TUE 2/3 Bowery Boston Presents: PUDDLES PITY PARTY at THE SINCLAIR

Puddles Pity Party is a band fronted by Michael Geier (as Puddles the Clown). The band also includes Geier's wife, Shannon Newton as the chimp-girl Monkey Zuma. The Puddles character was created in 1999 for the all-clown band called Greasepaint out of Atlanta. Puddles Pity Party is best known for appearing in several viral videos on YouTube since 2013, most notably with Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox. As Puddles, Geier is noted for his distinctive whiteface clown costume as well as his unusually tall height of 6 ft 8 in (2.03 m). Geier's baritone singing voice has been compared favorably with traditional popular singers such as Tom Jones.


Puddles appeared in Geier's "Dames Aflame" showgirl revue after Geier and Newton wrote material for Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, Puddles performed in Aqua Teen Hunger Force's 2010 tour. In 2011 Puddles regularly appeared in vaudevillian cabaret at Teatro ZinZanni.

THU 10/16 Bowery Presents: BLACK FRANCIS at ARMORY (Somerville)

THU 10/16 Bowery Presents: BLACK FRANCIS at ARMORY (Somerville)

Doors open at 6:30, show begins at 7:30 PM

Tickets $ 23 advance, $26 day of show.

Black Francis is the stage name contrived by and for Charles Thompson during his residency in college rock band the Pixies, a period that ran from the group’s formation in Boston during 1986 until 1993 when the group split up. Thompson’s next show business identity was as Frank Black, often in the bandleading context of Frank Black and the Catholics. Publishing bean counters can watch for songwritingcredits under both pseudonyms as well as under Charles Thompson; in the latter case he should not be confused with the famed classic jazz keyboardist whose works were recorded by Charlie Parker and many others. Thompson released many albums under his Frank Black moniker, but returned to the Black Francis name for 2007′s Bluefinger, which was a concept album about the life and death of Dutch painter/punk rocker Herman Brood and featured some of Black’s most ferocious rock in years. Still working under his Black Francis moniker, Black released the sexually charged NonStopErotik in 2010. Abbabubba, a B-sides and demos collection, arrived in 2011 along with The Golem, Francis’ score for the 1920 silent film of the same name.
