Screamin' Cyn Cyn & The Pons
Screamin' Cyn Cyn & The Pons
We are Screamin' Cyn Cyn & The Pons.

We are a band from Madison WI that makes theatrical punk cabaret music. Our live shows are frenetic, fun, confrontational, and generally soaked in beer, sweat and glitter. We try our very best to delight our crowds, but happily settle for their bewilderment.

Since the departure of our singer and keyboardist to New York City, the logistics of writing and releasing new music have become somewhat prohibitive. Thus, our recently-recorded EP "GIRLS ARE OK" will most likely be our final release.
Venus in Furs
Venus in Furs
Venus in Furs was established in 2010 with the mission to play surfy dancy punk enthusiastically, loudly and in 30-minute increments in the service of encouraging drinking, jumping, dancing, and being happy for everyone. Nat plays bass, Marlo plays drums, Vic plays guitar, and Cyn plays the other guitar and sometimes keys. Egalitarian through and through, vocal duties are shared communally via a vocal wheel posted in a prominent place in a shared space. Sounds like the soundtrack to a b-horror beach party with feminist zombies, smells like a party, looks like we’ll see you at our next show.



Vic began playing guitar when she was five years old. She made the rounds on the ska/hardcore scene in Hartford, Conn. from 1995 through 2000 with Golgo 13.


In college Cynthia played piano but then her keyboard started on fire and was too expensive to replace so she bought a guitar and learned how to play that instead. After that she played guitar and yelled in Screamin' Cyn Cyn & the Pons for a long time, mostly in Madison but also all across America.
Marlo has been banging on drum kits since she was a youth. She has been in several Chicago based bands in the past, and currently guests drums in a few Madison bands. She's also a drum instructor as well as a scientist.


Nat learned bass in college through late night rock sessions, alone with Gang of Four tabs and some post-punk disco records. She's Playing in a couple punk-metal groups in the past, and now masquerades as a full-fledged stage animal.
