"What do you get when you take one very influential German band, about 60 people, three amps, half a drum set, two Fender guitars, a small accordion, an upright vacuum, a ukulele, trumpets, trombones, a full size synthesizer, tambourines and chairs? It's not the easiest thing to put your finger on, but the Faust workshop [the other] night at the International House wasn't your average musical performance" [Phrequency]Faust performed twice in Philly this week. The second show was a standard performance, like what they did last night at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. The first was one of their workshops. That's where the set of pictures in this post were taken. Pics from the Brooklyn show are coming soon. All Faust dates HERE.
The Brooklyn show was also the first night of the three-day WFMU festival that continues tonight (10/2) with Pissed Jeans, TV Ghost, VeeDee, and Guinea Worms. Saturday is Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, Sightings, Drunkdriver, and Talk Normal.
