The "New Road Home Tour 2011" is the culmination of ongoing collaborations between DavEnd, Nomy Lamm, Erin Daly and Melodie Younce, exploring new possibilities for the embodiment of dreams. This performance includes multi-part harmonies, multi-media displays of affection, badass costumery, storytelling accordion, bass, guitar, violin, live looping, improvisation, audience participation, and good ole fashion queer magic. Weaving each artists' music into a cohesive vision, this show will remix notions of gender, sexuality, dis/ability, community and family, while tenderly, ferociously touching into themes of forgiveness, hope, and empowerment in these supposed "end times." Everyone is implicated.
Emerging from the Olympia riot grrrl scene of the early 90s, NOMY LAMM has brought her radically vulnerable message of body positivity to the whole wide world through a blend of zines, voice lessons, rock operas, performance art and collaboration. Currently she lives in San Francisco where she performs with Sins Invalid, a bay area project that creates work around disability, sexuality, social justice and embodiment. Her current musical project, nomy lamm & The WHOLE WIDE WORLD is a flexible platform for collaboration with everyone and everything, and in the moment, with Melodie Younce, Erin Daly, DavEnd, and Caldwell Linker.
DAVEND is a tender-hearted, genderqueer, costume designing, accordion wielding, songwriter and performer, based out of San Francisco. Currently, DavEnd is working on her 3rd studio album, “Likewize, I’m Sure” as well as finishing up a month long stint in Taylor Mac’s epic 5 hour play, ‘The Lily’s Revenge’. Ms End’s most recent performance project, Fabulous Artistic Guys Get Overtly Traumatized Sometimes: The Musical!, is the culmination of four years of nearly constant touring and performance, and brings together the worlds of music and radical performance art in a theatrical extravaganza, exploring the effects of heterosexism and street harassment on the development of queer identity.
