Local Music Spotlight: Rosegarden Funeral Party

May 21, 2021 | Deep Ellum Team

Live music is back in Deep Ellum! One of the most memorable parts of a night out in Deep Ellum has been sorely missed since the beginning of the Covid-19 Pandemic last March. But, no need to miss Deep Ellum’s music scene any more as rousing sets can be heard 7 nights a week at venues across the district. One venue that has long served as a headquarters for local musicians and music-lovers is Three Links. After a difficult year of shutdowns and closures, Three Links is bringing some of the most talented artists in the city to their stage. We reached out to Scott Beggs and Kaia Bellanca to see which local artist the Three Links Team has been loving lately and they chose to feature local rockers, Rosegarden Funeral Party! 

Rosegarden Funeral Party is a pop-punk band from Dallas consisting of frontwoman and guitarist Leah Lane, bassist Wil Farrier, and drummer Dylan Stamas. On the front, Rosegarden Funeral Party evokes traditional goth punk music, but beneath the surface, their influences combine to bring something wholly original to Deep Ellum’s music scene. With inspiration ranging from The Smiths-style moody crooning and hook-driven synth-pop of the 1980s to the thumping percussive rhythms of dark dance floors, the band takes chaos and turns it into beauty. 

If you haven’t yet had a chance to see Rosegarden Funeral Party in Deep Ellum, they have two shows coming up this summer at Three Links on June 18 and July 16th! To get you ready for the experience of a Rosegarden Funeral Party live show, the Three Links team put together a list of 4 must-listen to songs by the band: Gates of Heaven, Salvation and Saving Face, Once in a While, and Ill and Getting Worse

“This band captures the true spirit of Deep Ellum. The best part of the pandemic was spending time with them and getting to know them better. A great band and even better humans.” – Scott Beggs
