Rabbit Rabbit Radio is the duo of Carla Kihlstedt (voice/violin) and Matthias Bossi (drums, piano/keyboard, voice). (You might remember Carla from her luminous Hop-commissioned composition Understory, premiered last spring by the Brooklyn Youth Chorus in the Hood Museum of Art's Russo Atrium!) Rendered on a motley assortment of instruments both old and new, Rabbit Rabbit Radio's songs draw on the couple's shared love of art and folk songs, industrial and improvised music, and heart-wrenching balladry. They drop a new song on the first day of every month to their subscribers at RabbitRabbitRadio.Bandcamp.com

In this, their first ever live-streamed concert, Carla and Matthias will play a few of their old favorites, and a couple of songs too new still to have names. They may even tap you for spontaneous lyric suggestions. (What else is a chat window good for?!)
