Emilie Autumn & Trunk Show

Bat Country Booking presents a night of unique music and captivating performances with Emilie Autumn (USA) & Trunk Show (DE)

Emilie Autumn, Courtney Love's "anarchy violinist" returns to the stage and is keeping the spotlight all to herself.

With guest spots on the albums of such artists as Love, Billy Corgan, and Die Warzau under her corset strings, EA's devilishly dark lyrics and industrial-strength voice reinvent "gothic".

Chosen by Interview Magazine as one of their "14 Artists to Watch" , EA's stage show is a sexy circus of gothic burlesque, backed by her all-girl band.

Her latest album, "Opeliac", is written in the style she calls "victoriandustrial" and draws upon EA's influences as a child prodigy classical violinist and combines them with her passion for the harsh industrial of Laibach & Front 242, the sublime melodicism of Depeche Mode, and the drama of Moi Dix Mois and Visual Kei.

Accentuated by EA's signature metal-style violin shredding, heartbreakingly lush strings, and menacing lyrics growled with enough intensity to make your hair stand on end, the resulting noise is a harpsichord-heavy romp through Victorian asylums where screaming is allowed and girls always get revenge.

Supporting Emilie is Trunk Show. A Trunk Show is a collection of costumes, trinkets, ornaments, props, bullwhips, facades, old boots, love-letters from lonesome ol' girl in Ft. Worth (the stationary reads "Bluebird Motel" and the pages smell of rose salve, gun powder and L'air du Temps – reeks of scattered optimism), leftover baggage, and forgotten characters. There's a hot plate, eggs, bacon, baked beans, bourbon-soaked bread pudding, and strong coffee...

This is what the music sounds like. Trunk Show's distinct and captivating sound comes from an eclectic array of items: sheet metal, guitars, large pieces of firewood, a banjo, assorted junk percussion including baby-doll heads played over large cheese-graters, saxophone, lots of shoes, three-part harmony, the sound of breaking glass, organs...
