Emilie Autumn

Los Angeles native Emilie Autumn was a classically trained violinist at the age of four, but she abandoned classical music for Victorian cabaret-inspired goth-rock that mixed classical, rock, and electronic. In 2006, Autumn released Opheliac, exploring manic depression and self-mutilation against the backdrop of a mental institution. It was informed by her own institutional experiences, which she related in her 2010 memoir The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls. “Anybody who’s ever thought about killing themselves, anybody who’s cut themselves, licked the blood, and liked the taste, I’m your girl,” she says. Ever theatrical, Autumn is accompanied onstage by her corseted backing band, the Bloody Crumpets, and often a range of performers from burlesque to men on stilts. The white pancake makeup and colorful costumes are designed to counterbalance the harrowing subject matter. “This is the darkest stuff you can manifest,” she says. “To balance that out, I need to look like a fucking cupcake.” 8 p.m. Tickets: $18, $15 in advance. -- Chris Parker
