Early show... it really starts at 8pm.

The Low End String Quartet rocks. They are a re-imagining of the classical model. The instrumentation differs, adding a bass, dropping a violin, and swapping a guitar where the viola should be. All instruments are amplified. This "new and improved" string quartet lineup is much better suited to alternative venues than the classical model, and is better equipped for rumbling your ribcage.

The Low End String Quartet's style lies squarely at the intersection of the post-classical, avant-jazz, and post-rock worlds. The group's members have played in rock bands, jazz groups, classical and new music ensembles. This wide range of experience allows them to draw on the best practices of each: the visceral excitement of rock, the spontaneous creativity of jazz, and the rigor of the post-classical tradition.
