Three queer-fronted musical acts doing original music are playing the New Deal Cafe in Greenbelt on March 8th at 7PM!
All Her Muses is a DC-based music project founded in 2017 by disabled poet/singer Natalie E. Illum and musician/composer Grey Jacks. They released their debut album “Not Speaking in Metaphor” in May 2022. The record is part punk, part heartbreak, part dance mix – inspired by unexpected breakups, depression cycles, and a few questionable decisions. All Her Muses features a rotating roster of guest musicians and artists, making each live (and live-streamed) performance unique. The current lineup includes harmony vocalist Kate Meuser, guitarist/vocalist Rachel Bee, Chapman Stick player Christian Crowley and accordion/Qchord player Sea Griffin.
Boy Meets Pearl are a carousel punk quintet of multi-instrumentalists with a lineup that includes accordion, glockenspiel, autoharp, Chapman stick, Bari Sax, cajon, cello and viola. They are fronted by multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter Sea Griffin and multi-instrumentalist/singer Christian Crowley. They write songs about things like time rifts, conjoined twins, tiger sharks and the meaning of life.
de ROCHE: Throughout her independent musical career, spanning many albums, EP’s, and collaborations, Liz is working on releasing her first solo album under the moniker de ROCHE (her last name, which means ‘rock’ in French). As de ROCHE, Liz digs into her raw emotionality to create an idiosyncratic style she bravely embraces. Her songs span multiple genres such as R&B, Electronic, Soul, Folk, and Pop.
Reservations are strongly encouraged for live music events at The New Deal Cafe.
