WCDB Presents: Disappears, Lotus Plaza & Location Ensemble
WCDB and Albany Sonic Arts Collective have put together an awesome show Wednesday, April 18th at Valentines Music Hall. Disappears, which features Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth and Brian Case of the Ponys; Lotus Plaza, which features Lockett Pundt of Deerhunter and as an fyi, their new album got rated as ‘Best New Music‘ by Pitchfork. Location Ensemble is a “motley 9-piece guitar ensemble whose membership reads like a who’s who of experimental Albany-area musicians. It currently includes Thomas Lail and Patrick Weklar from soundBarn, Tape Drift owner Eric Hardiman, Ray Hare from Century Plants, other Albany Sonic Arts Collective regulars Holland Hopson (also a UAlbany Music Dept Professor) and Matt Weston, an Albany rock club (Valentine’s) owner Howard Glassman, Tara Fracalossi, and Jason Martin.” (Quote lifted from their Self-Titled Album review on Upstate Soundscape.
