Stephanie Nilles | Charlie-O's World Famous | Clubs | Seven Days | Vermont's Independent Voice


Stephanie Nilles

When: Wed., April 19, 9 p.m. 2017

A quick glance at the cover of Stephanie Nilles’ album Uncle Stephanie’s Murder Ballads *for Kids! should give you a pretty good idea of what she’s all about. Setting aside the incendiary title, the album cover shows the lower half of what looks an awful lot like a beloved feathered “Sesame Street” character, whose shadow reveals that the large avian is dangling from a noose. Nilles’ voice feverishly quivers as she frolics through vaudeville, ragtime and traditional jazz piano tunes — which she frequently tweaks with punk-rock energy, graphic imagery, unexpected humor and utter darkness. Catch Stephanie Nilles on Tuesday, April 18, at the Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington, and on Wednesday, April 19, Charlie-O’s World Famous in Montpelier.
