Lane Series Presents: Daniel Kahn and The Painted Bird
Daniel Kahn and The Painted Bird, with their immersive and edgy performance style, live up to their reputation as “radical Yiddish borderland bandistas with punk attitude.” Dedicated to the great political and personal themes of our time, they play revolutionary anthems for the apocalypse. The music is part Klezmer, part jazz, and part Weimar Cabaret, with homages to Brecht, Tom Waits, and folk ballads. Kahn and his band are originals who do not shy away from subversive themes. Daniel was supposed to be a part of the Semer Ensemble music tour last season but had a prior commitment, and so we’re excited to present him this season, with his own band, in the atmospheric black box theater of the FlynnSpace.
