Overview

With a name that harkens back to a late 1800s New York vaudeville act, this moveable feast of an event—curated and presented by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and songwriter Paul Muldoon—combines music, prose and poetry, and high commentary and low comedy with an evolving lineup of world-class guests and house band Rogue Oliphant. We are delighted to present this beloved artist-curated omnium gatherum, and its mix of joyful casualness and breathtaking artistry, in our state-of-the-art new home. 

FEATURING
Yiyun Li, novelist
Danielle McLaughlin, author
Willie Nile, singer-songwriter
Rogue Oliphant, Chris Harford (guitar and vocals), Ray Kubian (drums), David Mansfield (guitar), Cáit O’Riordain (bass), Warren Zanes (guitar) 


“Okay, it’s not actually a picnic but a music-and-literature extravaganza”—TIME OUT NEW YORK
