MATHER LOUTH & FUJI MINX @ The Unknown Theater

Away from the glitz & glamour of Hollywood and in the shadows of paparazzi flashbulbs, The Unknown Theater was host to a surreal experience that included fire dancers, sultry burlesque dancing from Violet Valentine and the drug-inducing sounds of Mather Louth and Fuji Minx.

Spoken word, art, music and theater are a few of the many things you can expect from any given night at The Unknown Theater. This night featured the mystical isolationist sounds of Mather Louth & Radio Noir. Framed by a bare stage and burlesque red as a lighted backdrop, Mather Louth's jazz influenced songs set the dark and mysterious mood that enveloped the late evening.

Returning to their roots, Fuji Minx opened the night with Valenti and Fry playing an acoustic set. Currently working on new material, Fuji Minx's stripped-down version of their songs translates beautifully in an intimate environment.
