Picture a PG-13-rated Dresden Dolls: Both members of Cleveland cabaret-rock duo Nicholas Megalis claim to be 17, but we don't know any adolescents who can sing so convincingly about cigarettes and wine. Chelsea Simmons keeps the beat while Nicholas Megalis sings, plays guitar, and emotes behind a Wurlitzer keyboard. The group's newly revamped, vaudeville-style stage show features a backdrop of carnations and curtains that's inspired by some of Megalis's favorite picture books from his (not-so-distant) youth. He won't confirm or deny whether he occasionally breathes fire on stage, but the shows are always something to watch.
