September’s installment of the Telemetry Concert Series at The Bridge PAI features:
Between them, Devon Sproule and Paul Curreri have made 16 albums and 1 kid. Both toured internationally for a billion years and got to meet loads of famous people, little of which has proven the least bit helpful toward assembling a swing set in their backyard. For the moment, Devon’s traveling shoes are happily in storage, opting instead to hang with their daughter and teach songwriting / guitar. Paul, formerly a guitarist’s guitarist, is these days relegated to synthesizers due to hand issues. He also quit drinking after his hands went wonky and rarely leaves the house, especially since he cut his hair. Extremely rare opportunity to see them in the same place without their daughter.
Angela On The Arts plays freely improvised music. The band includes John D’earth on Trumpet, flugelhorn and percussion, Bonnie Gordon on viola and Michelle Oliva on Bass clarinet and loops. Their jazz-and-chamber-music-inflected sound vibrates with a sonic archive early jazz, Miles Davis, Eric Dolphy, Ornette Coleman, early modern modal music, Arnold Schoenberg, John Cage, rock & roll, Charles Ives. The band explores improvisation as a musical practice, and a way to move through the world. They have performed at a number of Charlottesville venues and last summer played at Bruce Hornsby’s Funhouse music festival. They enjoy busking on the down town mall in the summer and will release their first album this fall.
K.I.A.S. (Keep it a Stack) is a female rapper/singer located in the Charlottesville area and is a member of the UVa Raplab.
