Armed with an electric violin, bass and ukulele, Bitch, (formerly of Bitch and Animal) has launched her new band, Bitch and The Exciting Conclusion, in collaboration with Daniela Sea (The L Word) and is touring nationally with such idols as The Indigo Girls, Ferron, and Melissa Ferrick, to promote her most recent record "Make This/Break This," a new release from Kill Rock Stars. Film audiences can also catch her in John Cameron Mitchell's (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) latest feature, "Shortbus." Since the beginning of her career, being taken under the wing of Ani Difranco, Bitch has pulled audiences to their feet world-wide with her music that she considers "electric folk" and is symphonic, beatworthy, break-your-heart ballad-y, and raise the roof revolutionary.
Keeping the party going all night long comes the dark, drum machine-rocking anthems of Ex-Members. Thumping beat-maker Melissa York creates the frame for David K's angular post-punk guitar sounds that stretch across to give Shirlé Hale's smoky vocals and pounding bass a surface to create a ferocious electro-rock party vibe. "It's a dance-rock party that would fit in nicely between LeTigre and the Gossip, only Hale's low, smoky vocals are more like Chrissie Hynde..." says Pitchfork.
Ringing in the night will be the ever charming and witty Midtown Dickens. The multi-tasking, antifolk, adoracore duo that's been creating excessive nonsensical categories to fit ourselves into since 1982.
Come on out and getdown!
