Bellas Bartok w/s/g Yestrogen
Zenbarn is thrilled to welcome back Bella’s Bartok for a special Mardi Gras show with special guest Yestrogen!!
Bellas Bartok is a live performance unlike any other. Think Siouxsie Sioux covering Frank Zappa playing trombone in Tom Waits basement during the French Revolution.
Started in the dimly lit alleyways of Great Barrington, MA, Bella’s Bartok gradually evolved from street-punk performers to an electric, brass-filled, accordion-based spectacle that has continued to entertain audiences for nearly a decade. The line-up includes: Asher Putnam (Lead Vocals), Dan Niederhauser (Bass, Vocals), Amory Drennan (Trombone, Vocals), Crisco (Drums/Percussion, Vocals), Gershon Rosen (Trumpet, Vocals), Alex Kogut (Accordion, Keyboard, Vocals) and Lucas Solórzano (Guitar, Vocals). The band has shared the stage with musicians and acts such as Rubblebucket, Red Baraat, The Indigo Girls, Larry & His Flask, The Suitcase Junket, Parsonsfield, And the Kids, Kanye, Rough Francis, Beau Sasser’s Escape Plan, West End Blend, Adam Ezra Group, Meat Puppets, World Inferno/Friendship Society, Rupa & the April Fishes, Arc Iris, and many more. Find Bella’s Bartok on a variety of stages, at a myriad of festivals, or on the street across the continental United States. Audiences often pick up on the band’s main influences such as Frank Zappa, System of a Down, Tom Waits and Oingo Boingo.
Yestrogen is an all-queer, all-femme, sweetheart pop rock band that will melt your heart and your face in a single song. Christine and Julia Kate slam on lead guitars and alongside bassist Clairbot 9000, sing goosebump-inducing three-part harmonies. Manstrogen drummer Django throws down the rhythm.
