The Lost Civilizations Experimental Music Project and Others in DC This Weekend

On September 13, 2014, New York’s Little Band of Sailors, Baltimore’s Music Bones and DC’s Lost Civilizations experimental music project will inaugurate the Indie Adams Morgan series at Green Island, 2327 18th Street, NW, Washington, DC (http://greenislanddc.tumblr.com/; https://www.facebook.com/pages/Green-Island/682753568478878?sk=info). The performance begins at 8 pm and the cover is $5 (with free Eventbrite ticket; otherwise $10 at the door — Eventbrite Link: http://goo.gl/eYbzRm).

Liquid Light Projections will be by John Hallberg.

Little Band of Sailors (http://www.littlebandofsailors.com/) blend folk, prog, goth, and heavy metal. Think Jefferson Airplane meets Black Sabbath. Their live shows are often a costumed spectacle of energy and contagious delight.

Music Bones (http://musicbonesmusic.com/) is a band consisting of two human beings on a sonic adventure through space, time, blues, jazz, and rock music. Sara & Mike unofficially founded Music Bones when Sara responded to a craigslist post Mike made on July 4th, 2013. Since then, Mike and Sara have been writing and performing music together, drawing on their varied influences from the blues, jazz, and rock musical traditions. Mike plays guitar. Sara plays vox and drums. Friends fill in the rest.

The Lost Civilizations experimental music project (http://lost-civilizations.tumblr.com/) is a collaboration between Mike Sebastian (Tenor Sax, Saxello and Baritone Sax) and T. A. Zook (BassCello). Although it is essentially a duo and performs most frequently as such, it often features guest performers. When complex schedules permit, it now performs with Doug Kallmeyer on bass and electronics; Jerry Busher on percussion and electronics; Larry Gomez on percusson; Amanda Huron on percussion; Patrick Whitehead on horns and Emily Chimiak on vocals and violin. This project began performing in 2008.

At 11:30 AM Sunday morning, September 14, the Lost Civilizations experimental music project (http://lost-civilizations.tumblr.com/) will be performing in the Adams Morgan Day Festival (http://goo.gl/ar3qpK) at the Black Squirrel Rock Stage (http://www.blacksquirreldc.com/), located at 2427 18th Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20009, (202) 232-1011 (http://goo.gl/p7f8qO). Jerry Busher (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_Busher; Fugazi; Deathfix; Sunwolf) will be sitting in on drums.

The line-up for this 3-venue (Black Squirrel, Green Island and Libertine) festival is nothing short of amazing, so don’t just come for the Lost Civilizations experimental music project’s performance! The Black Squirrel Rock Stage is “all ages” and admission is free (although donations would be gratefully accepted!).
