Join us Thursday, July 25, at 6 pm, for a performance by Dust Bowl Faeries, who return to the Tang with their accordion-driven dark cabaret music after their debut Upbeat on the Roof performance in 2016.

Celebrating their tenth year in 2024, Dust Bowl Faeries perform a faerie-tale medley of dark cabaret and gothic polka music, infused with a dose of witchcraft and a dusting of woodland magic. The accordion-driven freak-folk ensemble hails from the New York Hudson Valley and draws inspiration from circus music, murder ballads, and Eastern European folk songs. Singing saw, piano accordion, lap steel, electric bass, percussion, and acoustic guitar combine to create the Dust Bowl Faeries’ otherworldly sound.


For its 23rd season, the Upbeat on the Roof summer series highlights regional musical talent every Thursday, July 11 through August 15, at 6 pm.

Performances take place on the lawn outside the Tang and are free and open to the public. Visitors are invited to bring picnic blankets, camping chairs, and their own food and drink to make it a night!
