2023 Oregon Fringe Festival - Houndsville, Amanda Berlind (Honorarium Recipient)

Content Warning: Themes of sex, alcohol, and adult language.

Houndsville is a quasi-noir psychedelic fantasy musical detailing the trials and tribulations of washed up alcoholic dog detective, Klauss, and his will-they-won't-they sweetheart, Maus, as the pair traverse the blackened sprawl of the once great city of dogs. Featuring an experimental three-piece rock band adorned in painted paper mâché costumes and wheeling themselves in on a giant car shaped like a raccoon, it is sure to be a memorable evening. Come one, come all, to watch in disbelief as Klauss and Maus fight to save the city from a wicked case of Huckleberry Fever before it turns snouts blue across the land!

Amanda has been featured on WNYC's New Sounds and has had the opportunity to work with artists such as Tune-Yards, Tim Story, the Bang on a Can All-Stars, and Michael Gordon. Amanda holds a Bachelor of Music in Music Theory & Composition from New York University, where she graduated with honors.
