Brillig support Voltaire (NYC) – Cabaret Extravaganza TWO SHOWS!

If your music tastes lean towards murder ballads, tongue-in-cheek exercises in the macabre, with just enough bawdy songs about Star Trek and Star Wars to keep your inner nerd happy, you’re in luck!

All the way from New York City, modern day renaissance man VOLTAIRE is bringing his own brand of Neo-Victorian gypsy pirate tunes to Oz, with Adelaide’s own murder balladeers BRILLIG (trio) supporting him for two shows.

Brillig & Voltaire’s ‘Cabaret Extravaganza’ is a match made in Tim Burton’s heaven, and sure to be full of highly theatrical mayhem.

Not only is Voltaire a musician, but also a creator of comic books, animation and toys! His song “Brains!” features on the Cartoon Network show “The Grim Adventures of Billy And Mandy”, while his own first comic series “Chi-Chian” (a dark Cinderella story for the 31st century) was picked up as an animated web series by the Sci Fi Channel’s website.

When Hong Kong’s Toy2R made a toy of Voltaire’s comic book character, DEADY, it was an instant hit and lead to a string of other Voltaire toys including a line of “Pocket Goth” plush toys for Toy Network that can be found at all major USA amusement parks and crane machines at Walmart, Toys R Us, etc. Pretty cool, huh???

Don’t miss out!! (You never know what ‘Deady’ might do…..)
