Son of the Velvet Rat at East Village Coffee Lounge
Saturday, January 06, 2018 - 7:00pm
East Village Coffee Lounge presents an evening of live music featuring Son of the Velvet Rat on Saturday, January 6 at 7pm.
Georg Altziebler is the songwriting half of Son of the Velvet Rat, a husband-wife duo (with Heike Binder) who left their home town of Graz, Austria and the cloistered safety of the Continent for the endless highway of America, finally settling in California’s Mojave Desert in 2013. Situated at the vanguard of Euro-Americana, his songs build on the cabaret traditions of Old World masters like Georges Brassens, Jacques Brel and Fabrizio De Andre, now fused with the dark Old Testament prophecy and Kabbalistic visions conjured by Townes Van Zandt, Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan.
