Dark Lullaby musical premieres at Trunk Space

Dark Lullaby musical premieres at Trunk Space

DARK LULLABY- New Film-Noir Musical Opens June 9 &17
Two live performances at Truck Space & The FilmBar

How do you steel yourself against a random universe that seems determined to turn you into an accidental killing machine? 

SHERI AMOURR, the director who brought you such live downtown stage musicals as The Goblin King's City, A Swimming in the Head and Rocky Horror at the Firehouse, joins forces again with SERENE DOMINIC (writer of A Swimming in The Head) to bring you DARK LULLABY, a new musical based on the 1945 film-noir classic Detour, even though Dark Lullaby's story arc goes from the mid 1970s to the late 1980s, leaving plenty of room fr stylistic musical genre-hopping, from rock to rap to disco.

The show stars SKY DONOVAN as young Tom Reynolds, a once-gainfully employed guitar player trying to get to the West Coast to reunite with his actress girlfriend Joanna, played by RIVA FIGUEROA. See SHERIDAN WOOD as the femme fatale Lyndetta, determined to derail Tom at all costs and actor/rapper JOOBS as Roscoe Des Moines, the man of means who inadvertently sends Tom off on his downward spiral to the electric chair.

Then thrill to ASHLEY NAFTULE in a dual role as Warden Crosley, the man who tries to keep Tom on the straight and narrow and Mr. Sunniver, the sleazy casting director out to out-ME TOO Joanna. Also in a dual role is ERNESTO MONCADA as Mr. Punabi and Father Merv. RYAN AVERY portrays Riley, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Bill Fishoff, (PARKER MORDEN & VERONICA MONICA) whose power and wealth can and will turn the whole town of West Patagonia against Tom! Guiding them on their rendezvous with vengeance is ABIMAEL MONTES GUARDIOLA as Psychic Bobby, the telepathic bounty hunter from Wichita Falls.

Writer/co-director SERENE DOMINIC narrates as the older more incarcerated Tom while the SAN JACINTO DEATH ROW PRISON BAND serve as the show's pit orchestra. Through personal reminiscences, songs and flashbacks, we'll follow Tom Reynolds' unintentional killing spree across the United States which will result in four deaths, including a beloved four-legged creature which no one ever forgives Tom for killing. Allegedly.

The show will premiere Saturday, June 9 at the new Trunk Space's Hope Hall (where Catholic masses are held in its less homicidal moments). Showtime is at 8 PM

Advance tickets for this show are available here
https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3433937

The second performance will be on Father's Day night, Sunday, June 17 at The Film Bar, a natural place for a film noir musical to come full circle!

Lonesome Leash (LA) / Hi My Name Is Ryan / Vintage Clothes

I hesitate to use the term "one-man-band" because so often it echoes anachronism, kitsch, and a romanticized past. Walt is none of those things. He is a literal "one-man-band," but his music is so much more than that trope--emotive, tense, musical works on accordion, drums, and occasional trumpet, drawing you into his world.

Lonesome Leash
NOLA transplant, and you hear it in these eclectic songs
https://lonesomeleash.bandcamp.com/

Hi My Name Is Ryan aka Ryan Avery
Feel-good, introspective, mostly acapella

all ages

Songwriter Katy avidso (preferred pronoun: they/them) revived the band Dear Nora in January 2017 when Orindal reissued the thirteen-year-old albu ountain Roc on vinyl. The reissue received great acclaim and the band toured the west and east coasts last year. Spurred by the momentum, Davidson decided to create the first album of new Dear Nora material in a decade, kulls Exampl (release date: May 25, 2018).

Davidson has been composing, recording, and performing for nearly twenty years. Davidson is from rural Arizona, has lived in Portland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, and currently resides in Twentynine Palms, California. Davidson has played under a handful of monikers, but Dear Nora is the one most widely recognized. Dear Nora originally started in 1999, release a handful of enigmatic, compelling albums throughout the early 2000s, and toured across the United States, Japan, Sweden and Australia. Throughout the years, the Dear Nora live band featured a rotating cast of band members, though oftentimes Davidson played solo. Davidson retired the band name Dear Nora in 2008 and began making music under the names Lloyd & Michael and Key Losers.

Davidson's music represents a spectrum of styles encompassing classic rock, experimental music, ethereal pop, new age, punk, and R&B. Davidson writes lyrics with layered meanings that contemplate the vast realms and intersections of wilderness, humanity, morality, technology, late capitalism, and love.

Eamon Fogarty: A "parade for the spirit" from New York, NY. New release Progressive Bedroom available on Joyful Noise Recordings.

In the words of Chris Schlarb, whose band Eamon has played in: " My attraction to honesty is relentless. Eamon Fogarty has no guile. He is as true as a bird singing in the trees. His music, like life itself, contains the beautiful and the grotesque. Some artists demand love from their audience. I don’t know how or why it works but I love Eamon’s music. I feel protective of it. When something that powerful calls out... you should pick up the phone."

Run-On Sunshine: Recently relocated to Sunshine City a.k.a. St. Petersburg, Florida, but back already for a visit!

Childhood Asthma: Super songs from Maya!

Sugar Skull Explosion: The best duo in the universe!

Phantom Party EP Release Show!

"A Year in Bed" is the new EP from Phantom Party and they're releasing it live at The Trunk Space with some great friends!! Also featuring: 

Troubled Minds
Zero Degrees North
Broke Hearts & Body Parts

Phantom Party is a three-piece indie band from Phoenix's East Valley, and have been working their own brand of "indie-surf" for the past two years. Now they emerge fresh, just 8 months after releasing their debut album, with "A Year in Bed," their first foray outside of the indie-surf genre and in a sonic direction all their own. 

Troubled Minds, lead by Matt Aldawood who produced "A Year in Bed" bring their own brand of anthemic emo with touches of punk rock, mathcore and indie. They've been destroying the local scene for years, and show no signs of slowing down any time soon. 

Zero Degrees North is a three piece "geek-punk" band with both an EP and a LP under their belt who bring more energy, fun and lust for life than you'll find anywhere else in the local Phoenix music scene. 

Broke Hearts & Body Parts is a pop-punk band from Glendale AZ. With punchy chords, emotionally poignant lyrics and passionate vocals, Broke Hearts is an up and comer you don't want to miss.
