Known for their clever lyrics, tight harmonies, and alt-country aesthetic, Ménage à Twang blends the sassy spirit of Loretta Lynn with the sardonic humor of Tina Fey. Formed at a Brooklyn bar in 2006, the band has spent the past five years honing their signature performance style at venues such as The Living Room, Pianos, Pete's Candy Store, Littlefield's, and Union Hall. Donning matching dresses and drawing on their theatre backgrounds, the ladies continue to entertain packed houses with acoustic guitars, anti-depressant pill bottle shakers, and snarky stage banter.

 

Their sophomore album, We Don't Judge, released in 2011, moves from irreverent rockabilly, to heartfelt folk, from catch camp sing-a-longs to banjo-backed hootenannies, with songs that address the increasingly specific needs of thirty-something city girls, including the desire for a good shrink, a fancy blender, and some back-up sperm. This June 1st at the Bell House, they'll be joined by the boys from Woodpecker, vocalist Liz Davito, and pianist Emily Khan - a perfect mix!
