With the April release of Xenia Rubinos' head-turning debut album Magic Trix (Ba Da Bing) the fast-rising Brooklyn singer and keyboardist has seen acclaim roll in from Pitchfork, NPR, The Wall Street Journal and more. To celebrate, Rubinos and drummer/collaborator Marco Buccelli have confirmed a string of New York-area shows this summer with dates at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre (taping the Beginnings podcast), The Music Frees All Festival (with Antibalas, Prince Paul and others), The Summersplash Concert Cruise (with Los Amigos Invisibles) and more. See below for a full list of dates.
Additionally, Rubinos will appear at Housing Works Bookstore for a panel discussion celebrating the careers of four powerful female artists writing, recording and performing live music in the fields of hip-hop, musical theater, electropop, rock and R&B. Panelists include YouTube rap diva AWKWAFINA, multi-platinum recording artist WYNTER GORDON, outré cabaret and theater sensation ERIN MARKEY. Media critic Elisabeth Vincentelli will moderate.
Featuring ten aggressively danceable, original tracks, along with two re-workings of Latin American children's songs, Magic Trix recalls the spirit and whacked-out mentality found in the best moments of Rip, Rig and Panic, DNA and The Contortions and others, while simultaneously exploring Rubinos' Cuban, Puerto Rican and American musical roots.
