Psirens performs at Best Video Performance Space on Friday, Aug. 23. The show starts at 8 PM and the cover is a sliding scale of $5-10 (pay what you can in that range).
P S I R E N S formed serendipitously in 2009 when Paris Mancini played some tunes with strangers all night in a performance space she was renting in north Brooklyn. The next day, she recorded what she could remember from the dreamy melodies conjured the previous eve and BOOM! P S I R E N S was born! The project caught fire and Paris was asked to play a small tour in Berlin, which she happily did. Next a tour across the US, and later, Latin America. P S I R E N S is sometimes a 3 piece, a one-woman power choir, a wall of noise in a sailor bar in Staten Island, leading a symphony recording in Boise Idaho, sneaking a secret show in the mirror room deep underground in Manhattan, and/or recording amongst millions in Mexico City.
