November 12th: Murder Murder + The Scope + Jordan Glenn

Active Music Series at the Uptown November 12

Active Music Series presents Murder Murder + The Scope + Jordan Glenn

The Scope (Matt Ingalls – clarinet & violin, Thomas Dimuzio – guitar, and Thomas Scandura – drums) is a convenient travel-sized Bay Area trio with a minty fresh burning sensation. With germ-killing ACTIVE INGREDIENTS free improv, noise, and rock, the band’s refreshing dual-blast ultra-sonic malodorous sound lasts 5 times longer than brushing alone. Rinse, spit, and repeat.

Murder Murder is a Bay Area-based organ of chaos and entropy led for over a decade in a de facto manner by Paul Costuros (Death Sentence: Panda!/Total Shutdown/XBXRX) and generally featuring a bevy of unhinged freakazoids culled from the creme of the SF/Oakland art-punk-spuzz-weirdo-rock-free-jazz-noise scene including Weasel Walter, John Dwyer, Greg Saunier from Deerhoof, Mochipet, John Weise, Ches Smith, and C. Spencer Yeh, as well as members of Child Abuse, XBXRX, Burmese, Comets On Fire, T.I.T.S, Sic Alps, Erase Errata, and The Hospitals. The actual music is a matter of perspective: some might call it “fake jazz”, some might tag it “noise”, some see it as “performance art”, some might call it “bullshit on a stick”, but, call it whatever you will: Murder Murder is really an ongoing attempt at gleeful, reckless spontaneity within the underground scene.

Jordan Glenn will perform etudes and improvisations for the drum set. In addition to drums and cymbals, the traditional pallet will be extended with small percussion, a mix of odd and conventional. http://www.jordanglennmusic.com
