Peter Cherches & Lee Feldman


Musical Performance & Reading

The Bowery Poetry Club
308 Bowery, New York, NY 10012

foot of First Street, between Houston & Bleecker
across the street from CBGB
(F train to Second Ave, or 6 train to Bleecker
Full bar & cafe!

Reunited and it feels so good (ugh!).

In the 1980s the team of Peter Cherches and Lee Feldman were favorites on the downtown performance scene, for their songs as well as their stories with soundtracks called "Movies for the Ears." Now, thanks to the miracle of nostalgia, Cherches and Feldman will be reunited for a performance at Bowery Poetry Club for the first time since downtown's golden age.

The event will be a veritable variety show. It will include readings by Cherches and musical performances by Cherches and Feldman.

Peter Cherches will read short fiction and present a staged reading of a series of minimalist plays in progress, "Trio Bagatelles" (assisted by Patti Bradshaw and Tom Ross). Lee Feldman will perform a group of his own songs, and the show will close with Cherches and Feldman performing their song collaborations as well as Cherches's lyrics for the music of Thelonious Monk.

Evoking platitudes from reviewers such as, "Harry Nilsson meets Fats Waller," and "Randy Newman by way of Lou Reed and Paul Simon," Lee Feldman is a singer, pianist and songwriter. His third album, "I've Forgotten Everything" is, according to Stereophile Magazine, "unlike anything else in contemporary pop." Lee is also the creator of STARBOY, an animated musical about a 2-dimensional superhero who lives with his uncle, a mathematician. He has performed at numerous NYC venues, including Joe's Pub, Fez, P.S. 1, The Knitting Factory and The Bottom Line, as well as on radio stations WNYC, WBAI, WFMU and WFUV (Vin Scelsa's Idiot's Delight).
