IRON DOG / THE SOUND BATS / THE REUBEN RADDING GROUP
Three trios, one night…Iron Dog, The Sound Bats, and The Reuben Radding Group have influences that reach from the far corners of the globe to the mysterious nether regions of the psyche. Filled with electronically manipulated organic sounds, bristly downtown punk-jazz, and traditional Balkan music – get ready for a cosmopolitan night of music that could only be Made In Brooklyn.
“Iron Dog creates sonic landscapes where hypnotic, minimalist structures erupt into frenetic, metallic onslaughts. Sarah Bernstein on processed violin and vocals/text; Stuart Popejoy on distorted bass guitar and synthesizer; Andrew Drury on drumset, textures and sounds.”
The Soundbats are a collaborative trio which blends punk, downtown improv, and progressive rock. Downtown hipsters, head-banging punk rockers, and carnies will all find something to smile about.
“Working as the Soundbats, saxist Briggan Krauss, guitarist Sean Moran and drummer John Mettam pump out thorny, rock-fueled downtown-style jazz in a Tim Berne vein.” – TimeOut New York
REUBEN RADDING GROUP
The Reuben Radding Group plays traditional Balkan and original compositions.
“Radding demonstrated a clear command of his instrument, veering with abandon between conventional pizzicato work and a post-free liberty-taking aided by bow, sticks, and hands. A muscly, mesomorph figure, Radding bullies, slaps, and worries his bass like a half-bothered, fully curious black bear mauling a backpacker.” –Peter Monahan, Earshot Jazz
