Le petite mort

The Little Death has played at Happy Ending before and they will play again. But first, they’ve got a new album and a new show this Wednesday. Meet them…

The Little Death is Laura Dawn (lead vocals), Moby (bass, guitar), Daron Murphy (guitar, bass, & harmonica) , and Aaron A. Brooks (drums). Formed in 2008, their sound is like a drunken bar fight between John Lee Hooker and Kurt Weill or the desperate love-child of Big Mama Thornton and Robert Mitchum. Old blues, soul, and vintage psychedelia slam behind songs about fucking and despair, blind joy and glorious dissolution, fronted by a white girl with a voice equal parts Bessie Smith and Dusty Springfield. Their packed live shows (featuring tight harmonies from backup singers Jamie Rae and Cherie Martorana, aka The Death Threats) are raucous and passionate–punk-rock fueled revivals for hungry souls.

See them…

Wednesday, August 12. 9:30 pm. Mercury Lounge, NYC.

Hear them…
