The Music Tapes present: The Traveling Imaginary
The Music Tapes are very pleased to be bringing The Traveling Imaginary back to New York City, September 3-6, at the 133rd St. Arts Center Lab. Deemed "magic and enchanting," "transforming," and one of the "top five shows of the year" by NPR Music's Bob Boilen, these performances are FREE in celebration of what has been a very special year for The Music Tapes and are a thank you to all of YOU for making it possible.
As soon as audiences walk through the door, they will be greeted with The Music Tapes' surreal, carnival-esque games before entering a specially-made circus tent for an immersive, dreamlike show that includes songs from the band's newest album Mary's Voice ("a grand, genre-straddling vision in sound"--Pitchfork), antique 16mm cartoons, virtuoso Klezmer music performed on the singing saw, Julian Koster's unique narratives about dehydrated European cities and half-imagined children's games, a 12-foot snowman, and an array of mechanical contraptions like Static the Singing Television and the 7-Foot Tall Metronome.
PLEASE NOTE: Thank you for such an overwhelming response! We are amazed that the shows filled up so quickly! As spots open up, they will be available to reserve here, so please continue to check back. We also strongly encourage you to join our standby list by writing us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the date and time you'd like to attend. We will try to accommodate as many requests as possible on a first-come/first-served basis.
If you are unable to attend after RSVP-ing, please cancel your order through Brown Paper Tickets so that we can release your spot to someone else. Thank you very much!
This is a special, limited engagement run of free performances and capacity is very limited.
