Little Hexes
:: little hexes :: art pop & hexology from Portland, Oregon ::

:: a rock band of mischievous odes & mash ups ::

Little hexes’ lyrical repertoire includes odes to a pissed-off Cleopatra, Marie Curie’s unfortunate love affair with Radium, Phineas Gage’s 1848 metamorphosis from all-around nice guy to womanizing lout via a metal spike through the head, and an every-boy’s-(or-girl’s)-fantasy tribute to the Swiss Miss Girl. The band also delivers idiosyncratic mash ups that play mischief with just about every rock genre.
Jet Black Pearl - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Jet Black Pearl
Jet Black Pearl, World Wild Accordion Diva.
This fabulous accordion diva from the port of Amsterdam has performed on more than a thousand stages all over Europe and the USA West Coast while singing, rapping and beat boxing about slugs in love, criminal gurus and hallucinating butterflies.

Could Nina Hagen and Tom Waits have a secret daughter, born in Caravan Palace, with Björk as a babysitter?

It all started about 25 years ago, when, in the back of a thrift store in Prague, Jetty Swart stumbled upon a fancy accordion. She smuggled it back home, stared at it for a couple of weeks and then realized that now she had to learn how to play it, write songs… and sing them.

She moved far away from her skeptical Dutch friends and family, and started playing in the streets of New York, whenever she wasn't busy doing her internship at a graphic design studio. After a couple of months of living a double life, weather and visa started freezing, and she decided to fly to the south of France. There she continued busking in the streets and slowly learned to speak, write and sing her new songs in French.

The French actually liked her silly songs and her strange accent, they put her on big stages in theaters and festivals, played the music of her band 'Yeti' on the radio and gave her several songwriting awards.

After 16 years of savoring moldy cheese and obscure wine in France, she met 'The Amazing Bubble Man' and moved with him to Portland, Oregon. She started singing in English, but kept her strange accent.

She still travels through Europe at least twice a year, always accompanied by her faithful fancy accordion.

A formidable force of music, and truly has to be seen to be believed (Three Weeks, Edinburgh Fringe Festival).
The most eccentric and equally the most talented woman you will see in Edinburgh this month (Broadway Baby, Edinburgh Fringe Festival)
