C O /\/\ /\/\ /\ /\/ D O
...a radical queer collaborative music collective, here represented by the forces of CHRISTEENE, KRYLON SUPERSTAR, BIG DIPPER, VAN JACKSON-WEAVER, & THE LIVING EARTH SHOW, C O /\/\ /\/\ /\ /\/ D O is coming to you LIVE in SAN FRANCISO for the first time ever to deliver a raw package the likes of which the world has never seen.
The Family reports…
“For us, the six members of this incarnation of C O /\/\ /\/\ /\ /\/ D O, making queer-centric nü-metal in 2016 represents a rejection of pop culture and an important, radical act. Appropriating this noxious and comically unhip subgenre—which achieved cultural dominance in the late 90s as a tool for homophobia and misogyny, and exists as a cultural punch line today—and recontextualizing it as a sincere space to revel in queerness is the most beautiful thing we can think to do right now.”
GET YOUR ASSES IN GEAR cuz this hot shit is landing at THE RICKSHAW STOP for one night only on JANUARY 11th, 2017, for your viewing pleazures.
CARLETTA SUE KAY
Carletta Sue Kay is equal parts Marianne Faithful, Joanna Newsom and Emmylou Harris, coupled with the song writing styles of Stephen Merritt and Cole Porter. CSK is named after singer-songwriter Randy Walker's real-life cousin who served a prison sentence for domestic terrorism and threatening to blow-up her ex-boyfriend with a pipe bomb. This is an auspicious inspiration for a musical persona who, performing with an obvious five-o'clock shadow, sings heart-wrenching yet transformative songs of love, life, and relationships told from the perspective of a woman. The debut Carletta Sue Kay LP 'Incongruent' (Kitten Charmer) and. Randy Walker, aka Carletta recorded backing vocals with the Magnetic Fields on their 10th album Love at the Bottom of the Sea (Merge).
"Perhaps the most obvious comparison for Mr. Walker's gender- and genre-bending approach would be Antony Hegarty, the androgynous singer with an angelic voice...but Mr. Walker is more in the realm of sweaty rock 'n' roll than torch songs: his voice, a tenor, can easily slide up and down the scale." --New York Times
"Carletta Sue Kay is the female alter-ego of SF musician Randy Walker, and this identity shift pushes his art in some astonishing directions. Androgynous to its core, and loaded with overtones, his vocal delivery as Carletta Sue Kay can recall Annie Lennox, Gene Ween, and Joanna Newsom, all in the same breath." --Bay Guardian
