Unsane

Unsane

November 28 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

New York City’s Unsane assisted in pioneering a more aggressive, less studied version of noise rock, one that blended the scum/art industrial sturm und drang of Foetus, the Swans, Einsturzende Neubauten, and Sonic Youth with a decidedly more straightforward hardcore idiom. The band is bringing their hammering, power-press rhythms, searing Telecaster howls, and distorted vocals that resembled a chainsaw cutting a steel beam to the Club Congress stage and we can't wait! Supporting them are Plaque Marks from Philadelphia and Sorxe from Phoenix.

29

Flobots

Flobots

November 29 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Flobots, the alt hip hop duo that brought you the instant-hit "Handlebars" back in 2008, are a band of musicians, time travellers, and speech language mythologists seeking to uncover treasures hidden within songs. They are taking these sentiments on the road with Bang Data, a Latin-infused hip hop group from the Bay Area.

ChamberLab Vexations Marathon

ChamberLab Vexations Marathon

December 2 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 pm

Vexations is a piece of music written by French composer Erik Satie in 1893. It's only about a minute long, but Satie left a note at the top of the page suggesting that the piece should be played eight-hundred and forty times in a row. That's exactly what ChamberLab, Tucson's only alternative chamber musicians, intend to do. Perform the piece, sponsor a musician to benefit the ACLU, or come watch all of some of the show -- this will certainly be a performance to remember!
