Tonight! An Evening of Songs and Trapeze (No, That’s the Right There in the Official Name of the Event. It Says So on the Flyer. Look!)

That’d be at Union Pool tonight, featuring piano-and-cello duets and other plinky sea chanty-type songs, from friend-of-the-L Hannah Marcus (check the haunting, intricate “A Virgin Graveyard”, and listen through all the way to the ragged minimalist singalong) and others. Appropriately, as the event is a benefit for the Swimming Cities of Serenissima, the artist Swoon’s see-it-to-believe-it fleet of delicately handmade ships (or sculptures?) that will sail from Slovenia to Venice this spring.

So, in conclusion: poetic, pure folk tunes and improbable ships. Also, trapeze?
