Roulette Presents: Mary Halvorson & Brandon Seabrook
Oct 11, 2013 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm| $20
Brooklyn, NY: Roulette, celebrating 35 years of new and adventurous performance, is excited to present an evening with Mary Halvorson & Brandon Seabrook. The meeting these two guitarists is an intense and high-energy affair filled with noise and beautiful melodies, tech-metallic squealching converging with post mettaloid Gretsch shredding and a flurry of post plectrum electric exactitude.
Guitarist/composer Mary Halvorson has been called “NYC’s least-predictable improviser” (Howard Mandel, City Arts), “the most forward-thinking guitarist working right now” (Lars Gotrich, NPR.org) and “one of today’s most formidable bandleaders” (Francis Davis, Village Voice). In addition to her longstanding trio, featuring bassist John Hébert and drummer Ches Smith, and her quintet and septet, Ms. Halvorson also co-leads a chamber-jazz duo with violist Jessica Pavone, the avant-rock band People and the collective ensembles Thumbscrew, Reverse Blue and Secret Keeper.
