Daniel Kahn & The Painted Bird, aka the “radical Yiddish borderland bandits,” return to the road and are coming to Boston with their new record, “The Butcher’s Share.”

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; show at 7:30 p.m. Venue is wheelchair accessible. Parking is limited.

The Berlin-based, Detroit-born poet/translator/singer/multi-instrumentalist (accordion, piano, guitars) Daniel Kahn has reformed the band with new and old comrades: Berlin’s clarinet/sax/brass master Christian Dawid, New York’s Yiddish fiddle virtuoso Jake Shulman-Ment, expat experimental contrabassist and Berlin composer Michael Tuttle, and classic klezmer drummer Hampus Melin. The live show features projected translations and images by legendary New York underground artist Eric Drooker, whose work is woven into the album’s design, as well as material from the band’s new videos.

Daniel Kahn & The Painted Bird continue to masterfully navigate the dichotomy between revolution and alienation, the political and the poetic, the explosive and the corrosive. “The Butcher’s Share” is available on LP, CD and digital platforms from Oriente Musik.
