Yes, it’s criminal that this site hasn’t been updated since June! A national four week tour! Too many adventures to count! A band on the run! Several spectacular homecoming shows in the DC metro area! New songs! A new album to be recorded soon! So much news!
Thorough updates on all these matters will come in time (but keep checking our facebook and twitter accounts for more timely missives). Right now we must advise you regarding one particular show. Saturday, October 26th Caustic Casanova will share the stage with the mighty gods of heavy rock from Savannah, Georgia, the peerless Kylesa! Yes, it’s true – possibly the two greatest bands of the last decade, Caustic Casanova and Kylesa, will share a bill for the first time. Can you feel the magic in the air? The electricity? The madness? IT’S TIME TO ROCK.
The show is in Springfield, VA at Empire – details in the gigs section. Doors at 7, CC at 8. Don’t miss this one kids. Next stop after the Kylesa show is November 11th at the Velvet Lounge in DC.
Ladies and gents, it’s been far too long since this site has been updated, and for that we apologize most heartily to you, CC Nation. Because there is so much news to report, it seems the only way to proclaim it is to do so with as much brevity as possible. In February, Caustic Casanova officially welcomed the brilliant Andrew Yonki to its ranks as guitar player. The band has been performing critically acclaimed shows as the “Mark II” trio – Francis Beringer, Stefanie Zaenker, and Andrew Yonki. Most of the material being performed is new. More and more new Caustic Casanova music awaits the world in the coming months. And finally, after playing at JR’s in Philadelphia on July 5 and headlining the Rock and Roll Hotel at home in DC on July 6, Caustic Casanova will be venturing out on the road for the biggest and best CC tour yet. From North Carolina to Seattle and all points between, Caustic Casanova will rock around the nation this July and August. Tour dates and all current relevant information for those dates are in the Shows section. More posts and more news to come, including any and all tour changes or updates.
Caustic Casanova has some big announcements for you. Stay tuned, all will be revealed in the fullness of time. In the interval, check out the updated Show Listings. You might just find a SHOW LISTING FOR TODAY, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27th at 8:00 PM!
Today, Monday January 28th, CC Lite (Zaenker/Beringer) will perform more rockin’ jams with dear friends North of Canada at The Galaxy Hut in Arlington, VA! Be there! North of Canada at 9, CC Lite at 10. Rumors persist that CC Lite will be performing a few songs with a special guest musician. We can neither confirm or deny.
Just kidding, CC Lite will be playing ONE MORE SHOW. Thursday, November 1st! TONIGHT!
Again, Francis Beringer and Stefanie Zaenker will present a unique, not-to-be-missed show of all new material as CC Lite, a drum/bass two piece version of Caustic Casanova.
Caustic Casanova goes on at 8 PM at Dahlak, located at 1771 U St. NW Washington, DC. Also playing are new rock n roll friends Pile, Two Inch Astronaut, and Loudsprings. Doors at 7 PM.
Hello brothers and sisters of the heavy rock cloth!
Caustic Casanova will be appearing at Ghion Ethiopian Restaurant on Friday, October 5th in Washington, DC at midnight as part of the Sweet Tea Pumpkin Pie Music Festival.
This will be a very special, possibly one time only opportunity to see CC Lite, a two piece bass and drum incarnation of the band featuring Francis Beringer and Stefanie Zaenker of the CC performing almost exclusively new and never before heard material.
The Friday evening showcase at Ghion starts at 8 PM and will have bands playing until 1:30 AM. Other bands playing include G.U.T.S., Glitterlust, Get a Tan, and Shat Shorts. CC Lite will go on promptly at 12:10 and play a 30 minute set.
Check the “shows” tab for more information. Don’t miss this very rare Caustic Casanova Lite experience.

Calling all CC Fans, and soon to be fans – Just a quick update to let you know our fine new album has been named ‘Album of the Month’ by the national indie music scene mag, The Deli Magazine. Quoting from our recent Onion AV Club review, they agree, [Caustic Casanova's music is], “uniquely brainy hard rock, heavy yet clever in a Torche meets Dismemberment Plan kind of way.” We think that’s a cool definition of our sound, so if you don’t have the album yet pick one up on our merch page and find out for yourselves if you agree! And thanks as always for listening and supporting us.
