I haven't seen this mentioned in the new music blogosphere yet (perhaps everyone else found out about it aeons ago) but on Sunday, June 4, there's a Bang on a Can Marathon at the World Financial Center -- part of this year's River to River festival.
The lineup is pretty sick -- after the customary Frightening of the Children at 11:30 AM, things kick off in earnest at 1 PM with Anthony Braxton's Composition #19 for 100 tubas -- or rather, 4 groups of 25 tubas. Marching.
After that, we get:
Alarm Will Sound (doing their Aphex Twin covers and hopefully some other stuff too... ?)
Bang on a Can All-Stars
Don Byron Dominic Frasca
Gamelan Galak Tika
Glenn Kotche (yes, that Glen Kotche)
Kyaw Kyaw Naing(maybe not... ?)
William Parker with Jerome Cooper
Performing music by:
Paolo Coggiola (no web presence... boo)
Filippo Del Corno
Dewa Ketut Alit
Glenn Kotche and David Cossin
Kyaw Kyaw Naing (?)
All gloriously free. It'll be like Dave Chapelle's Block Party, for new music nerds. Without the, um, block. Anyway, I'm so there.
