Toy Pianos, Accordions and Drunken Revelry!

On Sunday, March 11, 2012, The Columbia City Theater will host an eclectic evening featuring Seattle’s The Bad Things, Bay Area chanteuse Eliza Rickman and the Toy-Box Trio. Each of these artists has recently gain notoriety in the neo-cabaret and steampunk communities but labeling them as “steampunk” is doing each a serious disservice. Their music transcends overnight trends, infused with a hard-won authenticity that’s hard to find amongst the goggle and corset set.

While The Bad Things, Eliza Rickman and Toy-Box Trio share a love for eclectic instrumentation and old-world charm, they also possess their own unique, and decidedly modern, approach to songwriting. Don’t write this off as another “neo-cabaret” or “steampunk” night. This is something much more. This will be a night of haunting soundtracks, ethereal compositions and raw, drunken emotion.

Added bonus: This will be the first session of live recordings for an upcoming live Bad Things album! Come add your drunken wailing!

Advanced tickets are available via Brown Paper Tickets at: or via phone at 1-800-838-3006.
