If you would like to attend, simply RSVP below (or directly at Brown Paper Tickets) to one of the following performances:

 

 

 

Deemed "magic and enchanting," "transforming," and one of the "top five shows of the year" by NPR Music's Bob Boilen, these performances are FREE in celebration of what has been a very special year for The Music Tapes and are a thank you to all of YOU for making it possible.

 

As soon as audiences walk through the door, they will be greeted with The Music Tapes' surreal, carnival-esque games before entering a specially-made circus tent for an immersive, dreamlike show that includes songs from the band's newest album Mary's Voice ("a grand, genre-straddling vision in sound"—Pitchfork), antique 16mm cartoons, virtuoso Klezmer music performed on the singing saw, Julian Koster's unique narratives about dehydrated European cities and half-imagined children's games, a 12-foot snowman, and an array of mechanical contraptions like Static the Singing Television and the 7-Foot Tall Metronome.
