Northside Festival has ended

Mucca Pazza

Given that they describe their 30-piece ensemble as a “circus punk marching band,” its safe to say that’s there’s no other act in world quite like Mucca Pazza! Started in Chicago in 2004, they use their sprawling instrumental lineup (including sousaphones! Accordions! Cheerleaders! Speaker helmets!) to tackle a wide range of styles from punk to Balkan brass to classic TV themes. At Northside they’ll also be performing material from their brand new record, Safety Fifth.
