Joey Molinaro and Valerie Kuehne assault and seduce their violin and cello/voice alongside Amy X Neuberg (SF) and Hazel Ra (brooklyn) and Jane Gabriels (Montreal) and Vaudeville Park’s founder Ian M. Colletti, this Friday, June 15th. Doors at 7:30, music til 11. Vaudeville Park – 26 Bushwick ave. A fantastical array of unique performers are involved.
NYC-based composer, violinist, and fiddler Joey Molinaro first gained attention as a member of the seven-piece experimental chamber-grind outfit “Basilica.” As an acoustic or electric solo artist, he conjures a torrent of riffs over a two-boot foot percussion flurry. The set includes seventeen Discordance-Axis-inspired songs and several new pieces with vocals. http://www.joeymolinaro.com/
Valerie Kuehne is an electrically charged virtuoso of all purpose cello. Dynamic performer, fearless improviser, songwriter, vocalist, and classically trained connoisseur of Bach and Britten, Valerie can be found playing incessant shows in NYC, where she devotes formidable heart, intellect, creativity, and time to cross-pollinating sundry genres. Armed with finesse, Valerie is impressively present on stage, rendering poignant punctuations of changeable emotional weather. In any setting, her instrument aches with human implications and fiendish alien fuel.
