Summer in Chicago  

We're back in Chicago for 7 weeks before we hit the road again. Hopefully we'll do studious things like learn a couple new languages, go to the beach every day, mow lawns for the elderly, work back up to 7 mile runs, read 8 works of great fiction, etc.


Or just eat a lot of bbq. 






The Grossest Thing About Music Festivals 

Okay so we have loooong drives between shows.  

Recently we spent hours in the hot heat of the no-cell-signal desert. No podcasts. No gas stations. No indoor bathrooms. We saw a lot of porta potties, but we saw rows and rows of them when we played our first music festival last night: The Norman Music Festival.


So the road is long, and only so many people event want me to send postcards, so I started making a list of porta-potty names.  


Royal Throne 

Oui Oui 



Drop Zone (!!!!) 

Doodie Calls

Cruising through Utah 


We're whipping through miles and miles of rocky, dusty deserts and chunky, melting mountains and hills.

Zigtebra plays Salt Lake City tonight and after that we head towards Colorado to melt into the arms of some friends and hike some pine-fresh mountain air. 

If you rate/review Zigtebra on our FB page, we'll send you a special personalized postcard from somewhere on the road! After rating, email us with your mailing address via our contact page or directly: zigtebra@gmail.com

I am a romantic, grown up Wednesday Addams  

Roy Brown of The Voyager, Pensacola, wrote about our show at Chizuko on February 17th!

"The sound of Zigtebra is what you would expect Wednesday Addams to be into, if she were to become a romantic like her parents. Spooky tones, deep synthesizer beats and crystal-clear vocals full of emotion and desire — something trance-like and pure — that is the sound of Zigtebra."


This is our favorite description ever. 

Orlando Weekly article about our show at Iron Cow 

Orlando Florida has more magic than Mickey Mouse. There are lizards, and rockers, and weirdos, and cool shows at The Iron Cow. 

Bao Le-Huu of Orlando Weekly was front and center photographing the show. I kept wondering who this attentive person was. 

Surprise, they reviewed the show and we couldn't be more delighted with the article! 

"Even with a simplistic setup and ethos, they perform with a sense of wonder that’s contagious, likeable and utterly pure. What their basic electronic pop does show, though, is how secondary things like production and hardware are when you got the songs."

Pictures were taken by Bao Le-Huu on the night of the show. Thanks Bao! <3 

Savannah, GA 

Good Morning Y'all! 


It's a foggy, rainy morning in Savannah, GA, which is a perfect way to slowly wake up and remember the incredible fun we had last night.

Zigtebra opened for The Savannah Sweet Tease burlesque troupe's fundraiser at The Jinx. The troupe closed the night with a brief tease of a show, including a Carmen San Diego number. MEOW! 

Afterwards we hopped from bar to bar with the guidance of two of Joe's local friends, walking down steep historical steps, winding alley-ways, floating in bubble fields, finding ourselves in the middle of packed dance floors, country-line dancing, and suddenly being signed up for mechanical bull rides. 

It was a blur of fun and magic. SAVANNAH. Wow.

And, bonus, we made a special promise about the rest of the year for Zigtebra! ^_^

2018 Tour #1 

Howdy Friends!

We're in a McDonald's in Tallahassee working on booking the latter half of our 4.5 month tour. It's our first of two tours in 2018. We'll be going everywhere south and everywhere up the coasts. We're skipping the creamy middle Midwest because IT'S COLD Y'ALL, but we'll make it up to you on Tour #2. 

If you haven't seen Zigtebra in a hot minute, you need to come to a show on this tour. We're so psyched on our new stage show that it's the first time every we've felt 100% like you must come. Emily has a sparkly bodysuit and Joseph is in mega hunk super fitness mode with a hot leather jacket. We're playing the best songs we wrote over the past year, like "Want You," "Wildlife," "I Can Dance," and of course also "Bay Bay."

We have a special secret to share in a few weeks. Stay tuned and join our email list if you haven't yet!

P.S. If you wanna hang out with us in person, let us know where you want us to play when we come through your town on tour. We'd love to meet you!

Warmest Regards, 
E / M


P.P.S. Chattanooga was AMAZING! We played Frequency Arts and JJ's Bohemia. Both venues rocked, and we made new forever friends in Mouth Gremlin and El Bandito. Thanks Chatty! <3







Wow 12 new songs and new music videos, representing every month in 2017. What a fun journey. I'm getting addicted. Do you like computers?

November Song and Music Video is LIVE "Paradise" 

Just in time for Halloween, we have a special treat, our new song and music video, "Paradise." It's hard to believe we've made 11 new songs and music videos this year AND gone on a 4 month tour AND we're booking our tour that starts in January. November is a month of gratitude and I am really feeling grateful for all of our hard work and all of our adventures.

Hope you love it! Share it!


Love you, 

Emily Rose & Joe Zeph
