Daniel Kahn & The Painted Bird

March 21, 2013 @ 8:00 pm - 12:00 am

$15 - $25

CD Release Concert for “Bad Old Songs”

“Detroit-born, Berlin-based singer/songwriter, poet, translator, activist Daniel Kahn concocts furious, tender, electrifying and revolutionary Alienation Klezmer. “Accordion charged with punkrock… the free-spirited attitude of the New York Tzadik circle, cabaret flair, and scraps of Tom Waits.”
-Rolling Stone [Germany]

Formed in Berlin in 2005, The Painted Bird has built an international cult following, touring from Moscow to Marseille, Istanbul to Indiana. Playing everywhere from underground punk clubs to Central Park Summer Stage, Turkish cabarets to abandoned Polish synagogues, Daniel Kahn and the band challenge the borders between radical and traditional, lyrical and political, east and west, folk and punk, mama loshn and loshn hora.
