Why you love the Fringe.

Passive Aggressives Anonymous

September 15th at 9:00pm

Labeled "croon-rock," the music of Passive Aggressives Anonymous evokes nostalgia for early vocal jazz while reinterpreting the genre with hilarious dry wit. Singer John Valenti discusses the travails of being a ninja with a broken heart as well as the anxiety of having to make love in outer space. Deftly-orchestrated percussion, strings, and piano underlie the crooning Valenti to create a performance that’s both dramatic and oddly funny.

Leo Crandall

September 16th at 6:30pm

"Musical themes usually deal in some way with transcendence…that only asks that you let it transport you, which it does – with strange, old-rooted, sepia-toned, sometimes bewildering majesty.” –Nathan Turk, SYRACUSE NEW TIMES. "It’s powerful and moving…dark and oppressively beautiful, with Crandall showing substantial instrumental prowess." –Leicester Bangs. “Leo Crandall the Revelator: a fine aching blues voice with an ear for unusual, arrhythmic arrangements.” –Jeff Spevak, DEMOCRAT AND CHRONICLE.
