It’s a night of genre-bending, mind-melting improvised music on Thursday, May 19, when Rivener, Cretella|Paolucci Duo, and Id M Theft Able & Flandrew Fleisenberg play Best Video Performance Space. The show starts at 8 PM and the cover is $5.
Rivener is Michael Kiefer (Myty Konkeror/Twin Lakes Records) and Paul Belbusti (Mercy Choir/Dead Language Records). They’ve teamed up to create lysergic genre-bending improvisations that draw on a wide range influences, including, but never limited to, psych, no wave, noise, damaged blues, free-jazz, and rock.
Cretella|Paolucci Duo is Chris Cretella and Michael Paolucci of Dr. Caterwaul’s Cadre of Clairvoyant Claptraps exploring their experimental inclinations.
ID M THEFT ABLE (Portland, ME) and Flandrew Fleisenberg (Philadelphia, PA) are both players of unconventional objects in unconventional ways. Both strong soloists in their own accord, the duo provides both players with an opportunity to more fully explore interaction and invites experimentation and the unexpected.
