Fischerspooner to preview new live show in New York

FISCHERSPOONER TO PREVIEW NEW LIVE SHOW AT THE PERFORMING GARAGE

'BETWEEN WORLDS' TO BE REVEALED IN 3 INTIMATE NEW YORK SHOWS ON APRIL 23th, 24th AND 25th

Fischerspooner celebrate the release of their third studio album Entertainment, out May 5th on FS Studios, with the premiere of their new show at New York City's historic venue The Performing Garage. The group has decided to open the final 3 rehearsals of their new stage show for an extremely limited audience of only 60 people. It is a rare opportunity to see this show up close, raw and in a very intimate setting.

Currently rehearsing and finalizing details in New York, Casey Spooner describes the show: "This is not like any show we have done before. The songs of the current album and other songs from our catalogue are set against a visual and sonic collage made from disparate literary and historical sources and theatrical traditions - the US space program in the 60's, Noh and Kabuki theater, Flamenco, Mark Twain and other disparate sources.  It sounds strange and ridiculous but it all adds up. It becomes a very American story about ambition, experimentation, danger and the frontier. We wanted to create a show where it was impossible to decipher history or specific references. We are in a different place a decade later and this show reflects that."

Fischerspooner's live shows combines elements from the worlds of art, fashion, theatre and music. Front man Casey Spooner leads the pack of performers on stage with him through an orchestrated dialogue between avant-garde technique, classical tradition, and pop frivolity. Costumes, choreography and stagecraft collide to create a surprising new musical performance that is both flamboyant and tough.
