Hey wcbn fans,
I’m sure you all remember last fall’s His Name is Alive show and last winter’s concert with Rachel’s; now the WCBN Concert Series at the University of Michigan Museum of Art is back!
Next Sunday, November 13th, Ann Arbor avant-toy virtuoso Frank Pahl’s new band Little Bang Theory will be playing a free concert in the art museum’s atrium!
Frank Pahl is the creator of a funhouse filled with musical wonders. Automatic instruments-music boxes, noisemaking toys, old bits of amplification equipment, sewing-machine parts, and other marvelous motorized cast-offs of various kinds-creak along and come together in uniquely charming conjunctions. On this surface, Pahl and his group Little Bang Theory (with choreographer Terri Sarris and Doug Shimmin of the Immigrant Sons) trace outlines of half-forgotten songs, weave minimalist textures, and dredge up unpredictable bits and pieces of half a dozen other kinds of music, using a melodica, xylophones, ukuleles, zithers, a cowbell, and unclassifiable homemade sounds. The superior acoustic environment of the University of Michigan Museum of Art offers an ideal place to experience Frank Pahl’s quiet, magical musical universe.
Local fingerstyle guitar master Nick Schillace will open the night’s performance
In Summary: Sunday November 13th, 8pm at the University of Michigan Museum of Art (525 S. State St)
