Elysium Furnace Works is proud to present as part of its live music series in Beacon, NY the Mike Pride 3. With a resume that spans everyone from Anthony Braxton to hardcore punk legends MDC — as well as having performed before hundreds of thousands across the country opening for Amy Schumer as a member of Locksmith Isidore — drummer/composer Mike Pride leads a fearless, peerless trio whose own past experience ranges from everyone from Lou Reed to John Zorn to Wilco, among countless others, and features Jon Irabagon on saxophones and Fred Lonberg-Holm on cello. The Mike Pride 3 will perform on Saturday, July 28 at 8 PM at the Howland Cultural Center, located at 477 Main Street in Beacon, NY. Advance tickets will be $15 and $20 at the door the night of the concert — advance tickets are on sale at https://mikepride.brownpapertickets.com.

September 22 — Kris Davis: Winner of the Rising Star Pianist award in Downbeat Magazine’s 2017 critics poll, the phenomenally talented keyboardist and composer Davis makes her debut in Beacon for this highly-anticipated solo performance.

October 20 — Atonal Hits: This accomplished duo — pianist Illya Filshtinskiy and violinist Katha Zinn— has performed around the world many times, from Asia to Turkey to Carnegie Hall. As suggested by their humorous name, Atonal Hits specializes in performing not only the most challenging works by some of the most forward-thinking classical composers of the last century, but also such timeless masterpieces as in their recent project recording the complete sonatas for violin and harpsichord of J.S. Bach.
