We aesthetes in the NoC Music Department get a number of emails from acts local and regional, advertising upcoming gigs at area venues. And we do our best to help the cause by mentioning them in the calendar and perhaps running a picture. Never, however, do we simply reproduce in print the contents of the emails we receive.
This is the opening paragraph of the long, far-reaching email we received from Peter J Woods and Bryce Beverlin II:
“Over the course of the first two weeks in August (with one extra day from July thrown in for good measure), Milwaukee’s Peter J Woods and Minneapolis’ Bryce Beverlin II are hitting the road and doubling down in each city. With pedigrees in multiple fields, both artists decided it was time to spread out and occupy a little wider space. At almost each stop, the artists will be performing two nights in a row: one where both artists perform solo noise/avant-garde music pieces, and the other being a combined theatre show and physics lecture.”
And that’s different, isn’t it? The physics bit? With the theater? On consecutive nights, noise and physics? Yeah?
There’s no punchline to this bit, sorry to say. It just is.
Woods and Beverlin play noise at Collexion (109 E. Loudon) on Sunday, August 7, and give us something like edutainment the following night, August 8.
