Who is Bernardino Femminielli? According to his Bandcamp bio, the Montreal resident is "is an artist. He works in media including music, performance, poetry and film under the guise of a hyper-sexual, genderless provocateur. His work and character are a synthesis of mysticism, danger and pleasure; a detached crooner deep within a dystopian discotheque." He was also a live and in-studio member of Dirty Beaches. If you need a little mysticism, danger and pleasure in your life -- who doesn't? -- as well as '80s-ish minimal wave synths, proggy grooves and smoky French cooing, Femminielli may be your genderless provocateur. You can listen to his new single "Cafe Petite Chat," as well as his Plaisirs Américains EP from earlier this year, below.

Bernardino Femminielli is currently on tour with electronic music icons Silver Apples, with two stops in the NYC area this week: tonight (11/2) at Good Room with Forma (moved from Market Hotel) and Saturday (11/5) at WFMU Monty Hall in Jersey City with American Watercolor Movement. Tickets for both are on sale now.

Then in 2017, Bernardino will be opening for Marching Church, including the NYC stop at Sunnyvale on February 4. Tickets  are on sale now.

Femminielli is also playing the 2016 M for Montrreal as part of the BrooklynVegan showcase on November 18 at Casa Del Popolo with Cindy Lee (ex Women), Toronto post punks New Fries, and Montreal's Helena Deland.
