Geoff Berner Show-ONLINE TICKET SALES CLOSED-- TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR
Clever and literate, Berner’s songs can make you want to weep, laugh, grind your teeth, or kick out a window–often all at the same time. His writing can be overtly political, overtly left wing, leaning towards anarchy, but free of easy slogans or clichés.
As a musician, Berner is mainly known as a practitioner of the “klezmer-punk” style, which combines the traditional folk music of Eastern European Jews with punk’s aggressive energy and disdain for slick perfection. The new album Canadiana Grotesquica is a brief departure. Berner describes it as a “country-tinged singer-songwriter affair.”
