FRANZ NICOLAY (The Hold Steady) @ Cyprus Ave: Aug 7th



DROP-D.IE PRESENTS

FRANZ NICOLAY
+ PETE MAC PARADOX

THIS TUESDAY, AUGUST 7TH
CYPRUS AVENUE **NOTE VENUE CHANGE**
€5 AT THE DOOR, €4 WITH INDIEPENDENCE/LISSARD TICKET


The perfect post-festival cure! And cheap in with your ticket!

"One of today's master singer/songwriters and musicians." - Philadelphia Examiner

"A performer with a real streak of genius." - Maverick Magazine

"Nicolay's skill at playing punk sage on one song and slightly troubled troubadour on the next is really something special." - Pitchfork

"Recasting the windswept folk artist as someone with piratical swagger…like Nick Cave leading an American Pogues," - Q Magazine

Franz Nicolay is that multi-instrumentalist and man-about-town, peddling a modern vaudeville with full-throated songs and stories shamelessly strident, stentorian and more than a little sentimental. He's been a member of cabaret-punk circus World/Inferno Friendship Society, world's best bar band The Hold Steady, gypsy-klezmer carnies Guignol, outlaw orchestra Anti-Social Music, and agit-punks Against Me!; and performed or recorded with everyone from Leftover Crack to Bruce Springsteen. He has been a contributor to magazines from Blender to Impose, is a regular columnist for the literary journal InDigest, and has released several collections of essays. His first story collection, ‘Complicated Gardening Techniques’, was published by Julius Singer Press in 2009.

Nicolay has been hailed as a charismatic "born performer," "a storyteller and entertainer in the cabaret and vaudevillian tradition.
