Serving the San Francisco Bay Area New Music Community

Fri, Jul 27 2018 7:30 PM

17th Annual Outsound New Music Summit
The Bay Area's Creative Music Festival
'Night of Stone' a night of exploratory rock and psychedelia with
Dire Wolves

"Since 2009, San Francisco’s Dire Wolves have put out something like ten full-lengths (including the wonderfully titled The Creator Has a Faster Van), two splits, contributed to a handful of comps, and have been the temporary shelter of twenty-something players. It will not surprise you to find out that they play a loose and perpetually evolving brand of music that is probably most easily classified as psych, but with its trilling woodwinds and droning violins has more in common with the spiritual jazz of Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders (dig that title once again) than the peaky wig-outs of, like, Iron Butterfly."

Sheila Bosco - drum kit, Brian Lucas - bass,

CDP (Census Designated Place) is a Bay Area avant-jazz/funk ensemble led by Amanda Chaudhary. They weave together the diverse strands of Mwandishi-era Herbie Hancock, Soft Machine Six and Seven, and Sun Ra’s late 1970s studio recordings. Live performances move effortlessly between snappy “jingles" and extended improvisations backed by tight, driving rhythms. As far out as it sometimes gets, CDP never loses the thread of the melody or the humor.
Amanda Chaudhary - keyboards/synth, Joshua Marshall - tenor saxophone, Tom Djll - trumpet/synth, Mark Pino -drums
