Quintron has also has his Weather Warlock show happening. Friday (11/28) afternoon at Secret Project Robot at 3 PM. For this show, Weather Warlock — his “heavy drone band which uses sun, wind, rain and temperature to control a monster analog synth designed by Quintronics” — will have an all-star cast including guitarist Nels Cline, drummer Sean Lennon, drummer Steve Shelley, baritone saxist Paula Henderson, and alto saxist Luke Stewart. Updated dates and a video of Weather Warlock at Gonerfest, below.
