oso, Zs and Flockterkit
Location: The Renaissance Society
The evening's bill begins with oso, an eclectic trio headed by singer/songwriter Phil Taylor, known for his unique guitar work and quirky arrangements, which have been referred to as post-glitch folk art and organic traveling music.
The Zs (Sam Hillmer, Alex Mincek, Charlie Looker, Mathew Hough, Brad Wentworth, Ian Antonio) are a double trio--two saxophones, two guitars, two drummers--from New York. Working between the worlds of avant rock and new music, the Zs often explore the extremes of compositional complexity and virtuosity as well as extended repetition.
