Hudson/Catskill dark carnival band Dust Bowl Faeries will be playing a set of up-tempo dark cabaret songs at the much beloved Catskill venue AVALON LOUNGE on FRIDAY OCTOBER 22nd, with projections by Lisa M. Thomas of Thin Edge Films and an opening set by singer-songwriter Brad Berk.

Come early for some fantastic Korean food (vegan/GF options), enjoy a drink at the Avalon Lounge bar, and if you are feeling the Halloween spirit, please wear a costume or disguise! Sit and enjoy the show, or dance like a rogue woodland faerie, anything goes.

A faerie-tale fusion of circus, gothic folk and post-punk music -
Dust Bowl Faeries is a dark-carnival band from the New York Hudson Valley. The band’s eclectic repertoire of songs draw inspiration from dark lullabies, murder ballads and Eastern European folk music. Accordion, singing saw, acoustic guitar, lap-steel, bass and percussion combine to create the Dust Bowl Faeries otherworldly sound. The band was founded by Ryder Cooley (faerie queen) and her taxidermy spirit animal Hazel the Ram. Ryder and Hazel are joined by Jon B. Woodin (rocket faerie), Liz LoGiudice (river faerie), Rubie LaRue (feisty faerie) & Andrew Stein (time faerie). Dust Bowl Faeries released their recent album, The Plague Garden, in 2020. Previously, they released two EP’s and a self titled debut album featuring Tommy Stinson (Replacements) & Melora Creager (Rasputina).
