With songs about Siamese twins, marching mannequins, and decrepit trailer parks, Brooklyn's One Ring Zero continues to embrace its Fellini-esque-lit-rock reputation with crafty lyrics (which Michael Hearst and Joshua Camp wrote this time) and odd-ball instruments, as they celebrate the release of their new album "Wake Them Up" (Barbès Records). This album follows their 2004 release "As Smart As We Are", which featured songs with lyrics written for the band by many of North America's top authors: Paul Auster, Margaret Atwood, Jonathan Lethem, Neil Gaiman, A.M. Homes, Dave Eggers, etc. Tonight's performance features special guests Claudia Gonson (The Magnetic Fields) and Rick Moody (Wingdale Community Singers and author of The Ice Storm)""Accordions, organs, theremins, and the occasional brass horn ... combine to make soundscapes that are both haunting and entertaining." --The New Yorker
