Mark your calendars folks. This one will be for the books. If you like Arc Iris, AND you like Joni Mitchell, or even if you like one or the other, you are in for a treat. Arc Iris strives to reach the songwriting integrity of the Greats—Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen—while exploding the boundaries of pop music. The group bridges the digital computer music of Radiohead and Bjork to Brazilian Tropicalia, to Bowie-esque performance art. Bryanna Bradley, a Queens native and interdisciplinary artist, will open the evening with a special choreographed dance piece.

This is an all ages show. Bring ID if you plan on drinking.
