Mucca Pazza w/ TBD
Friday, May 21st 2010
Mucca Pazza is a 30 piece self-described "circus punk marching band" based in Chicago. Conceived by composer Mark Messing, the band, whose name comes from the Italian for "crazy cow," has been performing in and around the Chicago area for over four years. Their repertoire ranges from Balkan-brass to covers of 60's television show themes as well as themes from Shostakovich and Bartok. They have performed nationally at many well known venues and concerts including McCarren Park Pool, True/False Film Festival, Looptopia, Lollapalooza, Rothbury Music Festival, Tour de Fat, and were featured on Late Night with Conan O'Brien in 2006.
Mucca Pazza played to a mesmerized crowd at the 2009 Global Union World Music Festival. They had kids and adults on their feet dancing in the sunshine on a beautiful September day.
Their debut album, A Little Marching Band, was released in 2006 and is distributed by Southern Records. Their second full-length album, Plays Well Together, was released in June 2008. The band's song "Borino Oro" was featured in a season 4 episode of the Showtime television show Weeds.
