Sun. Jan. 15 at 2pm Guignol, Mischief Brew, Emilyn Brodsky
Guignol: [ geen-yol ] = literally, in the parlance of the treacherous
French, a puppet, or figuratively, a tale of the macabre and fantastic either
petite or grand. What you’ve got here is the raucous, theatrical, spastic and
melodramatic soundtrack for singing grifters, murderous marionettes, and
grease-painted gutterballs. It’s an oom-pah wedding, squealing and lyrical, that hits
like punk rockers and sings like a gypsy camp. "hard-hitting klezmer quartet
with accordion, clarinet, tuba, and killer drumming"– The New Yorker
Mischief Brew (pictured): Once upon a time, an energetic punk kid from the
Philly area confined himself to a basement with an acoustic guitar, a rickety
drum kit, a mandolin, and a four-track to stir a bunch of ideas together into
a broth of songs. The resulting concoction was “Mirth: or, Certain Verses
Composed and Fitted to Tunes, for the Delight and Recreation of All,” an
eight-song demo cassette of acoustic punk influenced by medieval danses and raucous
Romany dust-raising ditties. The tape had many styles of folk besides
traditional Americana: from the Klezmer-punk of “A Liquor Never Brewed” to the
medieval green-anarchist march of “One Stone Cast,” the tape robbed from many
cultural styles of folk music, and spiked the brew with punk rock. Mischief
Brew is Erik Petersen, and vice versa. The “Mirth” demo was only the beginning
of a phenomenon...
Emilyn Brodsky's real name is emily lyn brodsky. Like her name she isn't so
far from the truth. She receieved a ukulele for her 18th birthday and she
taught herself to play it and now she sings songs for her friends. And also to
herself in her bedroom when she is procrastinating paper writing. Her music
involves feelings, one of two strumming patterns, and delicious word choice.
she has been compared to Kimya Dawson and her father. The latter bothers her a
little, but she recognizes that he is a good man.
A $5.00 donation will be suggested at the door, but no one will be turned
away for lack of funds.
