ROSIN COVEN THIS FRIDAY AT THE STARRY PLOUGH

Rounding out an incredible series of Edwardian Ball 2011 Videos, videographer
extraordinaire Mark Day has just released a whimsical collection of “behind the
scenes” shorts featuring Vau de Vire Society and friends rehearsing and
preparing for The Ball!

This video features music by Rosin Coven, including a preview track of “Stay”
from their forthcoming album, due out this Fall!

ROSIN COVEN, MARK GROWDEN & SQUID INC.
This Fri May 27 @ The Starry Plough, Berkeley – 9pm  Please join Rosin Coven,

Lounge, at the legendary Starry Plough in Berkeley.

Their first live performance since this year’s spectacular Edwardian Ball
season, Rosin Coven performs early, onstage for the middle set at 9:45pm!

“A spellbinding blend of macabre cabaret with offbeat elements of jazz, ch
amber music, and dark ages gloom.” -East Bay Express

SQUID Inc. opens the night at 9pm – a string quartet playing amazingly
non-traditional, original arrangements by Darcy Rindt (viola) and featuring Beth
Vandervennet (aka Gingerbread Candy of Rosin Coven) on cello.
Longtime friend and musical co-conspirator Mark Growden closes out the night,
introducing new material from his upcoming album to be recorded in New Orleans.
Featuring Mark upfront on vocals and baritone sax, Myles Boisen on guitar, Chris

THE EDWARDIAN BALL is an elegant and whimsical celebration of art, music, theatre, fashion, technology, circus, and the beloved creations of the late, great author Edward Gorey. Set in “Edwardian” times, this multi-media festival has grown over the past decade from a small underground club night into an internationally recognized event, even earning the blessing of The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust.

The Edwardian Ball has been called “the quintessential must-never-miss event of the year,” “a defining annual San Francisco tradition,” and “a literary circus of the highest caliber” for good reasons… come see for yourself!
