Starnes&Shah play Arlene on 12.15

Starnes&Shah are two ladies who hail from diverse backgrounds but come together to create dual harmonies and guitar and keyboard-driven alt-pop. Guitarist Dania Abu-Shaheen, originally from Lebanon and keyboardist Zilpha Starnes, who was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, settled in New York, releasing their third full-length record, “Red Brick Tide” since their formation in 2005. The duo - who can boast slmody 10k Facebook likes - recently released a video for album half-way point, “Lucinda,”  which serves as a soundtrack to a variety of individuals enduring suburban life. The two front-women will be performing their last show of 2012 on Saturday, December 15 at Arlene’s Grocery but will be venturing on in the new year with new material and shows to follow.  –Meijin Bruttomesso
