For More Information:
Aaron Blount is a songwriter and founder of the widely regarded Austin band Knife in the Water. Raised and home schooled in rural central Texas in the 1980s, his songs bear the residual influence of Country and Gospel with a surreal literary bent. Finding the balance between crime-novel storytelling and epiphany under the influence, his music is kindred to Denis Johnson, the Dirty Three, Sam Peckinpah, and Narcocorrido. Knife in the Water have released 3 Lps to much acclaim and he has released one solo Ep. He is currently at work on a new album.
Dimestore Dance Trio is an ongoing conversation of composition and improvisation between guitarist Jack Martin and bassist Jude Webre, now with Eric Read on the drum kit. Their spirited blend of 1940s small-combo stratagems, post-bop stumbling struts, and ethereal flights pays homage to various forebears (Erik Satie, Django, Charlie Christian, Albert Ayler, the Lounge Lizards) by taking apart their harmolodic machines to make ready for re-assembly on any occasion.
East Bank Music is a regularly curated music series offered by the Church of the Ascension in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
The Church of the Ascension strives to be a place of engagement for the arts and all else that nurtures life, vibrancy, and justness. Under the Church’s generous auspices, East Bank Music aims to enrich the wider community of Greenpoint by representing the musical genres thriving in the neighborhood while offering a performance and rehearsal space for independent musical artists. The hope is to bring together members of the Church, Greenpoint residents, and audiences from across the city.
Sunday afternoon community concerts highlight mainstays of the classical repertoire, while weeknight concerts focus on experimental genres and new sounds from the contemporary folk, jazz, and classical worlds. A dedication to original composition and interpretation unites the wide array of performers presented as part of the series.
East Bank Music and the Church of the Ascension support local businesses, and all are welcome. All shows are $10 suggested donation.http://www.ascensionbrooklyn.org/arts/
