    Price Range: Unknown
    Environment:†Curiosity is a Chicago-based female-fronted solo project which began in 1995, performing Gothic Lolita Industrial Jazz music. The act seamlessly combines gothic Victorian themes, frilly dresses and Japanese influences with a¬†dark electronic cabaret style¬†to create a beautifully designed nightmare, characterized by electronic beats and powerful vocals. Curiosity herself is a multi-instrumentalist, writing and playing all the music on her songs. A demo of the track "Vitamin Sugar" was featured on a CDNow Unheard? contest compilation in 1997. Her first album, "The Forced Magician," was released in 2004 and is available on CDBaby and iTunes. Curiosity dresses in the poofy, lace-covered Japanese Gothic Lolita style of fashion. She speaks fluent Japanese, with some of her songs containing Japanese lyrics intertwined with English. The live shows are a flurry of synthesized beats, explosive vocals, and Mini Super Dollfies. Author Warren Ellis described Curi thusly: "She has a big, smoky, whisky-sharp voice: like Tom Waits if he were an angry 24-year-old woman preoccupied with Doom and Hate. Her best songs, like 'Exist' and 'Play With Us,' are just apocalyptic, all crunch and yell and bad love and wrong romance."
