Gig Alert: Elysian Fields

Elysian Fields
Playing Tuesday at Le Poisson Rouge
(158 Bleecker St., Greenwich Village)
Get: Tickets ($15) | Directions

For over 15 years, Elysian Fields has managed to make a steady stream of great music that has not entered the realm of the musical mainstream. Despite overseas success, the band's genre-less sound — equal parts rock-and-roll, no-wave jazz, and folk-song — has been hard to commodify in the U.S. But that hasn’t seemed to bother eclectic co-composers Oren Bloedow and Jennifer Charles. This Tuesday night at Elysian Fields, the duo releases its first domestic album in ten years, Last Night on Earth, which features this velvet cut, “Chance.” To record the album, Elysian Fields employed the help of a long list of hometown buddies, including members of Bon Iver’s band, John Medeski, and the omnipresent Antibalas horns. So expect a cameo-laden live show tonight at LPR.

Elysian Fields is the most amazing band on Earth and Jennifer a living Goddess! Typical that your country has not sent them to the heights of success and fame they enjoy in France and the rest of the World. We would say "You can keep Gaga- we'll take the Lady Jennifer. You may one day appreciate her when she is gone..we love and adore her now and forever"!!!!
