“Poses” Side 1: From “Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk” to “Tower of Learning”
Take a journey through over 20 years of Rufus Wainwright’s music from the comfort of your living room in “A Rufus-Retro-Wainwright-Spective” an 18-show series of live-stream concerts from Rufus’s home in Laurel Canyon as he performs his entire studio discography in chronological order, starting with his 1998 self-titled debut.
Tickets are on-sale now and special multi-show bundles are available as well. All streams will be archived for 1 month after the show.
Second albums are the hardest to make and I feel I did a pretty good job on this one. I was a pretty messed up young adult. Who has cigarettes with chocolate milk? There are a lot of musical influences in these songs from Rembetika (Greek folk music) on “Greek Song” to Oum Kalsoum on Poses and some people got me and Thom Yorke confused when they heard “Shadows”. I think there is a lot of Bjork influence in there as well. This show will end with “The Tower of Learning” which is a place I feel where our entire political cast should be spending some more time.
