Miami Light Project is proud to celebrate the start of our 24th Contemporary Performance Series with an exclusive engagement of the world renowned British band the Tiger Lillies, November 1-2, 2013 at the Light Box at Goldman Warehouse.

The Tiger Lillies defy any singular description and operate within their own eccentric definitions. Founded in 1989, the Tiger Lillies are Martyn Jacques (angel-voiced, accordion playing front man and song writer), Adrian Stout (upright Bass and toy sheep) and Adrian Huge (child’s drum kit and assorted plastic and wooden objects). Treading a fine line between Brecht/Weill opera, English music hall, Gypsy folk and even left-bank Parisian buskers, the Tiger Lillies are like no other band around and they tour the world, wowing audiences with their simply delicious, devilish music.

One moment their blasphemous, perverse irreverence shocks (often leaving their audience in uncontrollable fits of laughter), the next they still the air with beautiful ballads of death, cruelty or depravity. They move between punk-like clown ditties to deadly serious storytellers in the blink of an eye. No fear of taboos, their subject matter includes rape, crucifixion, bestiality, murder or prostitution, more often than not with a hidden morality at the root of each song. Jacques has a wonderfully clear vision of the world’s inequality, if seen from an all too blood shot eye.

As a result, they captivate with every word and timeless sound they make. For fans (they have a cult following throughout many cities of the world) there is also the fun of being part of something that is so shocking, so naughty! The band pushes all limits; wanting to know how close to damnation each of us is willing to go. And if damnation is on the cards, the Tiger Lillies are taking the express elevator down and from listening to their gorgeous music; they appear to love every second of the ride!
