Teacup Gorilla

Featured Projects


A queer adaptation of the classic novel, with music…


Teacup Gorilla’s amiable creative approach, unorthodox roots and sense of community have resulted in a sound that is difficult to pin down: part instrumental rock, part glam, part psychedelic, part jazz-inflected. And it sounds like nothing much else in this highly imitative era.

Expect performances that blend mediums, styles and disciplines.

— Luke Leavitt, The Westword

One of the most ambitious projects that has come across our desk recently.
