Emilie Autumn Showcases Journey of Wayward Victorian Girl in Los Angeles
Emilie Autumn recently wowed Los Angeles fans at Rob Zombie‘s Great American Nightmare and she took her stage theatrics back to Tinsel Town Monday night (Dec. 9) at the Troubadour. The world-class violinist’s stage show has evolved into a full-on theatrical production, based around the adventures of a wayward Victorian girl and her cohorts as they deal with life as inmates in an asylum.
The show is equal parts rock, pop, musical and burlesque all rolled up into one very entertaining and titillating production. Using a cage as the major prop piece, Autumn and her female singers tussle, climb and slink around and above the bars. They also flirt, dance and above all belt with some major pipes throughout their performance.
Highlights included the powerful opening song and recent single ‘Fight Like a Girl,’ the sinister track ‘Time for Tea’ and ‘Take the Pill’ from the opening set, which also featured a fan dance and a seductive audience member corruption ceremony performed by one of Autumn’s sidekicks.
After an intermission, Autumn returned with the peppy ‘Girls Girls Girls,’ the anthemic ‘We Want Them Young’ and the ominously dark ‘Scavenger,’ before finishing out the evening with the building catchiness of ‘One Foot in Front of the Other.’ Check out our photo gallery from Emilie Autumn’s Los Angeles performance at the Troubadour below.
