Coming Soon!

After some time in the garage, Sidecar Syndicate returns! We will debut a brief excerpt of our new show at the Midsummer's Daydream Festival on August 14. "Silver and Shadow" casts music by Ives, Hege, and Carson adrift in a seemingly familiar coastal setting; it is a myth that welcomes poets and parlor girls, lovers and longshoremen. In the fog of this dream, Sidecar Syndicate sources Edgar Allen Poe and Percy Grainger and blurs the lines between text and song. Like two sirens, Anne Hege (voice, electronics) and Heather Heise (pianos, voice and accordions) act as guides through a through-composed set of art songs and crafted electronic interludes.
