Thinguma*jigSaw in Syracuse May 22nd

From Metropolis Underground:

Thinguma*jigSaw: Two elusive, exceptional, pivotal personalities – cunningly spinning a web of flamboyant brouhahas within the idiom of their own device: charming, clever, generous, sinister splatterfolk. Splatterfolk combines elements of traditional Irish/British/American folk with contemporary art music, and spices it up with lyrical and musical components usually associated with horror films, experimental theatre and modernistic poetry. There is also an abundance of film and popcultural references. It’s the new revolution within the folk music – scene of today, and you will find no finer exponents of this subversive art than Thinguma*jigSaw.

Sooki & The Sting Rays: One Christmas, not long ago, two best friends, Wednesday Shedd and Ray McAndrew, both got ukuleles. They formed Sooki and The Sting Rays, a duo band from Syracuse. They play hardcore death metal music with a twist.
