*** A DCist «THIS WEEK IN JAZZ» EVENT! ***
*** A Fuzzy Logic «THE WEEK IN SHOWS» EVENT! ***
*** A DC ROCKS FEATURED EVENT! ***
On SAT 8/19, BOSSA presents an intimate evening of shimmering avant-psychedelia from the nation's capital, featuring an extended set by maximum minimalists BOAT BURNING plus a rare set by JAU OCEAN, the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Rick Irby (Paperhaus, Den-Mate, Wanted Man) with Davey Hoen on keys and Adam Orlando on drums.
It's late summer — Join us, as we gather friends, collaborators and co-conspirators to savor one of the last of the season's hot and hazy nights in BOSSA's impossibly romantic upstairs venue, in DC's historic Adams Morgan.
Early show: Music starts 8pm, ends 10:30 sharp.
We've so got this. Come.
— BOAT BURNING (DC)
...A psychedelic math-rock collective that brings together some of the city’s most talented musicians for an impressive, orchestral-esque performance.” --DC MUSIC DOWNLOAD
Melding elements of classical music and punk, Boat Burning is an experimental rock collective that explores «maximum minimalism,» an intricate hybrid of composition and improvisation for massed-electric guitars where simple passages played by multiple instruments --sometimes 70 or more-- produce shimmering towers of densely-stacked harmonics. The result is majestic, evocative music combining the wide-screen sweep of classical with the sheer physical thrall of punk rock.
Boat Burning's debut ep, produced by Mission of Burma's Roger Miller and recorded by legendary Dischord Records engineer Don Zientara, is now being readied for release.
Boat Burning's core ensemble includes guitarists
Andras Fekete (Triangle Rhysing: Music for Massed Guitars), Geordie Grindle (The Teen Idles, TONE), Jonathan Matis (DC Improvisers Collective (DCIC)) and Norm Veenstra (TONE); guitarist / keyboardist Robin Diamond (The Probes); and Mark Sherman on drums and percussion.
— JAU OCEAN (DC)
"...Sometimes you’ve just got to chill out. Grab a beer, roll a joint, light a cigarette… moments like this demand a soundtrack, and Jau Ocean’s debut album, Icecream Daydream, will do just fine." --CITYPAPER
The solo project of Paperhaus' Rick Irby (also Den-Mate, Wanted Man), JAU OCEAN features a morphing constellation of collaborators including (in this incarnation) DC music scene veteran Davey Hoen (FeelFree) on keys.
JO's debut release ICECREAM DAYDREAM reveals a laid-back, near-hynotic ambience with neo-jazz flourishes, chill but always warm and inviting.
