Erin Markey’s A Ride on the Irish Cream

January 11

Joe's Pub


Doors at 6PM
Show at 7PM

A Ride On The Irish Cream is a darkly psychedelic story with songs set in a fantastical Michigan backyard on a cold blue river. In this work-in-progress concert presentation, an original score and live band become the playing space for the thrills and terrors of a relationship between Reagan (Erin Markey), a vainglorious self-made princess, and Irish Cream (Becca Blackwell), her family's pontoon boat/horse.They are in love, but when their relationship is tested by waterfalls, masculinity, dust ruffles, sex for money, severe T-storms, moms and a fatally jealous best friend, the only way to stay together is to remember all the parts of themselves their bodies tried to forget.
