CHANDRA Live at Third Man Records Cass Corridor
February 1, 2019
djs AUT & JAKE
Tickets: $12 advance / $15 day of show
Born in the NYC underground art scene of the early 1980s, Chandra Oppenheim was a child star like no other. Beginning at age 10, she wrote and recorded the songs from her uniquely intoxicating Transportation
EPs while backed up by a band featuring members of famed mutant disco groups The Dance and Model Citizens. With her hypnotic, chanted vocals propelled by infectiously off-kilter grooves, Chandra’s songs explore the singular fascinations of a post-punk pre-teen in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen. In the ensuing decades, the Transportation EPs have gone on to be regarded as a rediscovered cult classic, with her song “Subways” sampled by internationally acclaimed Australian crate-diggers The Avalanches on their 2016 comeback album, Wildflower. The EPs have now received a deluxe 2LP reissue from Telephone Explosion and Rain Boots Records, while Chandra has returned with a new Toronto-based band featuring members of Bile Sister, Tough Age, New Chance, and Blonde Elvis. Celebrating and reinterpreting the music written in her childhood, she continues her transportation through time.
