Check out Conspiracy of Beards in NYC All Weekend Long!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Spring is almost sprung and it’s the weekend! Looking for something fresh to do? Check out Conspiracy of Beards all the way from San Fran!


Conspiracy of Beards is a San Francisco based a cappella choir of 30 men, performing dynamic, original arrangements of the poetic songs of Leonard Cohen in 4- and 5-part harmony. “This will be the choir’s 7th annual NYC tour and their 12th season performing both classic and more obscure Leonard Cohen songs.”

“Well dressed in suits, ties, and the occasional fedora, the choir brings an energized live choral music experience out of churches and tabernacles and into the taverns, art houses, and theaters of the West Coast and beyond. Transforming Cohen’s lyrics and simple melodies into complex 4- and 5-part harmonies, Conspiracy of Beards achieves a sound that is both robust and tender, exposing the emotion and comedy behind Cohen’s words. This is not a Leonard Cohen tribute choir, but a unique and powerful elaboration of Cohen’s lyrical and musical expression.”
