The 2016 Ecstatic Festival, which pairs rock/pop with composers and experimental musicians, just got underway with a 1/29 kickoff event at The Greene Space (featuring a Man Forever / Tigue collaboration) before settling in to its usual home of Merkin Concert Hall on Thursday (2/4) for a collaborative performance by skilled MC Pharoahe Monch and the PitchBlak Brass Band. The show featured new arrangements of songs from his deeply personal 2014 album PTSD: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which incorporated a string section as well. The setlist and more pics from the show are below.

Up next for the Ecstatic Music Festival is the Bang on a Can People’s Commissioning Fund Concert on Saturday (4/6) at Merkin Concert Hall, featuring the Bang on a Can All-Stars performing world premieres of new works by Caroline Shaw, Gabriella Smith, Zhang Shouwang & René Lussier, plus Julia Wolfe’s Pulitzer Prize-winning / Grammy-nominated “Anthracite Fields.” Tickets are on sale. If you can’t make it to the show, the performance will be streamed live on Q2 Music at 7:30 PM EST.
