LPR Presents
(Le) Poisson Rouge is a multimedia art cabaret founded by musicians on the site of the historic Village Gate. Dedicated to the fusion of popular and art cultures in music, film, theater, dance, and fine art, the venue’s mission is to revive the symbiotic relationship between art and revelry; to establish a creative asylum for both artists and audiences.
LPR prides itself in offering the highest quality eclectic programming, impeccable acoustics, and bold design. The state-of-the art performance space, engineered by the legendary John Storyk/WSDG, offers full flexibility in multiple configurations: seated, standing, in-the-round, and numerous alternative arrangements. The adjoining gallery space — The Gallery at LPR — functions as an art gallery, secondary bar, and event space. A work of art itself, the physical facilities are the embodiment of the experimental philosophy that drives the venue.
LPR is a source you can trust for exposure to visionary work, people of character, and a consistently dynamic environment. We invite you to immerse yourself in a nightlife of true substance and vitality.
Wilsen
Wilsen
With her 3-piece band, New York based Wilsen blends contemporary folk songs with ethereal, electric arrangements to create a full and intricate sound tagged 'dream folk.' She released her debut LP Sirens on July 25th 2012. Available now at sirensofthedawn.com

"Sirens vibrates in a way that I associate only with Sufjan Stevens' 2004 gold-star Seven Swans: enigmatic and restrained. WILSEN manage to be so patient, every musical move so careful that it almost feels like you aught to not move while listening. There's a darkness equally with that fragility and the instrumentation is at the beck and call of the negative spaces in all the songs. It is space that need not be filled, but indeed is intoxicating for repeated listens." (Mila Matveeva - Listenbeforeyoubuy.net)
Alpenglow
Alpenglow
Alpenglow is a band intensely influenced by its surroundings. They made their 2014 EP, Chapel, while living in a ramshackle house in a Vermont mountain town, population 588, once home to Robert Frost. The album, which has a reverent and spacious sound, was produced by Jesse Lauter (The Low Anthem, Elvis Perkins, Langhorne Slim) and was recorded in a stone chapel down the road. The release of Chapel led Alpenglow to tours opening for Lucius, Timber Timbre, and their spiritual guru, Jim James of My Morning Jacket. After moving to Brooklyn, Alpenglow's music gained an urgency and intensity that wasn't there before. Practicing next to metal bands made Alpenglow play louder. Their focus shifted to beats, grooves, tones, and colors. They started using synthesizers and bought a drum machine. The result was a new sound inspired by the people, shows, styles, and art of the city. They took this new sound into the studio with musician and producer Sam Cohen (Danger Mouse, Apollo Sunshine) to record their first full-length record. They named it Callisto, inspired by Cohen's daughter, Jupiter, who was born while they were working on the album. The album will be released on Chizu Records on February 26th, 2016.
