The Warhol began the Sound Series in 2004 as a consistent and ongoing concert series featuring a broad range of artists and bands that increasingly blur genres and sensibilities of contemporary independent music, with performances taking place in a variety of venues, ranging from The Warhol theater, which offers an intimate performance experience with warm acoustics and strong sound clarity, to the Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland.
As part of the Sound Series events, The Warhol welcomes back experimental guitarists Sir Richard Bishop (Sun City Girls), and Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance), joined on this occasion with free jazz drummer Chris Corsano (Bjork), to comprise the avant-rock super group and power trio Rangda. Blending a range of influences and distinct styles, the group actually alternated between improvised and structured songs (odd and even numbered tracks) on its first record, False Flag. The group visits the museum on a tour supporting its third release on Drag City Records, The Heretic’s Bargain. Pittsburgh-based experimental guitarist/composer Dave Bernabo opens the show.
Sound Series: An Evening with Rangda and special guest Dave Bernabo will be held on Thursday, March 17 at 8:00 pm at The Andy Warhol Museum. Doors open at 7:00 pm.
