A Dresden Doll

Originally uploaded by Charrmer.
Brian Viglione, the drummer half of the Dresden Dolls pounds away with a multitude of extreme expressions washing over his face. His persona is so mime-like in his presentation and movements that when he actually speaks it comes a quite a surprise. It's an interesting mixture of cabaret meets children's toyroom with a bit of goth flavor mixed in. Their website calls it "...brechtian punk cabaret..." I haven't a clue what that means but I found their music unlike anything else out there right now and the mixture of her earthy storytelling lyrics, the rhythmic pounding of his drumming and her soulful piano to be a delicious mix. The musical duo originates from Boston and performed at Harlows last week to a sold-out crowd.
