Adelyn Strei w. Mary Traxler, Bathtub Cig

Wednesday May 15 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Adelyn Strei is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer based in NYC with roots in the Midwest. Her compositions and improvisations demonstrate a genre-fluid, melodically intuitive and textural approach which she has honed in collaborative contexts across Eau Claire, Minneapolis and Brooklyn and as a touring artist.


Mary Traxler is a minnesota-born multimedia artist and musician. As a solo artist, they use live and pre-recorded rhythmic loops as a backdrop for lyrical explorations of desire, loss, and liberation. Mary is inspired by early femme folk music, proto punk sounds of the late 70s, as well as contemporary jazz and R&B. Mary’s work frequently includes introspection, improvisation, and occasional solipsism.

Bathtub cig is the intimate depression pop project of Hilary James.  Born in a Minneapolis bedroom the spring of 2017, it is an honest attempt at coping with her long struggle with mental health.  She is joined by Dave Power on drums, Skyler Nowinski on bass, and Hannah Heble on synth, flute and harmony.

Their 2018 debut EP “Old Light” draws comparisons to a synth-pop version of Frankie Cosmo with raw lyrics.  2021 Ep “bed” is both a dream-like and hazy musing on quarantine as well as a heartbreaking attempt to cope with grief.  In a departure from James’ first full band EP “Old Light”, this new release is a stripped down solo voyage.  Hilary is joined by Addie Strei (Adelyn Rose) on clarinet, flute, and bass to create beautiful textures to balance out the loneliness of the electric guitar.  Their 2022 debut full length “Night Blindness” has been described as a clever and dark Gen Z Ode, putting our hardest thoughts into music.

New single “Red Pine” will be out on February 2, 2024.
