The Tiger Lillies

The Tiger Lillies

“One of the weirdest and most disconcerting bands of all time... The prudish and the squeamish should avoid this show like the plague.” —Daily Telegraph, London

The deranged British cult band The Tiger Lillies serves up its sinister blend of corrosive lyrics, astonishing vocals and Brechtian cabaret for this wonderfully gruesome concert. Led by the fierce falsetto of vocalist Martyn Jacques, known as the “criminal castrati,” the Grammy-nominated three-piece band unflinchingly unfurls savage tales of prostitutes, drug addicts and other desperate souls. With an unseemly passion and a dark theatrical flair, The Tiger Lillies squeeze the vice out of their instruments—as Jaques growls and squawks with passionate love for the damned—to create a musical experience that is a little bit opera, a little bit vaudeville and very-very Weimar.
