PERFORMANCE AT SAN FRANCISCO'S HARDLY STRICTLY BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL
MARKS LIVE DEBUT
THE UNITED STATES
Mike Patton (Faith No More,
Peeping Tom, et al) brings his
orchestral Italian language project Mondo Cane to U.S. shores for the first time on Oct. 3, with a performance at San
Francisco's Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival.
Patton released the self-titled Mondo Cane debut in May on his own Ipecac Recordings but unveiled the live
incarnation years earlier through a series of European recitals. Videos from the overseas concerts have racked up
hundreds of thousands of views with music fans outside of the EU eager to get a glimpse of Patton performing
standards including "Scalinatella" and "Il Cielo In Una Stanza" as well as lesser known gems like the late '60s Italian
civil rights opus "Urlo Negro."
