EMPAC has show lined up for Friday night that looks interesting/fun/different/definitely not boring -- Skeletons, Luciano Chessa and Dan Deacon. To wit:
+ Pitchfork called Skeltons' 2007 album Luca "an outsize global-a-go-go mélange of unceasing polyrhythms, Afrobeat guitars, free jazz, and Timbaland's approach to kitchen-sink percussion."
+ Pianist Luciano Chessa is a professor who studies 20th-century music, experimental music, late 14th-century music and Italian hip-hop. He also apparently will be playing a composition for piano and stuffed animals.
Dan Deacon is more like a ringleader than your typical rock star. He's also unassuming. Deacon, a 27 year-old musician from Baltimore, is balding and heavyset with nerdy glasses held together with tape and a goofy smile. But he managed to turn the 9:30 Club audience into a complete circus, transforming the audience into wildly frenetic participants more ably than any other artist I've seen.
The show starts Friday at 8 pm in EMPAC's concert hall. Tickets are $15.
