Nath Ann Carrera returns to Joe’s Pub on December 10 for a night of narrative songs leading into the winter solstice. Singer-guitarist Carrera delves into queer-feminist themes through gothic Americana described as “cultish non-essential lesbian-separatist murder ballads,” “gender-variant black masses” and more. Recently, Carrera enjoyed sold out performances of “I Don’t Want to Throw Rice, I Want to Throw Rocks: The Early Southern Gothicism of Dolly Parton,” a deep dive into the country superstar’s late 1960s and early ’70s work.
Carrera’s solo show will include a guest performance from singer Amber Martin. The two collaborate with each other as Witch Camp, who pepper stunning folk styles with ’70s occult horror vibes. They will unveil a new, original song, “Blessed Be the Sterile Man.”

When Trish Nelson’s The Secret Society of the Sisterhood, debuted at a Los Angeles cemetery in 2018, the candlelit, full moon storytelling event generated instant buzz for both its setting and its eclectic lineup of guests. The bi-coastal event will make its only New York appearance of 2019 at Joe’s Pub on the eve of the full moon.
Joined under the theme “What I’ve Gained From Loss,” this gathering of the Secret Society of the Sisterhood will feature musician JD Samson (Le Tigre, Men), comedian and writer Desiree Burch (Flinch), author and Food and Wine editor Kat Kinsman, along with Wyatt Cenac (Wyatt Cenac’s Problem Areas) and Nelson. Suzzy Roche and Lucy Wainwright Roche are the musical guests and Cristina Pitter and Lovewin will be the featured visual artists for the evening.
