Please forgive this late notice, but we are in fact hosting the 23rd installment of Resonant Interval this Sunday at our new space, The Exoskeleton. As The Husk is now on its way to becoming another boba tea shop, the propietors of Khon’s Bar have generously allowed us to decamp to an unused Cricket Wireless space in the Mekong Center, which we have elected to call The Exoskeleton (surely to the delight of entymologists everywhere). Same time (7:45 pm), same price ($5), same place (2808 Milam).
This week we welcome back two veterans of our series–Paul Connolly and Ryan Edwards. Paul will be joined by violist Aaron Bielish to realize a piece inspired by the David Cronenberg auto/erotic film “Crash”, while Ryan will be performing a solo set for guitar and voice. Please join us for our inaugural show in our new home this evening.
On a side note, due to the impending move of Resonant Interval CEO, HR assistant manager and sanitation engineering foreman Lance Higdon to Atlanta, Georgia, Resonant Interval will be concluding our season at the end of July. If you have ever desired to perform or contribute in some creative way to our series, please contact us with proposals for execution in the next 3 months.
In the event that we have rain this evening, Khon’s is graciously opening The Husk one more time for the concert to continue. Also, there will be a very substantial crawfish boil taking place that afternoon, to which everyone is invited.
So, rain or shine, we will see you at the Conference Call concert tonight at 8 pm. See incredible Loftward Bucolica poster below for more details.
That’s right, Resonant Interval junkies, we’re moving proceedings onto the rooftop parking lot of Khon’s for this show. German/American quartet Conference Call will come calling this Sunday, on tour across the US in support of their recent album “What About The…..?”, recorded live in Krakow, Poland. They are an incredible group, rooted in jazz but supremely comfortable and confident in all the nuances of the last sixty years of “free” music. Here is footage of a recent performance in New Haven, Connecticut. Add the image of the Houston skyline and you’ve got a good idea of Sunday’s show.
There’s been quite a few things afoot here at Resonant Interval headquarters–interstate job interviews looming, apartment-cleaning, ferreting out every last underground music lover in our fair city to keep this thing going strong. Please forgive our last-minute post calling attention to this week’s bill. In deference to the immanent threat of nervous breakdown, we will simply quote Space City Rock’s assessment of this week’s performers, Melanie Jamison & The Great Travis Kerschen:
…[T]he original guest for tonight, The Drink Up, Honey, couldn’t make it, so instead the show’ll feature Melanie Jamison, an H-town expat dwelling in NYC ’til recently. Here’s the official word on what she’s like:
Melanie is a recent returnee from New York City, where she studied interdisciplinary artforms (including compositions lessons with minimalist scion La Monte Young). She is currently pursuing graduate work in art in Houston & collaborating with a number of artists across several disciplines. We will be performing some electroacoustic pieces this weekend, accompanied by video art by Aisen Chacin.
Also playing is The Great Travis Kerschen, the latest project of local noise/experimental maven Travis Kerschen (duh), known for both the stellar A Thousand Cranes and the new-ish (but promising) Fiskadoro. I dunno quite what it’s going to be like, but I hear it’s more noise-y than his other stuff. Which, um, is a little interesting, since the other stuff is pretty noise-y in itself…
Many thanks to Jeremy Hart for the write-up. In the meantime, we hope to see you this evening at 7:45 pm at Khon’s. Still unsure if the show will occur in The Husk or the unused Cricket space, but either way, the show shall go on.
