Artist Edward Gorey, known as "master of the macabre," collaborated with the cabaret trio The Tiger Lillies to translate Gorey's ironic, gruesome images into song. Gorey died before the band finished composing, but The Tiger Lillies will debut music from the album The Gorey End for American audiences tonight in Los Angeles. The Tiger Lillies talk about working with Edward Gorey.
