Franz Nicolay is that mustachioed man-about-town and musician you may have seen with such groups as The Hold Steady and World/Inferno Friendship Society. He is the founder of new-music collective Anti-Social Music, and is working on a book for Vol. 1 Press.
Gorgeous old-world cabaret collides with modernity in this unique Brooklyn-based ensemble, which wrings elements of European folksong, post-war classical, and experimental rock into an otherworldly soundscape. For this performance the group will be playing new works along with pieces from their last record, Bella Ciao (Tzadik), which was inspired by ancient Roman-Jewish melodies and the Italian Resistance during the Second World War. With: Dan Kaufman, guitar; Danny Tunick, vibes, marimba; Peter Hess, clarinet and bass clarinet, Catherine McRae, violin; Peter Lettre, bass; John Bollinger, drums.
