Calliope Musicals .
Pianos (Showcase Room)
Calliope’s antic live shows are a blast of secondhand glam fueled by an inclusive yet otherworldly sound. Lush keys and guitars provide propulsion for lift-off, or lube for a love-in, as Fussell’s lyrics slip in her resilient confessions.
The joyous, quixotic defiance of “Color/Sweat” is a party for the end of this world and a journey to the next one. When asked to sum up the spirit of Calliope, Carrie herself put it: “We came from space. We’re all going to die. That’s why we dance.”
