2010-11-13 Syrens of the South with The Dresden Dolls

The Dresden Dolls got back together from working on their solo projects to put together a fall tour that came to The Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta, GA.  As part of Amanda Palmer's desire to help promote local performers they booked the band Lille and Syrens of the South.

Syrens of the South opened the show with a short, 30 minute set that included Katherine Lashe MCing and Burnadette Cinders who brought the house down with her bellydance skills to They Might Be Giants' Istanbul not Constantinople and her wonderful announcement that she is with child.  Then the mistress of Illusion Fonda Lingue took the stage and wowed the audience with her shimmy, shake and don't ask don't tell pastie policy.  Closing the show was the legs that make you beg Lola le Soleil with her eye popping balloon act that had the crowd begging for more.

After the Syrens were done Lille took the stage for an amazing home grown act that was a wonderful opener to the amazingness that is The Dresden Dolls.  The crowd went wild and sang along to all of the songs, it was an amazing evening for everyone involved and we hope to see The Dresden Dolls back in Atlanta real soon!
