'Stop the Virgens'

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

The latest project by Karen O, lead singer of indie rock band Yeah Yeah Yeahs, is called “Stop the Virgens” – and it’s an operatic blend of technology, music, dance, and theater. Karen O and music director Sam Spiegel join us in the studio to explain the concept behind the world's first "psycho-opera." Plus, Karen and the show's guitarist, Jason Grisell, perform a live acoustic rendition of a song from the opera. 

"Stop the Virgens" will be at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn on October 19, 21 and 22 at 8 pm. More information here.

i saw it the other night. absolutely amazing. Karen O's voice is absolutely devastatingly haunting and beautiful.
my only gripe with the show, was that the standing room are did not afford much of a view of the stage.
otherwise, from what i did see, the set and the costumes were otherworldly and did evoke that dream state that the creators attempted to make.
Anyways, loved the show. The music made up for everything.
