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 psychadelic rock band from Brooklyn, NY. They are currently recording their 2nd LP with Hunter Davidson (Porches, Frankie Cosmos, Sheer Mag). They expect to be done sometime in 2017. They think it's the best thing they've made yet, and they feel the most positive about being a band they've ever felt. They also think their live show is the most interesting it's ever been. Their last album was produced by Sam Cohen (Danger Mouse, Yellow Birds). Jeff Tweedy and Jim James have both called Alpenglow's music "Good Stuff." Alpenglow has been a band of best friends since 2011.
