Dances of Vice pays tribute to classic cartoons of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s like Silly Symphonies, Felix the Cat, Betty Boop, Looney Tunes and more at the vintage chic Liberty Hall / Ace Hotel, featuring live big band cartoon music and hot jazz by Brian Carpenter’s Ghost Train Orchestra! With special guests Molly Crabapple, Michael Karas and DJ Miz Margo.
Brian Carpenter’s Ghost Train Orchestra performs unearthed music mined from the dusty vaults of a basement record collection, new arrangements of “voodoo music” and spirited stomps from the most incredible of the late 1920s Chicago and Harlem jazz bands. Their debut album “Hothouse Stomp” will see a release date of March 8 2011 on Accurate Records.
