Fri. June 16, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Driftwood Orchestra is interested in creating a way to communicate with the forest, to give a voice to the trees – all that they have survived to grow and exist and all that has happened to a piece of wood before it became an object in the orchestra. Uneasy Chairs is improvising guitarist Patrick Neill Gundran, who is joined tonight by trumpeter Greg Kelley and found-object percussionist Eveline Müller

Goldenrod + God & Vanilla +
Sacred Signs

God and Vanilla, the ethereal dark ambient project of solo guitarist Richard O’Leary, creates lush tapestries and hauntingly inviting dreamscapes. Goldenrod is Noisegasm guitarist Greg Weber’s solo project, heavily influenced by Eno’s ambient work with nods to Henry Cow, Pere Ubu and Charles Wuorinen. Sacred Signs is a revolving cast of angels, demons, gods, ghosts, apparitions, and psychedelic piano duelers revolving around Winter Parkin.
