Midnight Opera (formerly Siamese) is the glam rock band of four theatrically inclined friends from Dallas, TX. Mixing ominous pop with opulent set design and deranged alter egos, their live show makes you feel like you could go out and invent a new color, or wear a leotard to work. Their debut record, “The Mesmerist” , was released in March, and the group has been touring the U.S. ever since.
