Straight off the heels of a sold-out run of her new musical A Ride On The Irish Cream, Erin Markey returns to Joe’s Pub with a night of totally new guffaw-worthy stories of adolescent terror and power ballads---original and covered. Known as a “hilarious combination of jaded cheerleader and hard-charging, wide-eyed rock god,” (Time Out NY) she creates an at once riotous and unexpectedly moving performance about figuring out who you might be. Philadelphia-based musician and frequent collaborator Emily Bate will join!
“In a fevered glance, she moves between seduction and terror, and with the rise of an owlish eyelid, she pushes gentle vulnerability into cartoonish ridiculousness.”
-Jason Zinoman, New York Times
"Erin Markey has laser-beam eyes, a hair-raising singing voice, and an intense, almost predatory sexuality. Markey's uncanny self-possession goes hand in hand with perverse, non-sequitur humor that keeps her audience laughing, if unsettled."
-The New Yorker
