Ava Luna plays Serge Gainsbourg's Histoire De Melody Nelson

Joe's Pub

February 10

Doors at 9PM
Show at 9:30PM

New York art rock outfit Ava Luna has established itself as a commanding presence in the musical underground since their inception in 2010. Between three critically lauded albums and national/international tours, the quintet’s “hyperactive curiosity” (Pitchfork) has propelled them to reimagine a classic work in a contemporary context. Originally performed for Brooklyn's 2016 Northside Festival, and now being released as a full vinyl album, the band's take on Serge Gainsbourg's legendary Histoire De Melody Nelson functions as both tribute and critique. With their own Becca Kauffman --who apart from the group is known for her uncanny performance art persona, Jennifer Vanilla-- taking on the role of Serge, and eccentric NYC comedian Lorelei Ramirez as Melody, Ava Luna offers a dark, humorous, and thoughtful retelling of this classic and controversial album, whose themes of objectification and power are rendered newly relevant by our current moment.
