A Classic Education @ Pianos - BV-CMJ 2009
A Classic Education

In that post about all the Scandinavian bands hitting town this weekend I mentioned that Italy's A Classic Education will be playing with Casiokids, Spleen United and Banjo or Freakout at Pianos on Saturday night. They'll also play Bruar Falls on Sunday (3/14) with onetime Lucksmith Darren Hanlon (who's opening for Magnetic Fields at Town Hall tonight [3/11]); and then on Monday (3/15) at Cameo Gallery with Irish shoegazers Butterfly Explosion, Florida's Million Young, Philadelphia's Golden Ages and Brooklyn band Starring.

They're stopping in NYC to play some shows before, you guessed it, heading to Austin for SXSW. Their official showcase is Thursday, March 18 at Friends with Surf City, the Kissaway Trail and others.

To my ears, ACE sound somewhere between Built to Spill and Fanfarlo -- orchestral but never too grandiose or precious. SPIN picked them as one of the "50 Must-Hear Bands at SXSW" and you may have seen them when they played one of the Brooklyn Vegan day parties during last year's CMJ. You can download the band's most recent single, "What My Life Could Have Been," at the top of this post.

When not fronting A Classic Education, Canadian-born singer Jonathan Clancy records under the name His Clancyness which is more in the hissy, cassette loving world of Woodsist/Underwater Peoples/Captured Tracks. For those heading to Austin, he'll be doing one solo show during SXSW on Friday (3/19) at the Shake Some Action! party at the Karibu Etheopian Restaurant. For more info on the three-day unofficial event, check out the details at Weekly Tape Deck. It's a pretty killer lineup all around.

The Bologna tour is something to look forward to. The video in this post is a completely different thing though. I can't quite figure out the message it is conveying but with SXSW who can?

Posted by Fran Colt | April 18, 2010 6:56 PM

I love the songs! Glad to see that they've got something lined up near my place!

The 12th of May?! Cool! That's my birthday. I think it's a great idea to invite my friends to the concert. And it would be a desired present for me to listen to my favourite groups..

When not fronting A Classic Education, Canadian-born singer Jonathan Clancy records under the name His Clancyness - I've heard of this but not of the main band. Think I'll check out the downloads to sample the band.

Classic music and education is at the heart of all music. I love classic music and continue to learn about it. We should all embrace it a little more. Its where all music nowadays came from.

Its a cool article to read by any common man. I found myself in the place of the traveller. Here lies the real worth and beauty of the article. The article had clearly demarcated the facts that are really true. The article clearly provides a beautiful notes on variety species of plants and trees that have been found in the forest like area and in the surface like this. This brings out the true picture of a human being in the writer of such articles.

I am sure that Jamming with them seems to be a lot of fund and that is why right now I am already planning to at least have fun with them. What do you think?

Posted by industrial surplus | November 18, 2012 9:27 AM

A classical education, then, has two important aspects. It is language-focused. And it follows a specific three-part pattern: the mind must be first supplied with facts and images, then given the logical tools for organization of facts, and finally equipped to express conclusions. Thanks for sharing guys!.

Posted by Russian Shawls | November 19, 2012 1:20 AM

The world is full of knowledge, and finding the links between fields of study can be a mind-twisting task. A classical education meets this challenge by taking history as its organizing outline. Be back soon to see more from your site.

Posted by online pmp certification training | November 19, 2012 1:23 AM

I remember that classical education has three-part process of training the mind. And the early years of school are spent in absorbing facts, systematically laying the foundations for advanced study.

Thank you for giving me another point of view on this difficult situation. Now I can easily complete my article.
