The Barby Club will host one of the leading indie acts on the New York scene on Wednesday when Cheval Sombre takes the stage. The group is essentially a one-person band with New York based poet and musician Christopher Porpora.
The band, it must be said, has an intriguing name, which means “somber horse” in French.
“The name came to me at a crucial moment, and I am very grateful,” he recalls. “I think most of the first album was finished, and there was some pressure building about what to call it.”
