FULL DESCRIPTION: Cello Rock Siren Polly Panic is back with the release of her third studio album “Losing Form”. Seasoned performer in her own right, and member of the celebrated cello rock band Rasputina, the fall brings shopping the album to labels and touring the SE, aiming to spread word of the soul crunching cello rock. The first 2 Polly Panic albums received reviews such as, “Polly Panic is chamber rock’s dismissal of “radio” rock. “ A nucleus of cello, drums and vocals drive these tunes. The listener is immediately struck by an assaulting tenderness entangled with dark, odd metered theater. Think PJ Harvey meets Captain Beefheart.”(Robert Church, Radio FM Syndication”)” . Visually the show is just as intriguing with the performers all painted in one color (emotion) and physical antics that ebb and flow with the music. This show is not to be missed.
MORE INFO: Polly Panic has done years of shows, national tours, and is also a member of the ground-breaking cello rock band, “Rasputina”
