Howl! Happening is pleased to present an evening of songs that bring together two legendary downtown creators, Eszter Balint and Stew. A wistful travelogue through the winsome past of Eszter Balint, I Hate Memory stars the streets of New York City and co-stars the 20th century. It also features appearances by joy, lies, crime, family, bellowing, sadness, imagination, bodegas, amnesia, fame, immigration, creativity, shame (that most loyal of friends!), shaking rhythms, B&W zombies, Mrs. Hot Stuff, and more.

Eszter sings and plays guitar and violin, while Stew does the quieter singing and plays guitar, with Vincent Sperrazza on drums and Kato Hideki on bass.

Eszter Balint is a singer-songwriter with three critically-acclaimed solo albums. She grew up as a member of the legendary avant-garde theater company Squat Theatre. She’s had featured roles in films by Jim Jarmusch, Woody Allen, and Steve Buscemi—including a role alongside David Bowie—and has recently starred in a six-episode arc in Season 4 of Louis CK’s TV show Louie. Jon Pareles of The New York Times has said of her work: “Miss Balint has her own film noir sensibility as a songwriter. She slips inside her characters to project their restlessness and longing.”

Singer-songwriter Stew is a founding member of the band The Negro Problem, and a Tony and Obie award-winning playwright and composer (Passing Strange).
