Joseph Keckler to Offer April 3 Midnight Mass Concert at Joe's Pub
The piece will focus on themes of sex and death. Keckler will be accompanied by violinist Dan Bartfield and a live band and will perform a set of original songs from his forthcoming EP, interspersing blues dirges, operatic arias, and unusual covers of Siouxsie Sioux, David Bowie, and others.
Keckler is a performance artist and operatically trained singer who combines signature vocal acrobatics with image-rich spoken word and uncanny characterizations. His shows have been produced at The New Museum, Ars Nova, Envoy Gallery, and as a part of the NYU Performance Studies Guest Artist Series.
