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, in advance of an extensive European tour, the group will be playing works mainly from it’s last record, Bella Ciao, inspired by ancient Roman-Jewish melodies and the Italian Resistance during the Second World War. The album was released late last year on John Zorn’s Tzadik label and described as one of the two best albums of 2013 by Thom Jurek of allmusic.com. With: Dan Kaufman, guitar; Danny Tunick, vibes, marimba; Ken Thomson, clarinet and bass clarinet, Dan Coates, electronics; Catherine McRae, violin; Andrew Jones, bass; John Bollinger, drums.
