Mix @ The Max
feat. Gabriel Kahane & Rob Moose*
Wednesday, March 18 @ 7 PM
6 PM - Mix. Mingle. Eat. Drink.
7 PM - Listen.
Folk intersects with classical music as this multi-faceted duo takes the stage for an evening of tender and intimate song. As a composer of string quartets, musicals, and pop songs, Gabriel Kahane recently had his major label debut with The Ambassador. Co-producer, Rob Moose (Bon Iver) is also featured on the album, and joins Kahane on stage to recreate selections from the critically acclaimed alternative-folk release.
"One of the year's very best albums." — Rolling Stone
"The most remarkable thing he achieves here, in song after song, might just be his vivid yet subtle articulation of empathy." — The New York Times
"There is a darkness at the heart of Gabriel Kahane's lilting, lyrical, loving art songs to Los Angeles . . . The Ambassador deserves a sopon on a bookshelf dedicated to LA." — LA Observed
"Needs to be heard." — NPR
