BOAT BURNING (DC)

Melding elements of classical music and punk, Boat Burning is an experimental rock collective that explores “maximum minimalism,” an intricate hybrid of composition and improvisation for massed-electric guitars where simple passages played by multiple instruments –sometimes 70 or more– produce shimmering towers of densely-stacked harmonics. The result is majestic, evocative music combining the wide-screen sweep of classical with the sheer physical thrall of punk rock.

Boat Burning’s core ensemble includes guitarists
Andras Fekete (Triangle Rhysing: Music for Massed Guitars), Geordie Grindle (The Teen Idles, TONE), Jonathan Matis (DC Improvisers Collective (DCIC)) and Norm Veenstra (TONE); guitarist / keyboardist Robin Diamond (The Probes); and Mark Sherman on drums and percussion.


JAU OCEAN (DC)

The solo project of Paperhaus’ Rick Irby (also Den-Mate, Wanted Man), JAU OCEAN features a morphing constellation of collaborators including (in this incarnation) DC music scene veteran Davey Hoen (FeelFree) on keys.

JO’s debut release ICECREAM DAYDREAM reveals a laid-back, near-hynotic ambience with neo-jazz flourishes, chill but always warm and inviting.
