Grand Gesture - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Grand Gesture
Comprised of NYC scene vets from bands like Apothecary Hymns, Dots Confuse Minds, Ice Petal Flowers, and Court and Spark, Grand Gesture is a quartet that aims to bridge the rift between the worlds of fuzzed out indie and improvisational jam rock. The band emphasizes sophisticated song writing, seamlessly crossing genre boundaries, and interweaving a thread of catchiness. With their debut full length in March 2017, Grand Gesture brings an album that captivates listeners with instrumental prowess, clever wit, and powerful lyrical themes. And if that doesn’t get your attention, there is a note for note rendition of “I Can’t Explain” by the Who and the crunchiest arrangement of a Kraftwerk song ever attempted.
David Jacobson & the Space Wizards - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
David Jacobson & the Space Wizards
David Jacobson is a magician of sorts. Not the kind who uses parlour tricks, or rabbits in a hat, but the sort that can show you the limits of your own imagination. The sort that can point to the unseen, and reveal its secrets. The sort who seems to have stumbled upon deep insight into himself, the human experience, and the potential of the human mind.
