FOUR BANDS, THREE VIDEO ARTISTS, AN AERIALIST, AND A DJ.

Saturday, November 26 at BSW:

— MAN FOREVER
Man Forever is a side-project of Kid Millions, who plays drums in Oneida. Never are two performances the same. And nay, barely ever will you see the same ensemble embodied as Man Forever. It is music prepared specially for each event. There will be surprise collaborators.

Here is an example:

—- GUARDIAN ALIEN
Guardian Alien is one of the most exciting bands in New York right now. They play improvised music in the key of B-flat. Audiences are consistently stunned. Spontaneous lyrics over amazing, relentless drumming and fully sonic soloing and riffing. You have to see it to know. They will be joined by BAMiAM.tv for some live video jamming on the magical visual keytar.

Here’s a video of Guardian Alien playing in a radio station:

—- A MAGIC WHISTLE
A magic whistle is the underwater inner-space expedition of multi-instrumentalist and home studio acrobat Andy Magicwhistle. Taking a sizely departure from his most well-known collaboration – the prog-cartoon-freakout duo Neon Hunk (Load Records) – A Magic Whistle travels freely through musical ages and spaces, times, and places.
In it we hear the echoes of eastern folk music, 60’s Moog records, and the innocent spirit of baroque beauty. The holy alloy for this space-submarine is an underlying signature that is living, growing, personal, entirely sincere, and unmistakably original.

This performance will involve Andy preforming live music along with video that he created. Here is one of his older music videos, a simple one:

MANY MANSIONS plus SPECIAL SURPRISE AERIALIST
I saw Many Mansions one time. There’s a lot of people in the band. They played a psychedelic dancy-trancy jam for 45 minutes that had me mesmerized. They grabbed the moment and held on to it for everybody in the room to soak in for a while. This is their return-from-tour show.

Video of a Many Mansions set in a basement in Northampton, Massachusetts.
Tune in around minute 9 for a nice moment:

PLUS:
Video screenings by Eyebodega.com and Sara Shapouri.
DJ Crown Vic of Electric Cowbell Records
