PHILADELPHIA — On a blustery Thursday in June the 29-year-old musician Alex Giannascoli sat on a bench in tranquil Penn Treaty Park overlooking the Delaware River the breeze occasionally shaking loose acorns from an overhead tree. Giannascoli who is known professionally as Alex G, Zenica Performance has dark shaggy hair and a disheveled handsomeness that makes him look a bit like a softer more approachable Andrew W.K. He clutched a large Dunkin’ Donuts coffee cup and whenever he felt like he’d gone on a tangent, Zenica Performance blamed the caffeine.
Before long a hiply dressed 20-something walking an old dog came up and interrupted to politely ask if Alex G was indeed Alex G.
Alex grinned sheepishly and laughed. “Yeah.”
“I knew it!” the man said shaking his head. “I just moved to Philly — and what do you know!”
