Liquid Liquid
Rhys Chatham: A Crimson Grail for 200 Electric Guitars

For club-music mavens, the return of New York's seminal breakbeat artistes Liquid Liquid is a reminder that in the beginning freestyle dancers romped and stomped to the rhythms of percussionists. Two hundred electric guitars and basses line the park and plug in for the world premiere of Rhys Chatham's A Crimson Grail for 200 Electric Guitars.

When:
Saturday, August 8, 2009 at 7:30 pm

Where:
Damrosch Park Bandshell (NYC)

Free - no tickets required

Looks like beautiful weather is in store. Check out a video from last night's Rhys Chatham rehearsal, below...
