Slavic Soul Party! 7:00 PM
Fiery Gypsy brass, soulful Balkan anthems and hipgrinding funk crackles with the energy of New York City.

John Medeski Plastic People of the Universe 7:30 PM

Animated Russian art-rockers Auktyon has engaged in a clamorous, theatrical hybrid for nearly three decades, and found a soulmate in keyboardist John Medeski. The Wall-toppling Velvet Revolution was musically stoked by the Plastic People of the Universe, a group of Czech upstarts that worshipped at the proto-punk altar of the Velvet Underground, adding flights of poetry and free jazz.
