Seth Faergolzia opens the Wednesday night Open Mic Poetry at 9pm...poets at 10pm,

an eclectic performer from New York (Genres: folk/acoustic/rock/improvisational/spoken word).


Seth Faergolzia was the mastermind behind Dufus, possibly the most creative and well-loved underground band in the Anti-folk/Freakfolk communities of New York City (publicly regaled by Adam Green, Regina Spektor and Jeffrey Lewis), and with a likewise respected solo career, Seth is now stacking up more than ten albums and playing in over 20 countries with such acts as The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Jeffrey Lewis, The Moldy Peaches, Animal Collective and others just as impressive.  Seth continues to stretch the boundaries of musical experience with craze and care unmatched by the contemporaries with whom his style has been compared (including Frank Zappa, Deerhoof, Devendra Banhart, and The Dirty Projectors), with an increasingly honed wisdom & intimacy.

Faergolzia brings his one-man-band skills to new levels of musical sagacity, mastering simultaneously the guitar, kick drum, electronics, vocal acrobatics, and various melodic instruments, concocting music which lives free beyond the scope of particular genre labels. With harmonic subtlety, poetically experimental lyricism and all around dynamic song writing, each of Seth’s performances lovingly unweaves time to reveal moments honest & organic in exploration of possibility.
