LA-based band Timur and the Dime Museum fuses sounds with fierceness and theatricality. Formed in 2010, following their collaboration with the Klaus Nomi songwriter Kristian Hoffman, the band is led by TIMUR, described by LA Times  as "extravagantly transgressive.”


After their successful debut on the prestigious ALOUD series and an appearance on “America’s Got Talent”, T&DM begun to perform around the U.S., opening for such artists as the Tiger Lilies, Mucca Pazza, The Red Paintings, and Ann Magnuson. They were featured at the Redcat Theater Gala with Jack Black, NYC’s Joe’s Pub, House of Blues LA, Lummis Day Festival and the Krampus LA Festival’s Ball, described by LA Weekly  as “haunting.” The band’s stunning intensity brings unconventional songs to cure the new depression with a bohemian attitude, combining Timur's “stratospheric voice” (LA Times) with guitar, bass, keys and drums. 


T&DM collaborated with member Daniel Corral on Zoophilic Follies at NOW Festival at Redcat Theater; multimedia project Crescent City by Anne LeBaron and the Industry LA; and in 2013 made their East Coast debut as part of the Beth Morrison’s PROTOTYPE Festival at HERE Arts Center. In 2014, the band premiered COLLAPSE, a post-ecological Requiem, produced by BMP in collaboration with Victor Wilde of the Bohemian Society and video artist Jesse Gilbert. Commissioned by Redcat Theater in LA, with performances at Miami Light Project, Operadagen Rotterdam Festival, Showcase@CSUSB and an upcoming NYC premiere as part of BAM 2015 Next Wave Festival. New projects include Point of Presence by Daniel Corral, Permanent Revolution by TIMUR and Ori Barel and Gulliver's Travels by Gregory Vajda, produced by Miranda Wright and LAPP.
