Get Weird: Fakey and Hex Message
Part of Get Weird
$8 Members, $10 General Admission

April's very special Get Weird welcomes two newly formed musical acts, both featuring gurus of the downtown art and music worlds.

Fakey is a power trio combining the musical stylings of Joe Williams of White Williams (electro dance jams for the people), Moses Archuleta of Deerhunter (ATL ambient punk), and Matthew Papich of Ecstatic Sunshine (good time guitars).

Hex Message takes listeners on a journey of sonic experimentation and positive juju, featuring Dan Hougland (of Excepter) on keyboards, gallerist Pascal Spengemann (of Taxter and Spengemann) on drums, Abigail Portner (of Rings) on keyboards, and artist Andrew Kuo on guitar.

Get Weird is a monthly series of performances featuring experimental and freaky jams. Expect anything from dusted-off salsa to psychedelic harmonies, performed by unknown legends and young-gun mavericks. Get Weird takes place on the third Thursday of each month. [the New Museum in NYC]
