Originating in the ’90s, the Polish band Księżyc has a cult following thanks to their distinctive experimental sound which combines vocals, acoustic instruments and tape and is influenced by minimalism, Slavic folk and psychedelia. Disbanding shortly after their debut album, Księżyc was inactive for nearly two decades only to make their return at Unsound 2014 in Kraków. Since then, they have released a new studio album, expanded their sound and successfully toured the world with their fascinating show. Tonight they perform their first ever show in the U.S. at St. Peter’s Church in Chelsea. Although admission is free, RSVPs are now closed; any unclaimed seats will be made available to the public on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 8:00 PM.
Księżyc is presented with Blank Forms and the Polish Cultural Institute New York.
