4 Nights of Kneebody

We’re doing it again because we enjoy repetitive fun. This year the festivities happen at at Littlefield, an awesome club in Gowanus, Brooklyn. As with prior years, each night will feature two sets, one set of Kneebody classic, and one with special guests. This year we have some great guest vocalists, splitting the nights up in some really cool ways. The breakdown:
April 11th - 9pm start time The Music of Tom Ze + Guests: Mark Guiliana , Gretchen Parlato and more TBA
April 12th - 9pm start time The Music of Judee Sill, Guest vocalist : A mystery for now until a high profile show for him is passed, but he’s a past collaborator of the band.
April 13th -7:30pm start time, EARLY The Music of Louis Cole and Genevieve Artadi
April 14th - 7:30pm start time, EARLY Supremely Special secret guest
TEAM KNEE IN ACTION
The Kneebody saxophonist has proven his chops in myriad local gigs during the past few years. And while hearing him play in a trio setting is a joy, the midsize ensemble from the new Frame really gives you insight into his artistic innards. Architecture is key; the keyboard-centric tunes have an arranger’s touch, and buoyancy is everywhere. This music bubbles over.
