BRANDT BRAUER FRICK

For Brandt Brauer Frick, the drums, strings, and pianos that have long been the bedrock of Western music serve as the common thread between the classical past and the techno present. While devoted to the rich tones and timbres of orchestral instrumentation, the German trio's rousing tracks are rhythmically focused and rendered with the mechanical precision of four-to-the-floor club tracks. Brandt Brauer Frick majestically transcends audience expectations in their clockwork-esque attention to musical subtleties.

TINARIWEN

Named "Best African Band" by Rolling Stone, Tinariwen was formed in 1979 by group members from Tessalit, an oasis in the Sahara Desert in northern Mali. The group, whose name translates to "deserts," draws their style of music from rock as well as African and Middle Eastern music mixing acoustic and electric guitars, electric bass, drums, and gnarled picking patterns from West African lutes. The melodies are as straightforward as folk tunes that tug against harmonies in ways that reflect Tinariwen's nomadic lifestyle.

SPECIAL GUESTS: Sophie Hunger and DUBLAB DJS: Nanny Cantaloupe & Sun Araw with a visual art presentation by Vince McKelvie.
