Avant-garde composer Meredith Monk has more upcoming performances of Cellular Songs, “the newest in a series of music theater pieces created by Meredith Monk that explore our interdependent relationship with nature while seeking to evoke the ineffable.” (NY Times caught the premiere of the show at BAM and called it “the cumulative force of some of her best writing.”) She’s doing two three-night runs of the show in October, one at Minneapolis’ Walker Art Center and one at NYC’s Le Poisson Rouge. Full schedule and more info here.
Deerhunter have a handful of live dates coming up, including a free show at House of Vans Brooklyn with newly-added openers Circuit des Yeux and Standing on the Corner, which RSVP just opened up for today. All dates here.
Still riding high off this year’s great Punken, Houston rapper Maxo Kream expanded his tour, adding a late-night Brooklyn show happening the same day he plays Warm Up.
