Polygraph Lounge


Keyboards-theremin wizard Rob Schwimmer and Bang on a Can guitarist Mark Stewart’s new-music cabaret is a delightfully absurdist hoot for the whole family. Hence tonight’s early show, “Bring the Kids!!” and its after-bedtime counterpart, “Songs of Baloney (Don’t Bring the Kids!!).” Along with the operatically inclined Melissa Fathman, the virtuosic duo take a lysergic Spike Jones approach to the rock and classical canons, with dollops of topical humor, audience participation, and artful soundscaping.
