Two showtimes due to popular demand – 7:30pm & 9:00pm
Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys is musically sophisticated, immensely talented, and wildly unusual - diverse in material and presentation; a Dada-esque dustbowl circus carnival run amuck.
This eight piece acoustic rock band is comprised of visual artist and Impresario Walter Sickert (vox, guitar, piano), Edrie (accordion), Rachel Jayson (viola), Matt Zappa (percussion), Mary Widow (vox, mandolin), jojo Lazar (ukulele), Blake Girndt – aka Brother Bones (guitar), and Mike Leggio (bass).
Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys have a large New England following and routinely tour both the US and internationally. The band not only executes rock shows, but have also written and performed an award winning musical 28 Seeds with sell-out performances at the Boston Center for the Arts as well as reprising the musical Shockheaded Peter in partnership with Company One, which won several industry awards for Best Musical, Best Actor (Walter Sickert), Best Sound and Best Artistic Design. Walter was recently honored by the Nashville Film Festival for Best Music for the score he composed for the film Some Freaks which will have its international release in August 2017.
Walter has designed the art and music for this special performance to be an immersive voyage from start to finish. Join us for an apocalyptic party in space that starts on Earth and jettisons out through surrealist multiverses into rabbit black holes straight through the psychedelic planetarium maw!
