DOWNLOAD: Anni Rossi - Ecology (MP3)

Anni Rossi

Tiny Mix Tapes: Any favorite experience [at SXSW], your own sets or someone else's?

Anni Rossi: Well, there's an artist whose out on Rough Trade right now called Micachu and the Shapes. Her and I played this show together, which was pretty notable for my set too; it was on this patio at this placed called Ms. B's. Her and I played back to back one day, and her live show is awesome. We actually played with her in New York, too.

TMT: How have your influences changed or matured, specifically in classical, on strings...?

AR: Um, well, I've always loved pop music more than classical music, from when I was little. But I think that's natural. I mean, that transitional point when I really started writing music and transitioning out of classical music was when I was playing chamber music, like quartet music. I really liked Bartók and more contemporary composers. Then I discovered Laurie Anderson and Meredith Monk -- that was maybe like 5 years ago. My musical taste now has really ranged from somebody like Modest Mouse -- I really like their recordings -- and, like, Black Sabbath I've been really into lately. I generally go through phases where I'll listen to one thing over and over.

Anni Rossi plays a one-off show tonight (6/23) on the main stage at Pianos weekly Cross-Pollination series. Joining Rossi will be Pearl & the Beards and Ezra Furman & the Harpoons (who have a residency at the venue). Tickets for tonight are on sale.

The show comes in midst of Rossi's tour with Camera Obscura. As part of that, both acts will play Webster Hall on Wednesday, June 24th. Tickets are still on sale. In March, Anni opened for Camera Obscura at the much smaller Mercury Lounge.

Anni will join Micachu on some of her July tour dates leading up to Micachu's appearance at the Siren Festival in Brooklyn. Maybe Anni will add another NYC show around then too.

Anni Rossi's second LP, Rockwell, came out in March on 4AD. In April she played "West Coast" off that record live at Permanent Records in Brooklyn. The video, with all tour dates, below...

BV, I don't think this info is correct. Anni Rossi and Pearl and the Beard (one beard) are playing Pianos, but I'm pretty sure it's free. Don't know what the deal with Furman is, but I don't think he's involved.

showroom $10. Anni Rossi- her set plays around 9pm. non-showroom Free. Check Piano's website.

I don't think Pianos ever has free shows unless its the upstairs.

Unless something has changed and they got new mananagemnt.

The upstairs is free, but then they would need to play acoustic.

Anni is fantastic and I'm excited for tomorrow's show at Webster with Camera Obscura. I'm really hoping for big things to happen with her...

She's really good. Caught her with Micachu at Death by Audio and I was very impressed. Plus she covers the cure.

Cross-Pollination is always free, even when it's Main Stage. The Pianos website has gotten this wrong before, I think this is probably another mistake

Pianos has had plenty of free shows in the main room, a lot of them on Sunday nights. I saw Sharon Van Etten there free a year or so ago.

Her performance was good in support of Noah and the Whale at Bowery Ballroom back on May 1st. Certainly very creative.

Show is $10 - she is supporting Ezra Furman and the Harpoons. Same show. It's not free, and any listings that say so are mistaken.

Anybody know what time the sets are tonight?
