgy, wry front woman Ellia Bisker and her ukulele, backed by lush arrangements of strings and horns.

The brooding, carnivalesque ensemble Kotorino, headed by Jeff Morris, shares a similar sonic palette of horns, strings, bass, drums, guitar and ukulele — but with a uniquely evocative, impressionistic songwriting approach and a gypsy jazz-inspired aesthetic.

Since 2012, Morris and Bisker have been performing as the tragicomic, noir-inspired duo Charming Disaster. This show is a rare chance to see their individual personas writ large as two separate ensembles, united by their theatrical approach to musical performance.

Glittering glamour meets bad communication in Sweet Soubrette’s soul-inspired disco-pop number “Be My Man,” which takes on love, longing, light bondage, and the things we just can’t talk about.

“Be My Man” shows off the lush sound of Brooklyn indie rockers Sweet Soubrette, featuring front woman Ellia Bisker’s smoldering vocals backed by a horn section, an infectious bass line, and a Sharon Jones-inspired vibe. The music video features backup dancers in matching sequins, Busby Berkley-inspired choreography, and the kind of bad relationship you just don’t want to end. This glittery, disco-pop/soul-inspired track was previewed on last year’s “What’s My Desire” EP, and will be on Sweet Soubrette’s new album, “Burning City,” releasing in November.

“Be My Man” is available as a free download via Bandamp http://sweetsoubrette.us4.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=964cc6f1226406a4b1e8b276b&id=178436ffa1&e=c29937ddac

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).
