The Fifth Annual Transatlantic Brawl for Art: Edo, Cobra Fantastic & Thomas Anonymous

August 3 at 8:00 pm-11:00 pm



Welcome to the 5th Annual Transatlantic Brawl for Art! 

Philly’s EDO and Paris France’s Cobra Fantastic with Thomas Anonymous



Formed either in Albany NY in the summer of 1988 or Annapolis, MD in the spring of 1987 (accounts vary), EDO has racked up a reasonably bizarre resume:House band at Albany’s Legendary Palais Royale, Sponsored by Bud Dry in 1991 – 1994, live on PRISM in 1997, house band at Deleo’s, the legendary and now defunct RoxYunk dive bar, Favorites at the late lamented Grape, emeritus act at the final cataclysmic Pi Lam Human BBQ. 

EDO is as likely to iron meat on stage as it they aer to sing you sweet and sleep all the way back home. They will rock your world and fumble with your emotions! They will feed you medicine for breakfast!

For what it’s worth, these guys have been playing together for almost forty years, a combined band total of 210 EDO years! We just can’t stop!

Come see EDO and smell the weirdness. You won’t be sorry you did. We won’t either.

Cobra Fantastic

The band of intrepid funkateers known as Cobra Fantastic is a veritable super group of the Parisian jazz scene, under the fearless leadership of guitarist/singer/songwriter/arranger David Garlitz. Travelling the galaxy in a mothership fueled by the music of Frank Zappa, Sun Ra, Steely Dan, and Parliament Funkadelic, Cobra Fantastic offers us a trip outside of the same old linear space-time, where everything is on The One, but The One ain’t where you thought it was gonna be…

Half comic book, half Space Opera, Cobra Fantastic’s first full-length album Edifice Wrecks follows a warrior priestess, her rogue soldier and former lover, a 40-story monster robot, a dental-floss farmer, the galaxy’s fastest starfighter, and a guitar with a mind of its own as they struggle to maintain the balance of the Funkabopulation in the universe. It’s Heart of Darkness meets Mars Attacks, spoken in the language of jazz and funk, and carried along by the baddest grooves this side of Zargon VII.

When his travels bring him to Philadelphia, Garlitz teams up with long-time co-conspirators Lucas Brown (organ) on organ and Doug Hirlinger (drums) to bring the funkabopulation to the people. Don’t forget your sunglasses.
