Cabaret connoisseurs the Bearded Ladies return with another platter of deliciously dangerous, sensationally sweet, and provocatively pleasurable Late Night Snacks. Running throughout the Fringe Festival in a refitted East Passyunk industrial space, these after-hours performances feature different artists every night—from opera singers to drag queens, cabaret stars to art clowns, and everything in between.

About the Artists

Daniel de Jesús is a painter, composer, and songwriter versed in the worlds of visual & sonic tapestries. His musical practice of building tribal beats, ambient sonic spaces, and gut wrenching string arrangements with soaring vocals has taken audiences by storm. His work has been described as Baroque pop and Neo-Goth, filled with dramatic themes based on mysticism, the occult, and Latin American lore. Daniel de Jesús has nine studio recordings of his own music, and performs with orchestras and rock bands in the region and around the world.

Be Steadwell is a singer songwriter from Washington DC. A blend of soul, acapella and folk-Be calls her music QUEER POP. In her live performances, she utilizes looping, vocal layering and beat boxing to compose her songs on stage. Be’s original music features earnest lyricism, and Affirming LGBTQ content. Be has shared stages with fellow artist Activists Big Freedia, Nona Hendryx, Nikky Finney and Gina Yashere. In 2017 Be sang at The Women’s March on the National Mall behind Maxwell and Janelle Monae in Toshi Reagon’s Big Lovely Band. In may 2018 Be released her newest album “Queer Love Songs”. In her latest work – A Letter to My Ex, the musical, Be tells stories of love, loss and intimacy through a collage of music, movement and film — narrating one character’s journey through the year following a breakup.

US (given name Anthony Martinez-Briggs), is a member of the music making tribe ILL DOOTS as well as the Wilma’s HotHouse acting company, and frequent maker with Bearded Ladies Cabaret.
