Uncivilisation Fest: Chaotic Jazz & Vegan Food

Spanning three nights of genre-bending tunes and “freak-folk-jazz”, Uncivilisation Fest XXXI comes to Brooklyn. With events and performances on September 7, 9 and 10, featuring the music collective Uncivilized, the festival contemplates the role of civilization post-climate change, while also being a counter-culture response to the chaos of society to create “post-postmodern sonic environmentalism”. The result is a truly unique sound from the 9 piece collective, plus vegan food from  bandleader UncivilizedTom's Café Uncivilized.

The finale of the festival, held at Record Shop (360 Van Brunt St), includes DJ DePasquale, readings by Sam Newsome and Shanyse Strickland, along with a finale performance by Uncivilized.
