Midnight Opera is the glam rock band of four friends from Dallas, TX. Mixing ominous art pop with opulent set design and deranged alter egos, their live show makes you feel like you could go out and invent a new color, or wear a leotard to work.
Comprised of Paul Alonzo (bass), Paul Grass (drums), Nicole Marxen-Myers (keys, vocals) and Teddy Georgia Waggy (guitar, vocals), Midnight Opera materialized in 2015 as a means to intersect music, fashion and performance art. To do so, they take elements from carpentry to choreography to costume design, and their live shows have come to serve as a parallel universe for the members to don alternate identities, and face the terror of vulnerability with their audiences.
The band spent the past year touring the release of their debut ‘The Mesmerist’, peppering in sessions with Daytrotter and HearHere Presents, sharing stages with King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Adanowsky, and receiving coverage from the likes of BrooklynVegan and Tiny Mix Tapes, among others. Currently, they are in the studio at work on their second album. The record will be about creatures, preachers, and sexually harassing grim reapers.
