Film maker David Sloma has invited La Veronique to be interviewed for his forthcoming documentary, "Goth:insideOUT". His blog entry on the subject is as follows:
Veronique Chevalier AKA The “Weird Val” of Cabaret has graciously agreed to be interviewed for the film GOTH:insideOUT!
She is very talented and unique in what she does, with her cabaret performances and also music (both on her own and with projects such as Polka Haunt Us). I’ve never seen or heard anything like it – and I like it!
Her work on “Polka Haunt Us: A Spook-tacular Compilation” was an official selection on the 51st Annual Grammy ballot, and continues to gain more popularity and airplay every Halloween. She writes and performs original cabaret songs, and also covers of rock songs as Edith Piaf might have done them. In addition, “Weird Val” writes parodies of well-known songs, in the same spirit of “Weird Al” Yankovic.
From her bio: “Being gonged off the premiere season of America’s Got Talent was irrefutable proof her gifts are wasted on the masses.”
We’ll get her take on what she does, sample some of her live performances, and hear about her observations on Goth and its evolutions.
Her Website is http://weirdval.com and also check out http://polkahaunt.us
I’m very happy to have her aboard!
