Songwriter / Musician Tavo Carbone performs an evening of music and monologues, presenting material from upcoming studio album Narcissyphus. The program will consist of original songs on voice/piano and pre-recorded soundscapes. The evenings’ performance will also feature stories of Carbones’ roots growing up in 1980’s NYC in an Italian/Irish/German/Czec family, immersed in the culturally enriching NYC neighborhoods of West Village, Manhattan and Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.
Encountering rampant manifestations of racism, sexism, gentrification as experienced through the convoluted lens of an ever-changing environment that advertised consumerism, elitism and individualism; attending public schools in oversized classes and commuting to a high school near an ominously looming Trump Tower.
We invite all people to attend this evening’s program — irregardless of values, class, ethnicity, gender, sexual preference, political stance, religion or musical taste. CDs of Carbone's previous recordings will be available for sale and all funds will go towards release of new album Narcissyphus (out 9/11/18). A donation of $10 or more and email address grants a free digital download of the record on the day it is released.
We kindly request there be no intermittent applause during the program. Refreshments provided and tickets are pay-what-you-will. All ages welcome -- However, the presented material will contain discussion of sensitive issues and profanity.
