Cuneiform Records celebrating 30 years tonight in Brooklyn w/ Curtis Hasselbring, Microscopic Septet & Ideal Bread
Founded in 1984 and based in Washington DC [Silver Spring, MD], Cuneiform Records is one of the longest-running and largest independent record labels in North America, dedicated to releasing high-quality recordings by some of the world's best and most adventurous musicians, and distributing and promoting these releases worldwide. The label focuses on cutting-edge music regardless of genre: the progressive frontier of myriad musics, from avant jazz to noise/electronica, classical minimalism to experimental rock, and especially music that transcends, redefines, and goes "beyond" traditional genres.
Cuneiform Records is 30 this year and will be celebrating in NYC tonight (10/22) at Shapeshifter Lab in Gowanus (18 Whitwell Pl) with three of its artists: The Microscopic Septet, Curtis Hasselbring's newest project Number Stations, and Ideal Bread. Tickets are on sale and you can stream tracks from all the artists playing tonight below.
Other Cuneiform-related shows coming up include The Cellar and Point at the closing Glasslands on 11/19, and the Anthony Pirog Trio at IBeam on 12/12. More dates in many cities around the world at Cuneiform's site.
