Three Floors of Madness
Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre
New York downtown darling Joey Arias joins multi-genre maverick Charly Zastrau as they revive the spirit of NYC’s legendary Club 57. Pioneer of the infamous ‘57 scene, Arias’ attitude packed ode resurrects the mythic club in all its pointy toed, rockabilly petticoated, spandex panted, thrift store stiletto heeled glory.
Drawing influence from the unique style of Bernard Hermann, Arias and Zastrau breathe life into the past through their own contemporary songs. Far from a nostalgic look back, Three Floors of Madness is a spectacle of song, projections, and performance art that says Devo, Duchamp and Burroughs are still better than disco.
