lauren o'brien is punk cabaret
...with a dash of poetry and spices of comedy—fierce, fearless, and a force to be reckoned with, according to international recording artist Rachael Sage. Lauren is constantly evolving.…from actress to lyricist for the rock band PAO (featuring Janice Robinson and Emmy winner Fred Shehadi); from fronting a band in the vein of Patti Smith to writing and performing acoustic rock.
Lauren has played festivals such as NYC’s CMJ, Howl! Fest, MEANY Fest, The Seaside Music Festival, The NY Funny Songs Festival, and The Joys of Hemp Festival, and toured throughout the United States and Canada. Her two studio albums, Inconsequential Dream & Panic, earned her two New Century Music Awards. Lauren will be releasing new material throughout 2016, The sound is either a love affair between Amanda Palmer and The Pixies or Lene Lovich romancing Charlie Chaplin, depending who you ask.
Lauren O’Brien takes her fans from the spoken word onto a circus ride through never-never land, then kicks their rocknroll asses all over town. If you hang out with her after the show, who knows where you’ll end up…
