William Basinski / Blade Runner with Arto Lindsay @ Trans-Pecos 12/8/2015
“Just go for it,” I heard someone scream from the stage in between songs, and it’s a fitting motto to bring forth while recapping the show. For an hour, the band did just that: they went for it. Smiling like mad scientists, Arto Lindsay, Will Epstein, and Dave Harrington were having a blast as they scrambled the brains of a sold-out, Bushwick audience. Jaar was off in the corner, in his own little world as he brought forth his critically acclaimed skills on the keys and electronics. – [ Dub Era]
Nicolas Jaar‘s label Other People is currently in residence at experimental-friendly venue Trans-Pecos. The residency kicked off with a show on Thursday (12/8) with Okokon, ambient great William Basinski, and a live improv set from Bladerunner (Dave Harrington, Will Epstein, Tlacael Esparza, Samer Ghadry and Jaar) with Arto Lindsay joining them. Pictures of the show in this post.
The residency continues through Friday (12/11), with a three-hour Jaar DJ set tonight (12/9), Afrika Bambaataa and more on Thursday (12/10) and Teenage Jesus and the Jerks and more on Friday. Check out more pictures from Tuesday night’s show below.
