Review from Vancouver Show 6/6/16

Opening act Glockabelle‘s retro-synth cabaret has a strong playful element and childlike zeal for simple stories on vintage and exotic instruments (i.e. early Casio keyboards, drum machine and a glockenspiel.) Sung in both French and English, Annabelle Cazes performed her charming one-woman show in the presence of a stuffed tiger (honourary bassist) and a live napping drummer, whom Cazes tucked in beneath a blanket between songs about a variety of anthropomorphic animals that (respectively) have a barbecue, kiss, and fall into a swimming pool. While a clear departure from the concerts Factory Worker Media typically covers, King’s and Cazes’ performances were a thrilling reminder that the transgression of boundaries in music can occur anywhere along the genre spectrum. An inspiring example of unique creative expression.
