Tabard Theatre announces Flamy Grant, Story & Tune

A  Million Ways To Cry in the West Tour – Tuesday, Mar. 21

San Jose, CA February 22, 2023— Tabard Theatre announces that the San Pedro Square venue will be the final California stop on TikTok sensation drag queen Flamy Grant’s collaborative tour with swoony indie folk duo Story & Tune entitled A Million Ways to Cry in the West. The concert will also feature an opening set from local latin favorites IndiviDúo. Tickets for A Million Ways to Cry in the West are available for in-person and livestream attendees on Tuesday, March 11. Doors at 6pm, show starts at 7pm. Single tickets are $20 for General Admission and $30 for reserved Cabaret table seating. For those unable to enjoy the show live that night, the high-quality recording will be available as an on-demand purchase for one month following the show.

A sparkly band of religious outlaws is rounding up fellow west coast heathens for an earnest, emotional, enlightened evening of foot-stomping folk songs, bedazzled boots, and unyielding insistence that you belong, baby. TikTok sensation and singing/songwriting drag queen Flamy Grant joins swoony indie folk duo Story & Tune for a night of harmony-driven healing, featuring special guest dynamic latin pop duo IndiviDúo. Unlike any show you’ve ever seen, it’s drag meets The Civil Wars meets inner child work. Join us to get therapized, revitalized, and deputized at A Million Ways to Cry in the West.

Flamy Grant (link to EPK)  is a shame-slaying, hip-swaying, singing-songwriting drag queen with Appalachian roots who now calls San Diego home. She time traveled from a 90s Lilith Fair tour, bringing with her a roots-rock sound influenced by gospel and Americana. Her music shines a spotlight on the queer spiritual journey, telling stories of resilience and recovery from religious trauma. With a bold lip, a big lash, and a blistering voice, Flamy is here to rewrite the rules when it comes to religious music, demanding a reckoning for an industry that has for too long silenced and shut out its LGBTQ+ artists and fans. Her debut album “Bible Belt Baby” was released this past October.

Story & Tune (link to EPK)  is Aussie singer-songwriter Ben Grace and Californian poet Karyn Thurston, who met for the first time weeks after they first said I love you, a blush-worthy whirlwind love story that landed them in a creative partnership writing a torrent of original songs. Driven by folk-americana’s long history of lyrical storytelling, the harmony-driven duo’s songs are a unique blend of heart, ache, and laughter, all grounded in the unwavering belief that belonging is an essential human right.  Look for a blend of Woody Guthrie’s commitment to a better world with the rise and fall drama of a ballad by The Civil Wars. They’re the story you tell about an evening in Over the Rhine’s barn where too much whiskey leads to a flirty, irreverent guest appearance by Johnny & June.  Whether they are sharing unforgettable modern folk originals about ghosts, good boundaries, and hard goodbyes, or leading a bar sing-along of your favorite cover tunes, you won’t leave a Story & Tune show without feeling a little seen, a little celebrated, and a little more hopeful than you did before you came. Their first full-length album will release the week of the tour.

The dynamic Latin pop duo “IndiviDúo” was formed in Buenos Aires in 2010 when Tiffany Joy (Californian Singer / Songwriter) met Maqui Reyes (Colombian Singer / Musician / Composer) and they decided to set their solo careers aside to join musical forces. Over the past 8 years they have quickly grown to be one of the most promising, up and coming musical duos in the Latin music scene. Their show mixes original repertoire with unique versions of some of the most celebrated Latin music hits.

“The unique and international story of this duo transforms their music into something special, cosmopolitan as eclectic and joyful as the two themselves. “

Tabard Theatre (formerly Theatre on San Pedro Square) — San Jose’s “Hidden Gem” venue for the performing arts—  is located in the heart of historic San Pedro Square in downtown San Jose amid a bustling restaurant district.  This intimate and unique venue brings a touch of Manhattan to the South Bay with its rustic yet edgy feel. Old brick walls, plush leather seats, antique wood plank floors, sweeping red velvet drapes and a 35-foot mahogany bar create a casual cabaret atmosphere. The three-quarter round cabaret stage— described by artists as “a room that feels big and small at the same time” — is the perfect setting for live music and theatre.
