"Clearly the work of a terrorist organization, eXtraOrdinary
Rendition promotes dangerous anti-American notions such as
multiculturalism, internationalism, and exuberant dancing." -Utne Reader

JANUARY 2008- After wowing critics with their acclaimed album
eXtraOrdinary Rendition, and winning over audiences at high profile
shows including New York's Central Park SummerStage, the Montreal
Jazzfest and San Francisco's Outside Lands Festival, Rupa & the April
Fishes are coming to Los Angeles's El Rey Theater on January 29th for
a night of border crossing, multi-cultural, cabaret madness with the
acclaimed Yard Dogs Road Show and Pimps of Joytime.

Yard Dogs Road Show were recently featured in the hit music video
for Rupa & the April Fishes song "Une americaine a Paris" that was
featured on the home page of YouTube. Garnering over a quarter
million views,"Une americaine a Paris" brings together stars
of the Bay Area alternative music scene including Boots Riley
of the highly praised Bay Area underground hip-hop duo The Coup.

Rupa & the April Fishes just emerged from a productive week at
famed Prairie Sun Recording Studio recording the follow up to
their highly praised debut album. Oz Fritz, whose credits
include Tom Waits and Paris Combo, engineered the sessions.
A film crew captured the creative process for an upcoming
documentary on the band. The album is slated for release on
the Cumbancha label in the fall of this year.

Rupa & the April Fishes boundary-smashing sold-out performances
have earned them international renown for the circus-like
atmosphere that channels a modern-day Moulin Rouge. Their
informal, acoustic lineup includes Rupa on guitar and vocals
backed by upright bass, cello,accordion or bandoneon,
percussion and trumpet. For a full list of tour dates and
