A Particularly Vicious Rumor 

Friday, August 4, at the Pistol Social Club.

Though at times subdued, the combination of A Particularly Vicious Rumor's Miss O on piano and Kid Twist on drums is anything but minimal. Miss O's voice hints at Regina Spektor or Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls, but it also incorporates the dark jazz influences of the band's 9th Ward New Orleans neighborhood. With help from Kid Twist's technical prowess, the duo maintains a carnival atmosphere while touching on death, drowning, falling and other similarly gloomy subjects. Considering that the Rumor continued to play gigs even as its home sat helplessly underwater last year, it's safe to assume this band will stay afloat a good long while.
