Help Produce Magical Chanteuse Jill Tracy's Haunting New Video

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, July 25, 2013 07:30pm | Post a Comment

We here at the Amoeblog are big fans of the San Francisco-based noir cabaret singer/pianist/storyteller and jill tracyone-time featured Amoeba Music Homegrown Artist Jill Tracy. Her beautifully chilling cinematic music, sophisticated lyrics, old-world glamour, and curious passion for strange tales has garnered her much attention and many awards over the years. With six albums to her name, Tracy’s music has appeared on CBS, NBC, PBS, numerous independent and feature films (including Jeremy Carr's surreal thriller Ice Cream Ants), and her song "Evil Night Together" was used to promote the last season of Dexter! What a delightfully macabre match!

Now this "femme fatale for the thinking man” (said the San Francisco Chronicle) who has elegantly carved her trademark style of glam noir music is raising funds via Kickstarter to finish a beautiful video for her song "Pulling Your Insides Out," directed by Jeremy Carr. Shot on location in Red Hook, Brooklyn (once home to legendary horror icon H.P. Lovecraft), the video features eerie cobblestone alleys, and an authentic NYC thunder and lightning storm which happened suddenly in the midst of shooting! See some sneak-peek footage from this lush video below and donate to the cause HERE!

Our favorite party people over at Hard French welcome Baltimore’s 22-year old emcee Rye Rye to Public rye ryeWorks on Saturday, August 3rd!

According to the 2013 BET Awards, Rye Rye is one of the reigning queens of hip-hop. Rye Rye’s Bmore beats and sharp lyrical stylings have attracted collaborators like MIA, Drake, Robyn, and the Scissor Sisters. Her BET nomination came in the middle of a stint (following in the footsteps of fellow rap diva heavyweight Lil Kim) making the A-list queer party circuit. Her recent gigs have included LA’s Mustache Mondays and New York’s Westgay.

For her opening act on August 3rd, Hard French has tapped Bay Area queer rapper Micahtron, who has held down party cyphers for years on the strength of her dope, lyrics-forward stage presence. The two are joined by DJ sets from Hard French (Carnita, Brown Amy), queer hip-hop monthly up-and-comers Swagger Like Us (Boyfriend, davO), and long-running dance party Mango’s Olga T.
