Bella's Bartok @Congress St. Social Club 

Bella’s Bartok @Congress St. Social Club

Experience true eclecticism on Congress Street with Northampton, Massachusetts-hailing Bella’s Bartok.

Inspired by the folk music of band members’ immigrant grandparents, pop, vaudeville, and Americana, Bella’s Bartok has grown from a group of street-punk performers to a full-fledged touring band with brass, accordion, banjo, keyboard, and more. With influences running the gamut of Tom Waits, Frank Zappa, and System of a Down, it’s a spectacle to behold.

Most recently, the band released the album Change Yer Life, highlighting the band’s particular angle of klezmer punk and circus whimsy. Thematically, listeners will find stories of Lovecraft-inspired hijinks and compositions exploring social justice, horror, and beyond. Some songs feature familiar tales from Jewish folklore and supernatural stories, while others take a more personal turn.

Saturday, February 17, 10:30 p.m., free, 21+
