«The art-pop duo and original poster-boys for New York City's electroclash scene» (NPR) have come storming back with a fresh embrace of sensuality, lust, and love, and a new stage show that is not for the prudish. As pioneers of the early '00s electroclash movement, FISCHERSPOONER combined sly performance art with elements of new wave and techno, leading wild dance parties with unabashed showmanship.
Frontman Casey Spooner and co-writer/producer Warren Fischer have moved through different creative periods in the years since. 2005's Odyssey was a muscular, commercial collection, their first and only for Capitol Records, but when tourin...g wrapped behind the record, Spooner returned to his roots as a stage actor, joining the experimental New York performance ensemble The Wooster Group. Sir, the band's first new record in nine years, is filled with dance-floor-ready jams and boasts a gaggle of collaborators, including Michael Stipe, Caroline Polachek of Chairlift, and Beyoncé-collaborator Boots.
JULIANA HUXTABLE, «a mind whose output transcends prescribed limitations,» (artnet) is a multi-faceted artist who explores the intersections of race, gender, queerness, and identity in various formats—through music, social media, self portraiture, and performance. She also knows her way around a turntable, and will DJ prior to Fischerspooner’s set.
