CROSS-POLLINATION CCLXXI - TUES JAN 26TH - 7:30-10 PM
JAGGERY
WALTER SICKERT & THE ARMY OF BROKEN TOYS

Jaggery is a Boston-based musical collective whose songs and sounds defy genre. Critics have used terms like "dark-wave jazz", "torture chamber pop", and "ethereal, avant- rock". Front-woman Singer Mali's multi-hued vocalizations conjure up emotion and atmosphere which can only be weighed on a global scale. Delicate or explosive, it's always magnificent, captivating, and sustained by a gorgeous tapestry woven by Petaluma Vale on Celtic harp, Tony Leva on upright bass, Rachel Jayson on viola, and Daniel Schubmehl on rich, organic percussion and drums.

Walter Sickert & the ARmy of BRoken TOys are a musical alchemy, fingering the rabbit hole of performance art. With their toys and voices they create a Death-Folk, SteamCrunk, Organic-Industrial experience.

******************

"Really, any fan of the Velvet Underground, the Dresden Dolls, or those haunted merry-go-rounds that turn up in horror movies shouldn't miss Walter and the Toys, who elegantly merge the essence of all three" Boston Globe

**************

"There is a curious blend of mischief and morbidity in Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys, as the duo of Sickert and Edrie are called. They garnish their ominous doom-folk with the theatricality of a demonic circus troupe. Past performances have included storytellers, fire-eaters, glass-eaters, contortionists and, of course, Edrie's broken toy army." Boston Herald
