SWEET SOUBRETTE RETURNS TO BROOKLYN WITH BIG BAND LINEUP Ukulele-powered indie rock gets brassy at Jalopy on 9/24 Sweet Soubrette, a ukulele-powered, cabaret-tinged indie rock band often compared to Amanda Palmer and The Magnetic Fields, returns to Brooklyn in big band formation after a summer hiatus. This show will include new material and will pack the stage with a full brass section featuring members of the Hungry March …Band and new music collective ThingNY.
Sweet Soubrett JalopySweet Soubrette’s last big band show (at Park Slope’s Southpaw) inspired The Brooklyn Paper to comment: “What’s better than a ukulele band backed by a horn section? Nothing. Not a thing.” The New York Press said: “Sweet Soubrette’s haunting vocals…cast a spell over the room.”
Sweet Soubrette’s latest album, Days and Nights (released in early 2011) has earned praise from reviewers: Worcester Magazine said: “This is a band that intuitively knows not just how to attract an audience, but also how to keep them there.” The Philadelphia Inquirer described Days and Nights as “dark vaudeville-pop…sensational.” 9:00pm: Sweet Soubrette 10:30pm: The Ukuladies $10 cover www.jalopy.biz
