Upcoming Lost Civilizations Shows

On Thursday, September 18, we’re performing with Sansyou and ROM at Ebenezers Coffeehouse on Capitol Hill:

On September 18, 2014, ROM, Sansyou and the Lost Civilizations experimental music project will appear at Ebenezers Coffeehouse (http://ebenezerscoffeehouse.com/), which is located near Union Station on Capitol Hill at 201 F Street NE (http://goo.gl/RBzte1).

ROM
Rom (http://romdc.bandcamp.com/releases ; https://www.facebook.com/thisarerom) is:
Mark McInerney – vocals, guitar
Sean McCauley – bass
Mark Pry – drums

Sansyou
Sansyou (www.sansyoumusic.com): David Nicholas (guitar), Matthew McGarraghy (guitar) and Davis White (percussion) weave delicate melodies and ambiance with meditative rhythms to form the instrumental sound of Sansyou. The band’s most recent release, The Dilettante, on Moon Sounds Records unfolds “without vocal cues or overt verse-chorus structure, as they develop their runs of tiny guitar trills…shimmering, sensuous stuff”. –The Big Takeover. The recording was mixed and mastered by Jake Reid of Screen Vinyl Image. Like their 2011 debut, When We Become Ghosts, the new songs “…have a more understated elegance than traditional dream pop or post-rock. This is music for ears that appreciate thoughtful, layered sounds that unspool gently and gradually, and are rich with both melody and possibility.” – The Vinyl District

The Lost Civilizations experimental music project
“An otherworldly ambiance that’s impossible to describe; once heard, difficult to forget.‏” 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.

Tickets: $5
