Anna Wise
Anna Wise is a self-taught singer, song-writer, producer and director. Dabbling in multiple genres at once, one thing is consistent, Anna’s clear and present voice. She self-released The Feminine: Act I and the follow up The Feminine: Act II to international critical acclaim. Her music has been synced on screen for film and TV. Many describe her sound as dream-pop, R&B, experimental, Jazz, and a little bit punk.

When she performs live, Anna Wise provides a visceral experience. She doesn’t just sing live. She makes her own beats, loops her vocals, modulates her mixes and builds improvisational soundscapes on her Ableton setup. Anna is an innately, uniquely talented artist meant to be experienced live time and time again, as her set changes each and every performance.

Through collaboration Anna has exchanged energy with some of the world’s brightest flames. These collaborations include Chris Dave, Bilal, Terrace Martin, Thundercat and Kendrick Lamar. In 2016 she won a Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration with Kendrick Lamar for “These Walls”.

Anna’s May 25th show at le poisson rouge marks the Manhattan debut of her live, all female band.

L’Rain

L’Rain is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and singer whose sound borrows equally from 90’s R&B, music concrete, and ambient soundscapes. Both flippantly celebratory and lusciously introspective, her music is a meditation on the following: “The new black music is this: find the self and kill it.”

“…one-woman studio band…that’s a sea of loops: guitar arpeggios, synthesizer burbles, endless layers of vocal harmony.”

JON PARELES, NEW YORK TIMES

“…filled with experiments in looping, field recording, layered vocals and guitar arpeggios that call to mind th best moments of Stereolab or Frank Ocean’s Endless.”

TINY MIX TAPES

“A swelling orchestra of lush soundscapes and hypnotizing, layered melodies…multi-instrumentalist L’Rain…is beyond lovely. Soft spoken , at times, but pulsating with warmth…a gripping roller coaster of unexpected sounds and emotions…”

(Le) Poisson Rouge Event Tortoise at Le Poisson Rouge, 3-16-2016

(le) poisson rouge

(le) poisson rouge is a multimedia art cabaret founded by musicians on the site of the historic Village Gate. Dedicated to the fusion of popular and art cultures in music, film, theater, dance, and fine art, the venue’s mission is to revive the symbiotic relationship between art and revelry; to establish a creative asylum for both artists and audiences.

LPR prides itself in offering the highest quality eclectic programming, impeccable acoustics, and bold design. The state-of-the art performance space, engineered by the legendary John Storyk/WSDG, offers full flexibility in multiple configurations: seated, standing, in-the-round, and numerous alternative arrangements. The adjoining gallery space — The Gallery at LPR — functions as an art gallery, secondary bar, and event space. A work of art itself, the physical facilities are the embodiment of the experimental philosophy that drives the venue.

LPR is a source you can trust for exposure to visionary work, people of character, and a consistently dynamic environment. We invite you to immerse yourself in a nightlife of true substance and vitality.
