The visionary project of Brooklyn-based composer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ellis Ludwig-Leone, San Fermin has earned worldwide praise for its ingenious pairing of pop-minded melodies with lushly avant-garde arrangements. Formed in 2013 – shortly after Ludwig-Leone completed a job assisting composer Nico Muhly – San Fermin made their debut with a self-titled LP hailed by NPR as “one of the year’s most ambitious, evocative, and moving records.” Hailed by Rolling Stone for “(channeling) quarter-life existentialism through sophisticated wind and string compositions,” JACKRABBIT, the band’s sophomore outing, arrived in 2015, debuting at #8 on Billboard’s “Heatseekers” chart. BELONG followed two years later, earning applause from the likes of The Line of Best Fit as “an intricate, technically awe-inspiring LP with many narrow pathways to explore,” and The New Yorker, praising the album’s “lovely baroque arrangements, analog eclecticism, and lavish harmonies.”

 

Equally inventive on stage as in the studio, Ludwig-Leone and San Fermin have spent much of the band’s existence on the road, including sold out headline shows around the world, international festival sets, and tours supporting such like-minded artists as St. Vincent, The National, Arctic Monkeys, and alt-J.

 

“‘[Our new release] The Hunger’ is the result of a late-night discussion with a female friend about the difficulties of dating in the city,” says  Ludwig-Leone. “I think there’s something heroic in the process of getting your hopes up time and again, even in the face of constant disappointment…. Trying to project confidence while dealing with disappointment and insecurity is an experience I think a lot of people can relate to.”

These fees help to cover the cost of operating the theatre, as well as administrative and box office staffing, credit card fees charged by merchant services, ticketing software, 24/7 ordering via our website, postage, computer and telephone systems, utilities and supplies.

Refunds or exchanges are not permitted for any tickets purchased unless the show cancels. Please do not purchase a ticket unless you are sure that you can attend.  Members of the Capitol Center for the Arts may exchange tickets for credit toward future events.  Tickets must be presented to the box office during business hours at least 24 hours prior to the event.
