About the Event

Join us for dinner and show with special performance by Sgt. Splendor! Grab a drink, order dinner from your favorite spot, and settle in for a show you won't forget.

Before joining forces, the duo behind Sgt. Splendor were already formidable solo artists. Kate Vargas was chalking up acclaim at outlets like NPR, HuffPost and Vice (including praise from the “Dean of American Rock Critics” Robert Christgau). Eric McFadden was amassing an impressive resume including stints on guitar with George Clinton & the P-Funk All Stars, Anders Osbourne, Fishbone’s Angelo Moore, and Eric Burdon & The Animals, plus a slew of solo albums, and session work with everyone from Jackson Browne to The Clash’s Joe Strummer. 

Sgt Splendor’s 2nd release, “Death of the Hoochie Koo” dropped May 19th on Buena Vista West Records. “Tom Waits’ music has always been a point of connection for me & Kate. While our musical approaches differ, they’re also kindred and share a lot of common elements. Their Southwestern upbringing comes through—that sort of mysterioso desert thing—but also a carnivalesque Waits-ian vibe. The new record is a bit more cohesive but still eclectic. Kind of an Alt-Funk, Desert Roots, Dirty Blues, Rock thing. "Our styles have always been complementary.” Vargas concurs: “Sgt. Splendor really feels like a combination of both of us—equally.”
