Eclectic world music/folk band Dr. Caterwaul’s Cadre of Clairvoyant Claptraps play the music of tango master Astor Piazzolla at Best Video Performance Space on Wednesday, July 24. The show starts at 8 PM and the cover is a sliding scale of $5-10 (pay what you can in that range).
With its seamless blend of tango, jazz, and classical music, composer Astor Piazzolla’s nuevo tango took over the world like tango itself had two generations before. Piazzolla’s compositional voice reverberates today through film scores, music for television, and pretty much any music that’s evocatively badass.
Dr. Caterwaul members have been talking about doing an evening of Astor Piazzolla’s music pretty much since they’ve been together as a band. When you hear Piazzolla’s music, you’ll know why.
