Our hearts go out to people in Chennai & Cuddalore, South India who are going through the aftermath of the worst flooding in the last 100 years. BC Grimm will perform a 15-20 min solo cello set including Bach & Indian Classical; dedicated in remembrance of the lives lost during the flooding. Exquisite music and dance acts on display -performed by artists from Madison and Milwaukee. This event is hosted by Saaz, Madison’s largest group of Indian musicians.

Australian percussionist Will Guthrie, now based in France, is currently on tour through the US! Luckily for us, he is stopping by Madison for a set this Wednesday @ Bright Red Studios!! His creations for percussion & electronics often lead with texture and are patiently thorough. Accompanying side effects of Will Guthrie’s playing may include deep trance-states. Please ask your doctor if Will Guthrie is right for you.
Brennan Connors & Miguel McQuade have been cooking up some secret jams and are now to unleash them upon us! As a bandmate of Brennan’s, I’m obviously a fan of his playing; but it’s always a special thing to hear an alter ego of a bandmate as they interact with different musicians. I greatly admire Miguel’s drum style and sensitivity. The last time I played with him, I had a neck ache for about 3 days! That’s how hard I was bopping to his grooves! Check out Miguel’s electronic music to get an idea of what I mean >>
I’ll be performing a new solo cello set as BC Grimm. This polyglotist acoustic collage will include varying styles: JS Bach, erhu Chinese fiddle tunes, a tickling of flamenco, original extended-technique pizzicato pieces, excerpts from original theater scores & experimental improvs.
