Carol Lipnik: Goddess of Imperfection

  • Pangea 178 2nd Ave New York, NY (map)


”In a word, phenomenal.”
- Stephen Holden, The New York Times

"The soulful spirit of Laura Nyro meets the surrealist warble of Yma Sumac in this alt-cabaret star whose phenomenal four-octave range conveys everything from dark and delusional Alice in Wonderland mushroom fantasies to face-in-the-sidewalk security-state concerns... a siren song to lost cosmopolitans everywhere. Dark, funny, and cosmically aligned."
- Richard Gehr, The Village Voice

Carol Lipnik is a wonderful amalgam of Joni Mitchell, Lotte Lenya, Theda Bara, Yma Sumac and Stevie Nicks but totally original."  
- Michael Musto, Out Magazine

Carol Lipnik - the spellbinding, tragi-comic singer and songwriter acclaimed for her hauntingly beautiful multi-octave voice - called an "ethereal vocal phenomenon" by The New York Times - extends her unprecedented two year long Sunday Night Residency at Pangea beginning Sunday, January 15th, 2017.

Her new show "Goddess of Imperfection" is a dreamlike evening paying tribute to the broken, uncertain state of the world with a set of new original songs and specially-selected covers that reach above the chaos and reflect back on our tangled, beast-ridden planet. 

Last spring Lipnik completed a three week engagement at Joe's Pub at the Public, for which she was hailed as a "One of New York's most inventive singers and performance artists" by The Village Voice. Lipnik, who blends folk music, operatic flourish and art song with the classic nightclub tradition, is joined music director Matt Kanelos on piano, backing vocals and found sounds. Her Sunday Night Pangea Residency is produced by TWEED TheaterWorks (Lypsinka) and DAX MGMT (Weimar New York, Joey Arias).
