Saturday March 7th at the Starry Plough in Berkeley - 8pm
We are sharing the bill with the funky and eclectic Lipbone Redding (we hear there might be throat singing, beat-boxing, and astonishingly realistic lip-tromboning) and Psychedelic-Folk Rock Brother Grand.

Conspiracy of Venus is a 30-woman vocal ensemble based in San Francisco, CA that explores the creative frontiers of music under the artistic direction of Joyce Todd McBride. We interpret Joyce’s daring and inventive arrangements of beloved songs, ranging from popular classics (Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi and David Bowie’s Life On Mars) to edgy contemporary pieces (Bjork’s Possibly Maybe), as well as original compositions by Joyce (including poems by Bertolt Brecht and Tess Ghallager set to music) with dazzling technical verve and tons of personality. The group’s repertoire also includes works by David Bowie, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, The Pixies, Bill Withers, Rufus Wainwright, and Roger Miller, and draws inspiration from medieval music, jazz, funk, and new music. Conspiracy of Venus takes vocal music into territories not often explored by more traditional choirs or college-style a cappella groups (though we are inspired by them too!).
