Ghost ValentineGhost Valentine

As previously noted, Grouper returns to NYC this weekend. Catch the show tonight (2/13) at the New Museum with High Places. Or opt for "An Evening of Sensual Machine Music" at Le Poisson Rouge on Saturday.

Wordless Music and Ghostly International co-curate a special Valentine's Day dinner concert, with music from four corners of the ambient/experimental music world. Including live sets from The Sight Below and Lusine (Ghostly/SMM), Grouper (Type Records), and pianist Michael Brofman, who will perform solo piano works by the early-20th-century inventor of ambient music, Erik Satie. Seating is extremely limited and will include a three-course pre-fixe menu by Le Poisson Rouge's celebrated house chef Idelfonso "Pons" Cordero.
