Che - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
A lifelong multi-instrumentalist, Che has lived long periods of his life in Ireland, Philadelphia and the Bay Area, where he currently resides. Influenced by his natural and urban environments, his father’s Guatemalan family tradition of composers and professional musicians, and his mother’s Native American culture, Che builds with old, new, and future musical languages informed by a heritage of jazz, latin and classical. With a sensibility for concrète-style sampling and analog sound sculpting techniques, Che manipulates recordings of acoustic instruments and synthesizers, traversing melodic ambient and kinetic waves imprinted with unpredictable beat formulas. The result is lush, layered, and likely to surprise. His new album 'Shuco' is due out 4/13 via Astro Nautico.
Pulgas - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Pulgas is undeniable garbage wizardry. Their music sounds like it was recorded in a trashcan with a modified trash-mic by trash people, but that belies the boundless creativity and musicianship contained within. Guitar record of the year? If you smoke trash, DEFINITELY. Hot licks galore, meaty beats and hooks that wouldn’t sound out of place in 1974 Philly soul. (More accurately, a soul hopped up on huffed fumes from that undeniable summer Philadelphia stench. Nacho cheese and boiled hotel washcloths, folks. You know what I mean.) It’s not easily classifiable, but it fucking rules.
Madam Data - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Madam Data
Madam Data [a. adhiyatma] is a clarinetist, electronic composer, computer theorist and improviser. They are currently based in Philadelphia but long for the sunny shores and ambiguous morals of their homeland, Singapore. They are interested in General Tso’s Chicken, deliberate misuse of the words “quantum gravity”, and the mind-shredding psychedelia of interface design.
