    Ever since his days as the mastermind behind critically-acclaimed avant-boho outfit Dufus, Seth Faergolzia has blazed colorful trails into modes of expression one couldn’t have foreseen even as Dufus were being hailed as “freak folk” innovators. When Faergolzia first emerged out of lower Manhattan at the turn of the millennium, he cut quite the figure as a trailblazing artist committed to pursuing his vision on the fringe of the fringes, quickly distinguishing himself as a visionary with an entertainer’s flair and a penchant for bending minds. Naturally, the surface absurdism of his output drew comparisons to likeminded iconoclasts like Captain Beefheart, Zappa, Ween, and Mr. Bungle. But, Faergolzia has come to represent a genre unto himself, the labyrinthine pathways of his inspiration delighting audiences and collaborators alike. In his new live show, taking the stage as a one-man tornado of sound, Faergolzia draws from new material, electronic samples, loops, improvisations, and choice selections from the Dufus vault — a full and varied cross-section of the matchless oddball muse that has delighted audiences, collaborators, and critics alike for over a decade. “Frantic fever-dream folk slashed through with rock stabs.” – The Onion “As giddy and inventive as it is pissed off, it’s the 21st-century equivalent of the Fugs at their finest.” – Village Voice “I have never heard anything like this before or since.” – Pop Matters
