Edward Gorey's "The Curious Sofa"
"The Curious Sofa offers the ultimate in pornographic joy, combining naughtiness to the limit of the imagination and laughter to the point of breathlessness."
Hailed by LA Weekly as “the cult darling of the underworld,” Jill Tracy, “Belle of The Edwardian Ball,” returns for another provocative performance that brings the waltzing dance floor to life.
With her signature concoction of dark parlour and classical piano, haunting lyrics and seductive style, she creates a sound that conjures up glamorous shades of dark cabaret, early cinema, and film noir— but with a distinctively modern flair.
“Best of the Bay” award winner, Jill Tracy was described in the SF Bay Guardian as “inimitable …a shining beacon of almost beatific grace.” Los Angeles Times recently named her a “modern musical icon.”
NPR’s All Things Considered calls her “utterly intriguing…transporting you into a magical world solely of her creation.”
Dark Garden’s crew of dedicated corset makers, helmed by Autumn Adamme, has been making the world a curvier place to be since 1989, offering a safe space for people of all shapes and sizes to be fabulous. Their corsets, costumes and gowns are world renowned for exceptional quality and fit, not to mention beauty.
