This Sunday! Seth Faergolzia (Multibird, 23 Psaegz) returns to Syracuse to perform his explosive solo set! This total artist leaves audiences in awe and wonderment and is ready to make your jaw drop- come experience him LIVE in the intimate setting of Alto Cinco #LateNight!!

Seth Faergolzia has blazed colorful trails into modes of expression we couldn’t have foreseen even when Dufus were being hailed as “freak folk” innovators. Now, whether leading his current world-touring band Multibird, the 18-person ensemble 23 Psaegz, or taking the stage as a one-man tornado of sound, Faergolzia continues to shake musical conventions until they froth over and explode.

When Faergolzia first emerged out of lower Manhattan at the turn of the millennium, he cut a Wonka-esque figure as a trailblazer committed to pursuing his muse on the fringe of the fringes, quickly distinguishing himself as a flamboyant visionary with a penchant for bending minds. Naturally, the surface absurdism of his output drew comparisons to likeminded iconoclasts like Captain Beefheart, Zappa, Ween, and Mr. Bungle. But where his music was once celebrated as a vibrant example of what happens when a musician turns a genre like folk upside down and inside out, over time Faergolzia has come to represent something of a genre unto himself.
