Where else can one find Muppets, monsters, and wonder-filled mayhem? For one night and one only, Bella’s Bartok, Arc Iris, and Mammal Dap will grace the stage to deliver a show of spontaneously epic proportions. This is a costumed event with a Muppets theme (optional). Come prepared, come wild, and unfettered.
Inspired by elements of vaudeville and centuries of street performance, Northampton-based Bella’s Bartok delivers a passionate kaleidoscope of sound. The songs are born of Americana and the folk music of their immigrant grandparents, blended with the joy of a particular brand of pop sensibility. Their performances are at once a primal stand against oppression and a declaration of joy in the face of adversity. From quiet reflections on loss, to the howl of justice in four-part harmony, Bella’s Bartok sonically and lyrically delivers a sweaty, soulful dance-party that is sure to leave the audience happily breathless.
The concert will be held at Hawks & Reed Performing Arts Center, 289 Main Street. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Advance tickets are $17 and available at http://hawksandreed.com (day of show tickets will be $20).
