COCOROSIE | FEATURING TEZ 

NEW DATE: June 9, 2012 | 8PM

CocoRosie was formed in Paris, France by American sisters Bianca Casady (Coco) and Sierra Casady (Rosie). Definition eludes these artists as CocoRosie blends and manipulates what critics have described as indie, hip-hop, pop, blues, opera, and electronic music. They find duality between their unique vocal stylings, expanding those differences and playing music that expresses the inner and outer world of the characters in their songs. CocoRosie continues to develop an avant-garde and evolving musical journey.

Auntie's Fry Bread food truck will be serving up delicious Native American Fusion starting at 7pm!

Special Guests: Free Moral Agents and Sissy Nobby.
