Lockdown 3 / Grex LP Release for Milford Graves, ACLU

1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hello, all-

Sorry for the tragically long thread title - this is Karl / ep1str0phy.

In summary, my avant duo Grex is hosting Lockdown 3, a livestream music festival commemorating the release of our new record. The festival itself has a crackling bill, featuring the great DC bassist Luke Stewart, Asian Improv aRts co-founder/personal hero Francis Wong, Jordan Glenn (of Fred Frith Trio fame), the great young poet Tongo Eisen-Martin, and a really eclectic mix of cutting-edge Bay Area improv, beat music, rock, and so on. 

Our music has a theme of protest baked into it, meant to address inequitable living conditions in Oakland and the Philippines. In light of recent events, we thought it appropriate to put the music to some practical use. All proceeds from the sale of our record, and all donations collected at this festival, will be directed to the ACLU and to support the continued work of percussionist, educator, and researcher Milford Graves (ailing, as of late).

Lockdown Festival 3 / Saturday, September 5, 4-9pm PT

If you're interested in tuning in, the event is entirely on Youtube, but we're collating details + streaming links here: https://www.facebook.com/events/645326159422827

And for the righteous anti-FB crowd, here's a direct link to Grex's set, which will be updated with streaming links to the other sets: https://youtu.be/eKsjAPImWcM

Finally: here's the Bandcamp page for the new record. All sales here for the foreseeable future (including limited t-shirt sales) will be directed to the aforementioned causes: https://grex.bandcamp.com/album/everything-you-said-was-wrong 

All the best to you all.
