From Odesa: Kommuna Lux plus special guests
September 10 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm EDT$35 – $40
Making its Manhattan debut – direct from Ukraine—Kommuna Lux is a hi-energy seven-piece band whose “Odesa gangsta folk” has been thrilling audiences for almost a decade with its beguiling mix of Klezmer and rowdy speakeasy tunes that have a bohemian Black Sea coastal vibe.
“In Odesa, people find togetherness. In Odesa, all will laugh and sing."
In 2014, surprised residents of Odesa encountered flash mobs making music all around town: at the Privoz market, on the old #5 wooden tram line, along the Primorsky Boulevard promenade, and on rusty, rocking boats at Lustdorf Beach. Concerts followed – in Ukraine, across Europe, in Israel. Since the Russian invasion, Kommuna Lux has been lifting spirits with its dazzling rhythms, refreshing anarchy, and joie de vivre while at the same time raising money to support the humanitarian effort in Ukraine.
Come join this unique party-for-a-good cause at Drom, where Kommuna Lux will be joined by David Amram, Julie Gold, Frank London, Willie Nile, and other guests in a very special concert that closes Ukraine Day at The Village Trip. Profits from the evening will benefit the Ukraine Children’s Action Project.
Tickets: $35 ($40 at the door)
There is a $20 per person, per table food/drink minimum to be seated.
