Tiger Lillies creepy cabaret punk




Matt Groening is curating one of the All Tomorrow's Parties music festivals in Somerset, England this May, and the lineup is fantastic, featuring Iggy and the Stooges, Coco Rosie, Daniel Johnston, Joanna Newsom, and a bunch of other acts. Also playing is the surreal three-piece Tiger Lilies, whose spooky Brechtian cabaret style is sure to give you nightmares that will shock and entertain. For example, please to enjoy the wonderful video for Tiger Lillies' "Living Hell." It was directed by San Francisco photographer Mark Holthusen. Also worth noting is that in 2003, Tiger Lilies released a collaboration with Kronos Quartet and Edward Gorey in which they translated some of his unpublished stories into songs. The resulting CD, The Gorey End, was nominated for a Grammy. (Thanks, Chris Edmundson!)
