Genre Introduction: Punk Cabaret

Punk Cabaret

Punk Cabaret is the name given to the style of a duo called The Dresden Dolls. Punk cabaret mixes punk tendencies and energy with the style of cabaret. The Dresden Dolls formed in the early 2000’s so this is a relatively new genre. It has a devoted following though will no doubt spawn new artists in the coming years and decades. So where does the cabaret fit in? Lead singer and pianist Amanda Palmer’s style of playing and music are both derived from cabaret. Drummer Brian Viglione often adds a cabaret flare. They are going on tour soon so you should try to catch them. Overall it is a young and exciting genre that will grow in the coming years. Here are some Youtube videos:

Coin-Operated Boy (from Dresden Dolls)


Backstabber (from Yes, Virginia)


Shores Of California (from Yes, Virginia


Enjoy. Leave comments and thoughts.

I watched a concert DVD of theirs, and while the music wasn't really my thing, the drummer blew me away.

Just giving my two cents, that the Dresden Dolls are really amazing. Amanda's voice and piano playing along with Brain's amazing drumming is just too good a combo. And I never seen the video for the new single before so I was introduced to something

They covered Rufus Wainwright's "Oh What a World" and it was pretty fantabulous.

Dresden Dolls are great; I love their theatrical vibe and Amanda's deep seedy voice is They're fantastic live, as well, great chemistry between the two.
