Eric Barber’s MetriLodic + Bad Luck
THE CHAPEL PERFORMANCE SPACE
Good Shepherd Center (Wallingford), 4649 Sunnyside Ave N
8:00 PM; $5 – $15 sliding scale suggested donation at the door (cash/checks only).
Eric Barber’s MetriLodic is an all-original, freely improvised trio that breaks most of the rules of groove-based ensembles. Featuring Eric Barber on sax and electronics, this band creates a sonic palette that is simultaneously complex and entertaining. With longtime collaborators PK on electric bass and Byron Vannoy on drums, this band take rhythm, meter, groove, and melody in a new direction.
Bad Luck is a sonic outlet to be reckoned with. Over half a decade after their first performance, drummer Chris Icasiano and saxophonist Neil Welch continue to develop a unique musical voice together. In the highly trodden medium of drums and saxophone, Bad Luck proves that there is much left to be said. Performing all original compositions, the pair use live loops and pedals to create an astounding range of sound, quickly shifting into fierce improvisations, sound art, and carefully constructed harmonic palettes.
