Music curated by Ron Anderson
Bassoon, SARCAUSTIC, Elevator Rose, Blipvert
Bassoon – Stuart Popejoy (bass, keyboards) Sean Moran (guitar) John Mettam (drums)
Bassoon is an instrumental metal trio. “Bassoon occasionally avails itself of sheet music onstage, but don’t let that give you the wrong idea. The power trio is one of Brooklyn’s heaviest and most challenging, bringing to mind a mixture of Melvins-style avant-sludge and daredevil ’70s fusion.” Time Out New York
SARCAUSTIC – Ron Anderson (guitar) Tim Dahl (bass) Weasel Walter (drums)
Just one rule prevails: The music has to be it direct, to the point, powerful, with no sentimental bullshit.
Elevator Rose – Performing “Worker’s Union” by Louis Andriessen
Vasu Panicker (synth) Fred Trumpy (drumset) Joe Fee (electric bass) Ela Polak (violin) Adam Forman (mallets) with guests from Luke Schwartz (guitar), Paul Pinto (piano), Jeff Young (violin) Pat Muchmore (Cello) Joe Tucker (percussion)
