Krankies is proud to announce that we'll be hosting THE MUSIC TAPES (Merge Records) on their upcoming east coast tour on Wednesday, January 23!!! The Music Tapes will perform in a custom made circus tent inside the venue. Capacity is limited.
In support of their new album, Mary's Voice, The Music Tapes (Julian Koster, Robbie Cucchiaro, The 7-Foot-Tall Metronome, a legion of singing saws, and friends) are embarking on a unique US tour. Called The Traveling Imaginary
The tent, which was funded by The Music Tapes’ recently successful Kickstarter campaign, has been a longtime dream of Julian’s. On entering the completed structure for the very first time, he said, “If you made a circus tent out of blankets in your room when you were a little kid and then fell asleep, it's like the dream you would have.”
The Music Tapes have a long history of hosting surreal tours since they first emerged as part of the influential Elephant 6 Collective in the late 1990s – including the annual Caroling and Lullaby tours that have brought them into over 500 homes across the country. The Traveling Imaginary is an extension of those shows on a more ambitious scale than anything The Music Tapes has ever done. Stay tuned for more details on the show!!
