The Tiger Lillies: Devil’s Fairground

Joe's Pub

November 2, 3, 4, 5

For this very special show, the Grammy nominated, Godfathers of alternative cabaret The Tiger Lillies will perform from their brand new album.  The world of The Tiger Lillies is dark, peculiar and varied, with moments of deep sadness, cruel black humor and immense beauty. In this new show the band take you on a trip in to  to the Devil’s Fairground where temptation and sin await - will you survive to tell the tale or be seduced by the Golem?

Formed in 1989, The Tiger Lillies remain one of the most unique, provocative and genre-defying bands one could come across. 

The music they produce is a mixture of pre-war Berlin cabaret, anarchic opera and gypsy music, echoing the voices of Bertolt Brecht and Jacques Brel. 

Their songs cover all the dark aspects of life, from prostitution and drug addiction to violence and despair, always infused with a touch of twisted humor and sharp irony. 

They have participated in numerous shows all over the world, collaborating with artists of all disciplines: from circus performers to Shakespearean actors, experimental dancers to avant-garde photographers and burlesque puppeteers to classical music ensembles, and they won an Olivier award for their West End musical Shockheaded Peter (which they wrote and starred in).

This delicious dark cabaret is Kurt Weill as scripted by Aleister Crowley, and the execution is impeccable throughout. Phenomenal.

"★★★★★" - The Guardian

 “A remarkable performance, one which confounds their reputation as theatrical ironists and confirms that behind the greasepaint lurks genuine emotion.” - The UK Independent
