Alan Bishop (Sun City Girls) will play solo in NYC in just a few short weeks, bringing his Alvarius B alias to Union Pool on September 4. Support will come from Marcia Bassett and Samara Lubelski, and tickets are on sale. The show goes down just a couple days before he is set to bless the Hopscotch Festival in North Carolina.
In related news, Sir Richard Bishop (also of Sun City Girls) has returned to the studio with Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance) and Chris Corsano as Rangda. The band played NYC earlier this year and has a second LP prepping for take-off, Formerly Extinct, due via Drag City on September 18. Stream "Rajnun" from it below.
