Event Details Marc Ribot Plays Charlie Chaplin’s The Kid

Presented by FRINGE MUSIC


Opening with a solo set, this show features a screening of Charlie Chaplin’s classic film, The Kid, with a live score provided by Marc Ribot. Commissioned and premiered in Jan 2010 by the NY Guitar Festival at Merkin Hall, Ribot’s delicate and at times haunting solo guitar score to The Kid contemporizes this film, which remains a relevant story about our current economic and social conditions.

Marc Ribot, one of the great eclectic, electric guitarists, has released over 20 albums under his own name over a 35-year career, exploring everything from the pioneering jazz of Albert Ayler with his group Spiritual Unity (Pi Recordings), to the Cuban son of Arsenio Rodríguez producing two critically acclaimed releases with Atlantic Records under Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos, and his latest Silent Movies released in 2010 on Pi Recordings was described as a “down-in- mouth-near masterpiece” by the Village Voice.

There is no late seating for this event.

We love live music. To kick off a great year of FRINGE MUSIC in the Logan Fringe Arts Space and around our city, we asked local music-lovers to curate their favorite bands for six nights of community and celebration. Join music-lovers and musicians as we find winter warmth in our December Fringe Music Series

Do you love live music too? Contact us about being a music curator. Live music happens every Thursday in the Trinidad Theatre beginning in January 2016. Email
