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 Arists
The Bandits‘ music is both a raucous celebration and a call to arms. Since 2014 the Bandits have been channeling anti-capitalist, feminist punk rage and joy. The Bandits are a theatrical punk band whose tunes herald the coming ecofeminist revolution. Born from the 2014 Riot Grrl fantasia We Are Bandits by Applied Mechanics, the Bandits have since made such radical mischief as opening for Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova, and playing Philly Democratic Socialists’ Rock Against Fascism.
Emyne is a singer-songwriter and performer from West Philadelphia. She has performed at The Apollo Theatre and many venues around Philadelphia, including World Live Cafe and The Clef Club. This multi-talented young lady also does work around the city as an event designer, workshop designer and facilitator and project manager. Working with organizations such as The Village of Arts & Humanities, Youth H.E.A.L.E.R.S and Girls Rock Philly! Always excited to connect and make change through music, she is a resilient young woman with undeniable talent, passion and charm. Always asking herself “What’s Next Emyne?”.
Jess Conda is a Philadelphia based performance artist. “Too musical theater for rock&roll and too rock&roll for musical theater,” she works regularly as an emcee in Philly’s cabaret scene, most notably as Muff Johnson, rock chanteuse and co-host with The Peek A Boo Revue, the city’s longest running burlesque troupe. Jess was recently seen in Do you Want A Cookie with the Bearded Ladies and in Pig Iron Theatre Company’s A HARD TIME, an alt-cabaret love letter to the Patriarchy devised with Jenn Kidwell and Mel Krodman. 2013 Philadelphia Magazine’s “Best Star Power.” Her mother says she’ll never get a husband with a mouth like that.
