Rue Mevlana is a synth--pop group based out of Burlington, Vermont. Often called, "the rue crew" by friends & fans. Named after a random street in Belgium. The group formed in 2005 and began writing & staging very unique performance pieces . In 2007, Rue Mevlana released their first album Drop the F Bomb, followed by Bats & Bees in 2009, Synthetic Emotion in 2012 & Pop Corn in 2015. In October 2018 a double vinyl collection of newly mixed & remastered songs titled Mythology will be available.
The Rue Crew are known for their elaborate, multimedia stage shows. Their shows offer an abundance of fashion, glam, sex, schmaltz, humor, horror and are occasionally sociopolitical in nature, yet always fun entertainment. They are often a staple at the annual “Winter is a Drag Ball” benefit for the VT people with AIDS coalition.
