|The Citizens Band make their SXSW debut at the Citizens Circus!
New York City's entertainment bible Paper magazine called them "the most exciting act in New York nightlife", and claimed that "their combination of Broadway showmanship and arty charisma make them the most appealing nightlife act to hit downtown in a long, long time." Now, NYC's most thrilling musical act The Citizens Band announce their SXSW debut at the Warby Parker Citizen's Circus in the grounds of the French Legation Museum at sundown on Monday 12, Tuesday 13 and Wednesday 14 of March. The free all-ages show features some of the Citizens Band's most glorious talents and promises to turn a little corner of Austin into the most glamorous place in Texas, the likes of which have never been seen before!
The Citizens Band are a musical troupe in the old fashioned sense of the word, a like-minded group of artists with an ever-changing line-up and boundless creativity. Hailing from a fantastic neverland that lies somewhere between a carnival sideshow and Weimar Berlin, The Citizens Band is a sexy, raucous, collaborative cabaret. Offering a unique blend of melodious song, dance and ariel ballet The Citizens Band’s primary goal is to entertain, but always with a sharp jab of the elbow to remind their audience of the state of the world and their place in it. A social conscience is at the core of their being and The Citizens Band likes to remind us that we’re all citizens of the same world.
Please let me know if you'd like to attend and/ or speak with members of The Citizens Band prior to or during SXSW. More information on the troupe and video clips of previous shows available here: http://www.thecitizensband.net
