    "A strange, comforting, and magical show that left me tremendously moved and deliriously hopeful." — DC Metro Theatre Arts
    Following an acclaimed and sold-out run this past winter in bathtubs of actual residences in every borough of NYC, Broken Bone Bathtub returns for an ongoing run at The Red Room. Broken Bone Bathtub is an immersive theatre project conceived, performed, and directed by Siobhan O'Loughlin - in an actual bathtub.
    After a serious bike accident, a young woman musters up the courage to ask for help, and shares her story, exploring themes of trauma, suffering, human generosity and connection. The audience takes on the role of Siobhan’s close friends; not only listening but sharing in their experiences, and assisting the cast-clad artist in the actual ritual of taking a bath.
    Doors open at 7pm, and audience members are encouraged to come early to enjoy the beautiful space and a drink!

    @kidbowery kicks off his new live-music series at The Red Room with Red Door Sessions #1: Femme//Fronted, a night celebrating NYC’s indie rock gynarchy and supporting Planned Parenthood of Northeast Pennsylvania! Lineup features lo-fi punk blues devastator, Breanna Barbara, chanteuse provocateur, Anya Marina (in a rare local performance!), and darling hotel insomniac, PONY.
    Red Door Sessions is a live-music series spotlighting newer bands and artists in a venue that's as intimate as it is unlikely. Every Red Door Sessions show is a benefit. Every benefit supports the resistance. Got a righteous cause? Tell us about it! Does your band not suck? Tell us about that, too. Lineups unapologetically reflect the taste of musician/series producer @kidbowery , a fan of sonic idiosyncrasy, independent artists and the occasional split infinitive. Check out www.reddoorsessions.com for more info about the series and to see exclusive performances by featured bands and artists.
    Breanna Barbara . After making a name for herself playing house shows in St. Augustine, Florida, Breanna Barbara relocated to New York City and caught a lethal dose of cool from one too many wild nights at one too many loft parties. Like her first album, Mirage Dreams, Barbara’s live show blends influences from every place she’s ever called home. Southern blues and psychedelia tend to rise to the top, but garage is never far away. Nor is her penchant for fucking shit up when the occasion suits her. “It wasn’t until I met dream producer Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes) that [these songs] were able to come alive in the way I had imagined them,” she says. Inspired by everything from howling at the moon to heat strokes in New York City summers to the paradigm shift after a loved one passes away, Barbara’s performances are a culmination of her heart and soul and a whole lotta sweat. (excerpted from consequencesofsound.net)
    Anya Marina. Best known for "Satellite Heart" from the platinum selling soundtrack to Twilight, New Moon, and her provocative cover of T.I.'s "Whatever You Like," Anya Marina mixes “Liz Phair sex appeal with a dash of Carl Jung." (Rolling Stone) By turns wise and witty, her songs sling rapier-sharp insights into human relationships and begrudging nods to uncertainty. Marina released her fourth LP, Paper Plane, last year on her own Good Rope Records (through Tone Tree). Recorded in Portland, Oregon, and Brooklyn, Paper Plane was produced with help from Dave Depper (Death Cab for Cutie), Eric Hutchinson, Leo Sidran and Gary Philips. Deeply felt yet approachable, it marked Marina’s first independent release since her 2005 debut, Miss Halfway. Her next album drops later in May and she’ll be touring behind it. Catch her before she hits the road!
    PONY. The daughter of a casino boss, PONY grew up on the road and in the company of assorted happy degenerates. By the time her family reached Las Vegas she was in her teens and familiar with the characters that inhabit the world of action. Bullshit high-rollers and hot lady cheats. Scores of addicts chasing their elusive nut-- all were fodder for early digs into art and music. But it was the winners—the consistent ones that bet huge and gave her father fits—who captured her imagination. Winners risk big for ideas they think are true. Their gift, she believed, is knowing when to stop thinking and give it up to instinct. A decade later PONY was living on a houseboat moored off Hoboken. Burnt out on the modeling scene and tired of taking orders from handsy "professionals," she started toying with the melodies she grew up on: her father’s Beatles; other discoveries like Georges Delrue and John Frusciante. The writing lead to gigs and the gigs to more writing, and the voice that had sometimes failed her in plain conversation started gaining strength. When PONY’s first album debuts later this year it’ll serve as proof that trusting your instincts is a risk worth taking.
    Fiona Silver is a young heart with an old soul. Her smoky voice and smoldering stage presence have already lead her to special appearances and accolades from numerous outlets including NPR’s All Things Considered, Ukulele Magazine, Go! Magazine who nominated her for Best Musical Performer, and Curve Magazine who had her high on their list of Most Desirable Women.Silver combines a wide range of influences from Courtney Love to Billie Holiday, creating a sound that is edgy yet sophisticated, sultry and soulful. She has shared the stage with a diverse array of bands including Shakey Graves, Mike Doughty, Breedlove, and Clairy Browne & the Bangin' Rackettes.
