An evening of uncommon sounds from Maine visionaries, in an appropriately unusual setting along the banks of the Fore River.
Colby Nathan‘s performances are a grab-bag of uncommon possibilities, with a free-wheeling spontaneity spilling across noisy loops, introverted sing-song, suitcases of toys, and the occasional costume change. He’s a welcome addition in a world always in need of more honesty, a good jostling, or a healthy dose of pure eccentricity.
The Veazies are the far-out diva pop outfit of Janane Tripp (Visitations, 3D Jet Scooter) and Corey Jennings. Expect adventurous new directions in dance-floor sounds.
Tom Kovacevic is the oud and nay flute-playing Arabic-music cognoscente, whose dream-like dirges are crafted with an expressive subtlety that is rare to find. His 2014 debut on Immune Recordings (recorded by Big Blood’s Caleb Mulkerin) is one the truly essential and enigmatic records to come out of the state of Maine in the last decade.
