 Frenchy and the Punk – Elephant Uproar Tour

Frenchy and the Punk’s Elephant Uproar Tour is set for October 26th and runs through November 30th, 2013.

Frenchy is Samantha Stephenson, French-born Brit. who sings in both French and English, and the Punk is Scott Helland, who was a founding member of punk band Deep Wound with J Mascis and Lou Barlow.

The duo has toured yearly since 2005 across the US and in Europe. The tour is on the heels of this year’s CD release Elephant Uproar which highlights the duo’s Taiko meets Rio de Janeiro drumming instrumentals as well as the new music video for the track Rock Paper Scissors filmed in the deserts of Nevada. It is the follow-up to last year’s vocal and guitar based Hey Hey Cabaret CD. The tour will span the US from Seattle to Pennsylvania.

Frenchy and the Punk is one of the go-to bands on the steampunk cabaret circuit. The NY-based duo will be performing their high energy and eclectic Folk Punk Cabaret style at Steampunk conventions and music clubs.
