Amber Martin in Janis: Undead
Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre
Vocalist, comedic monologist, and downtown NYC performing artist Amber Martin belts out her raw rocking tribute to acid blues icon Janis Joplin. Hailing from the same hometown as Joplin, Martin was shaped by the same refineries, bayous, churches, and bowling alleys of Port Arthur, Texas.
Combining her own personal stories with those of Joplin, Martin brings her unique voice to the legend’s already powerful songs. Backed by a full band and mesmerising light show from The Joshua Light Show, Janis: Undead is an uplifting psychedelic love fest that’s not to be missed.
I haven’t laughed like that in I don’t know when. Amber is the real deal, a f#$@ing scream, like I Love Lucy on acid beyond the pale! I think she is brilliant! Sandra Bernhard
