Born at a Mardi Gras party in Portland, Oregon, MarchFourth Marching Band has become one of the nation's best live touring acts -- and you can catch them outdoors on Pier 15 backed by beautiful waterfront views. More than just a concert, a MarchFourth show is a celebration, with stilt-walkers, unicyclists, fire eaters, puppets, flag twirlers, clown antics, acrobatics and more, accompanied by an eclectic big band in marching band costumes. Anchored by funky electric bass and featuring a 12-piece horn section and a 10-piece drum/percussion corps, MarchFourth takes you on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the gypsy camps of Eastern Europe to the African jungle by way of Brazil, while honoring the musical traditions of American funk, rock and jazz. Opening for MarchFourth is Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution, a foot-stompin' gumbo of roots rock, old-school soul and New Orleans rhythms. Learn More

This was amazing. The most fun Ive had in a long time. It really is a rave mixed with a show, opera mixed with rock, amazing mixed with awesome.

I and my wife love the show. There was a mix of classical music, electronic music with ballet and opera thrown in. It was a hard to describe dance party. Our only problem was the venue itself which let everyone in an hour late with no explanation.

AcousticaElectronica makes its New York City debut at Le Poisson Rouge, after it’s smash success at Boston’s OBERON, the theatre-club of the American Repertory Theatre, with a unprecedented level of music and spectacle that blends the virtuosity found in the classical concert hall with the infectious energy of the late-night dance club. The best of both worlds: artistic depth and irresistible appeal. It is sexy and classy, sensuous and stoic, irreverent and reverential.
AcousticaElectronica presents some of the most innovative music from well-established and hot up-and-coming producers and composers. Bach meets a dance club back-beat, Carmen’s habanera meets techno, and Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata blends with trance for a listening experience unlike anything you have ever heard before.
This ultimate dance party becomes an immersive experience for the audience. Dancers, symphonies, operas, ballets, and live musicians all happen around every inch of the space to keep the audience guessing at every turn. A classical world becomes the technicolor world of the dance club as the audience escapes from their real lives to experience a night of dream, abandon, and ecstasy…
