Emily Danger (Dark Cabaret) Plays Rockwood Music Hall on Nov. 23rd / New Album (2014 Release) Available for Pre-Sale
Substituting lead guitar for lead violin using electronic pedals, looping, and computerized drums, Emily Danger is known for their modern and accessible sound. Described as “Radiohead meets Jeff Buckley and Heart”, Emily's voice packs a punch with her over four-octave range and incredible versatility. Emily Danger is playing an early show at Rockwood Music Hall this Saturday, Nov. 23rd - the band takes the stage at 8PM and cover is the usual "one drink minimum per set".

The band just released, "Easy Remix" (streaming above), which is the first single off the upcoming Emily Danger full-length album Peace Arch (to be released in early 2014). Breaking out of their former folk rock shell, the NYC-based indie band Emily Danger dives deeper into their dark cabaret sound by remixing their catchy folk ballad “Easy” into a magnificent new rendition featuring the distinct operatic vocals of Emily Nicholas over shivering strings and minimalist percussion. The accompanying music video is a true work of art that abstractly explores the very dynamic between hunter and prey and what it means to be human. Shot in the San Bernardino Mountains, the video tells the suspenseful story of a man and his son who fall prey to an unexpected hunter. The band regularly address social, political, and feminist issues in their songs and desire to connect to their audience as well as inspire change with their words. The recording and music video for “Easy Remix” are the very embodiment of that change.



Emily Danger was formed in 2011 in New York after a sold-out cabaret show of oddball covers and original music written by lead vocalist Emily Nicholas and drummer Ryan Nearhoff. The entire band is classically trained and joined forces to shed their former conservatory backgrounds and create orchestral, dark rock ‘n’ roll. Emily's powerful vocals compliment Cameron's violin virtuosity while Ryan's theatrical arrangements create the band's unique sound.
