"BEST PERFORMANCE ART" show of 2016! (Best of Chicago 2016)
The Champagne Room is a magical room that has been secretly hidden for years. Inside lives Champagne Jerry and his entourage, the Champagne Club, with enough cheap gold, dance, effervescence, and memories to last a lifetime. Semi-retired performance artist Neal Medlyn returns with songs from his notorious career to help open the Champagne Room for a performance and event that will change everyone’s life. This is Champagne Jerry in the Champagne Room feat. Neal Medlyn.
Named one of the top ten best performers in New York by Time Out, profiled in Rolling Stone, Brooklyn Vegan and Interview Magazine, Champagne Jerry is a project of Neal Medlyn alongside collaborators Max Tannone, Adam Ad-Rock Horovitz and his onstage entourage of Tannone, Sophia Cleary, Farris Craddock and the Ghost of Champagne Past. Champagne Jerry continues Medlyn's work in his Pop Star Series.
Hosted by the great Mr. Julian Fleisher, this event should be tons of fun, so come!
I'm opening for the genius Bridget Everett in one of the towns I am on the record as loving best, TAMPA! Come check this one out, ya'll!
We're doing a set like we've never done before at PRF BBQ an amazing festival with exactly 7 drillion other great bands in the wonderful city of Chicago at a locality known as Township. COME OUT!
Welcome to the Champagne Room: a magical hideaway open to the public for an exclusive, limited engagement by hip-hop sensation Champagne Jerry. Joining him are his onstage entourage of miscreants known as the Champagne Club, a rotating cast of others including Neal Medlyn, Adam Horovitz, Kathleen Hanna, Bridget Everett, the House of Larreon, Carmine Covelli and a series of real and invented bands. Revel in a world of cheap gold, dance, effervescence and memories to last a lifetime via a one-time-only epic performance event celebrating the release of CJ’s new album; an acclaimed, sold-out tour of Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club parking lots across the Southeastern seaboard from the back of a van; and a suite of videos directed by Jason Cacioppo. “Simultaneously catchy, affecting, creepy, endearing, funny, puzzling, and profoundly strange” (Blouin ARTINFO), this is Champagne Jerry in the Champagne Room featuring Neal Medlyn.
