All-female chamber rock group Victoire performs music from their recently released debut album Cathedral City this Friday at AS220. The New York quintet serves up creepy atmospherics using electronics, keyboards, clarinet, double bass and violin.
The album features the group performing founder/composer/pianist Missy Mazzoli’s distinct blend of winds, strings, keyboards and lo-fi electronics, with guests including Bryce Dessner of The National, Florent Ghys, William Brittelle and Mellissa Hughes. Since forming in 2008, the group has shared stages with artists such as Tortoise, Bing and Ruth, Twi the Humble Feather, Redhooker, and more.
Also on the bill is the lovely never-boring Blevin Blectum who enfolds you in her multimedia, loosely narrative pieces with live interactive electronic sound, manipulated field recordings, film, action and costume. Just relax and surrender to it. Lord FM explores ethereal guitarscapes and electronic rumblings and made a name for himself as “a member of groundbreaking audiovisual horse [dear god, I love that horse] and laptop duo Lordshyp with that notorious Blevin Blectum, as well as freeform improvisatory rock’n’roll and eklectronica outfit Modest Machine. Ric Royer will frighten and confuse you with song and dance.
$6, 9pm, Friday, October 15, AS220, 115 Empire Street
