      Frenchy and the Punk:
      On tour for the new album 'Hooray Beret'! For more than a decade Frenchy and the Punk, the quirky duo based in New York’s Hudson Valley, have been refining their own voice in many quadrants of the Balkanized post-punk world. They have essentially invented their own genre in which punk vitality and drive meets an evocative, cinematic way with exotic melodies and European-inflected percussive textures. A founding member of Deep Wound with J Mascis and Lou Barlow (Dinosaur jr), guitarist Scott Helland weaves dark riffs and layers of spidery melody in an acoustic/electric tone that is entirely his own. French-born singer Samantha Stephenson sings with a gothy heft and authority that may remind one generation of Siouxsie Sioux and another of Grace Slick. 2019 saw the release of their 6th album, Hooray Beret whose message of independence and the shedding of socially imposed identities is well-earned. They were named one of the ''Top 25 duos in America' by Yahoo Music Blog and have been performing all across the U.S., Canada and Europe since 2005 and most recently in West Africa. Their show, "like a Steampunk fairy tale with a serious case of wanderlust," is a carnival of two that will take you from the Moulin Rouge to CBGBs and back again. A rollicking cabaret rock show with Taiko meets Rio de Janeiro pounding drum instrumentals.
