Singer, violinist, poet, pink-haired victorian chanteuse Emilie Autumn comes back to play the Glass House this week with her all-female backing band The Bloody Crumpets—and it's been a big year for the gothic beauty. She released a new album, Fight Like a Girl, over the summer and announced an ambitious theater project to debut the three-hour musical version of her autobiographical novel at London's West End theatre. But her live shows are a thing of marvel—equal parts performance art and mad violin laced up with burlesque. This is pop gone a little crazy—industrial grit, polished melodies and dark lyrics over tea and cookies.
