Bay Area experimental music goddess Amy X Neuburg performs what she calls avant-cabaret, using plenty of electronics (she's an expert at looping) and her Oberlin-trained voice to create an Ani-goes-to-the-opera-as-a-one-woman-band-slash-DJ vibe. She's been performing for more than 10 years, with lauds from the Village Voice, New York Press and Musician magazine, to name just a few, and often is compared to '80s avant-garde pop star Laurie Anderson. Colorado College's Great Performers & Ideas program brings Ms. X and her inventive ways to our own burgeoning creative acre next Thursday. Let's hope a little bit of her awesomeness rubs off on our own community.
