With their new record “The Butcher’s Share,” The Painted Bird returns to the road as the original radical Yiddish borderland bandits. The Berlin-based Detroit-born poet / translator / singer / multi-instrumentalist Daniel Kahn has reformed the band with new and old comrades: Berlin’s clarinet/sax/brass master Christian Dawid, New York’s Yiddish fiddle virtuoso Jake Shulman-Ment, expat experimental contrabassist Berlin composer Michael Tuttle, and classic klezmer drummer Hampus Melin.The live show features projected translations and images by legendary NY underground artist Eric Drooker, as well as material from the band’s new videos. New anthems like “Freedom Is A Verb” and Josh Waletzky’s “99%” speak to the political moment as much as they address eternal struggles of class and liberation.

Special guest Tsibele is a Brooklyn-based band on the vanguard of the klezmer revival, blending improvisation and traditional melodies. In 2017, they released their debut album, “It’s Dark Outside”, which has recieved acclaim across the klezmer sphere for its dark and atmospheric original arrangements of Yiddish songs. Tsibele’s music explores the themes of life and love under capitalism, tyranny and heteropatriarchy.

Concert sponsored by the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany New York
