Antigone Rising,the all female country rock band, will be performing in Washington,DC on Tuesday, June 12 at Iota Club & Cafe. The band most recently returned from Israel and The West Bank as Arts Envoys,a cultural initiative sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. During the trip, Antigone Rising performed in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Ramallah and other regional cities, leading community outreach workshops and making music with Israeli and Palestinian musicians. A truly inspiring trip, Antigone Rising demonstrated that all cultures appreciate and connect to the language of music.
Antigone Rising exploded into the spotlight in 2005 becoming the first band on Starbuck's Hear Music (Lava Records) with their best selling debut LP. A lineup change brought Nini Camps to the band, whose voice blends perfectly with the signature style soaring three part harmonies of founding sisters Kristen Henderson (bass /vocals), Cathy Henderson (lead guitar /vocals) and Dena Tauriello (drums), that Antigone Rising has become known and loved for. The band's latest CD, "23 Red" continues to turn heads as their themes abound with songs that speak to the full range of emotions and life. The band has opened for such acts as The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, Rob Thomas and The Bangles, and are favorites in festivals around the country.
Chareston, SC based band, A Fragile Tomorrow, opens the show. Fans have time and again compared their music to the likes of Teenage Fanclub, The Smithereens, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Big Star, The Jayhawks, The Lemonheads, The Posies, and more. Their unique original material has been noticed by many industry legends over the years, including Amy Ray of Indigo Girls and Vicki Peterson of The Bangles. With 3 studio albums, one acoustic EP, and a live album under their belts, lots of grassroots touring, and a consistently solid stage show, A Fragile Tomorrow is a band that has made a permanent spot for themselves in the music industry.
