Here’s where I encourage all new music enthusiasts to come down to the World Financial Center tomorrow, May 31st, for the Bang on a Can marathon. Among the opening acts will be Dither shown below playing at the New Music Bakesale and Andy Akiho who I saw perform at the beginning of the month at the Manhattan School of Music. I thought I had shots of Terry Riley performing with the Bang on a Can Allstars but I can’t find them. Here’s a handy YouTube library of many of the acts performing.
This is R. Stevie Moore performing in Brooklyn.
He won’t be performing at the marathon but he should be.
And finally, a still life from the movie, Still Life by Jia Zhangke — could be my brain on new music.
