Laurie Black: Space Cadette
SYNTHROCK sci fi NEO-CABARET
A journey through space and time, to escape the earth (cause it's a bit shit). Will Laurie Black be the first woman to set (stiletto) heel on the moon, and who will she meet along the way?
Forget C-3P0 and the other one! Laurie's got her synth and her tiny drum machine. Armed with an arsenal of original songs and quirky covers of Bowie and Bellamy, Space Cadette surges upwards to an electric, neo-cabaret genre previously unknown.
