White Out
New York’s pioneer experimental project White Out combusted onto the scene in the fall of 1995. The highly charged freakout style of White Out’s early live shows quickly established the band’s reputation.The band’s open-ended invitation to other like-minded innovators to join them in their sonic conspiracy has sired an eclectic mix of collaborators. In recent years they have enjoyed playing regularly with maestro renaissance man Jim O’Rourke, with whom they have recorded two albums to date. Other comrades in instrumental arms have included Thurston Moore, Mike Watt, Nels Cline, MV CARBON and Okkyung Lee. White Out has put out two critically acclaimed recordings on Moore’s Ecstatic Peace label.White Out remains steadfast in its efforts to achieve an incendiary new music, whose time has come. Don’t try this at home.http://www.whiteoutinc.com/

In The Ozone (Tom Bruno/Anders Nilson/Matthew Heyner)
In The Ozone:
the band that is deep in osmosis, in a turbo land that always can permutate and change. Tom Bruno is my favorite drummer, a mentor and friend. here he plays with his most recent collaborators Anders Nilson on guitar, and Matthew Heyner on electric bass. A power trio supreme. A rare glimpse, don’t miss it.

Fred Moore/Matt Mottel/Danny Moore/Brian Osborne Quartet
A quartet of independent minded improvisers who have style and cache to raise the stakes. This band manages to sweep hard with synthesizer resonance, buzzing guitar and distorted clarinet, sonic plucking of tiny instruments, and spot on percussion chatter. Members of Hat City Intuitive/Heaven Peope/Blastocyst/Talibam!
