Clogs and special guests
March 31st and April 1st (Fri and Sat)

Tickets $10
The New York-based quartet Clogs occupy the space between classical composition and avant-garde improvisation, while also drawing on folk, rock, and world musical styles. Their distinctive music eludes easy classification, though comparisons have been made to the sonic landscapes of artists as diverse as Erik Satie, Godspeed You Black Emperor!, and Miles Davis. The ensemble?s unusual instrumentation features Padma Newsome, the group?s primary composer, on strings and voice; Rachael Elliott on bassoon and recorder; Thomas Kozumplik on percussion and drums; and Bryce Dessner, who also plays in the popular rock band The National, on classical and electric guitars. Special guests include guitarist and acclaimed composer Shara Worden on March 31, and indie-folk singer Diane Cluck on April 1. The set installation is created by Karl Jensen.
