October 12 at the Uptown: Oakland Active Orchestra + Henry Grimes + Weiner Kids

We were also joined by legendary bassist Henry Grimes on this night!

It’s been a full calendar year of monthly performances by the Oakland Active Orchestra! Come help us celebrate with two sets – the first by Jordan Glenn’s infamous Weiner Kids, and the second set comprising of 12 mini compositions by many of the members of the Oakland Active Orchestra including Aram Shelton / Aaron Bennett / Rob Ewing / Kristian Aspelin / Lisa Mezzacappa / Hillary Overberg / Agnes Szelag / Sam Ospovat / Jordan Glenn / Kjell Nordeson / Cory Wright / Erik Jekabson

Opening set by Wiener Kids (Jordan Glenn / Cory Wright / Aram Shelton)

Brainchild of drummer/composer Jordan Glenn, Wiener Kids is inspired by small dogs, old bikes, muppets, cheap Halloween decorations, babies with glasses and other wiener kids. It’s fast and slow, loud and soft. It draws as much from Jan Svankmajer and Hans Bellmer as Peewee Herman and Jim Hensen. It’s music made by ex/current weaklings for everyone!
