Conceived in the musical hotbed of New York City’s Lower East Side, Polygraph Lounge is the duo of Rob Schwimmer and Mark Stewart. Plundering the common cultural currency of yesterday, today and tomorrow, the virtuosic duo specializes in musical hilarity/anarchy in the Spike Jones tradition.
Individually, Rob and Mark have worked with a who’s who list of artists including: Paul Simon, Wayne Shorter, Steve Reich, Laurie Anderson, Bang on a Can, Stevie Wonder, Annette Peacock, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Willie Nelson, Anthony Braxton, Kurt Vonnegut, and many more.
Joining them will be their amazingly versatile vocalist, Melissa Fathman.
Dec 16th provides a rib-tickling musical rollercoaster ride in the spirit of Spike Jones, Victor Borge, PDQ Bach, and Weird Al Yankovic—featuring an audience noseflute choir. Dec 17th, of a slightly more serious nature, shows off their stunning musicianship with works by Steve Reich, David Lang, Manuel De Falla, Rob Schwimmer and Mark Stewart.
