Noir chanteuse Jill Tracy has good reason to celebrate these days- she was just written up in the New York Times, Anne Rice personally invited her to perform at this year's New Orleans Halloween Masquerade Ball, her song "Evil Night Together" is prominently featured in the new film remake of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. (And let's not forget her now-legendary performance as guest on Dee Snider's Sirius Satellite radio show.) But most of all-- her long-awaited fourth CD The Bittersweet Constrain is finally out--from her own "elegant netherworld" to the real one.

Miss Tracy is honoring the city's artistic spirit by assembling a CD release celebration June 11 at DNA Lounge, featuring many music, variety and circus performers she's collaborated with over the years--as well as her fearsome back-up ensemble The Malcontent Orchestra.

"This is a celebration for all of us--the triumph and travails of the independent artist." Tracy explains. "I've concocted the evening to be unveiled as a cabinet of curiosities...from classical Indian music, to magic, to vampire waltzes---eccentric and diverse acts rarely seen on one stage together. Come early, stay late--the entertainment will cast a spell all through the night."

$15-25 sliding scale supports the evening's performers.
