THE KNOCKOUT BLOW

"Paired babes in off-the-shoulder lamé with winky, wistful dialogue (Jess Barbagallo played a depressed werewolf) and set it all to Chris Giarmo’s synthesizer-mad, ’80s-esque avant-ballads.”
-
Helen Shaw, Time Out New York

“With terrific music by Chris Giarmo, this concert-cum-performance-piece is a delightful piece of work, and the performers, to coin a phrase, can knock a song out of the park... highly recommended.”
-George Hunka, Superfluities Redux

Three girls inhabit an infectiously weird and dissonant, yet raucously sing-along world where the story of a contemporary werewolf explores dislocation, heartbeats and saying really stupid things when you want to say the most important thing of all.
