Brooklyn’s twisted love-rock band Dan and Rachel is bringing a new show to Europe.

Their new EP “Dragon Me Down” features songs inspired by books. Dan and Rachel are members of the Bushwick Book Club, a monthly gathering of NYC musicians who read a book and then create and perform art it inspires. The book club is in it’s fifth year and Dan and Rachel will perform several of their literary creations at the following venues in Italy:

  • Feb 18 – Varese IT – Twiggy
  • Feb 26 – Lecce IT – TBA

Dan and Rachel is a married band with a wild song collection that ranges from loud dance beats to soft folk tunes. Their live performances run the gamut of human
emotion, with songs about food, love, Dostoyevsky, zombies and dogshit. Audiences are quick to join in the chorus of “their classic rapid-fire history of the banana.” (American Songwriter). They have performed at Webster Hall (NYC), The Reeperbahn Festival (HAMBURG) and in 22 countries around the world. Dan Costello is also a solo artist with six albums including two for children.

Rachel and Dan live and grow food in Brooklyn.

Dan and Rachel’s previous releases include “Damn Monsters!”, a synth-based art-rock album, and “Plus One”, a rock ’n roll mix-tape which was released on cassette.

Having sold hundreds of these albums on tours across the US, Canada and Europe, they are now available in digital format and in limited supply on CD at concerts.
