Grex (Oak) w/Swollen Brain, Happy House, Shawn Baltazor/Adam Topel
Sunday, December 17th, 2017
A fresh, feverish evening of big sounds and experimental songs, featuring the poignant, powerful incantations of Oakland art rock ensemble Grex. The group’s striking “two man band” configuration recalls a spectrum of daring rock duos ranging from The White Stripes to Skeleton Crew, showcasing a blustery mix of guitar and keys drawn from the outer reaches of free jazz. Also featured: LA drum/guitar duo Swollen Brain (Nick Reinhart/Eric Gardner), Stephen Buono’s Happy House, and the exciting dual drum sounds of Shawn Baltazor and Adam Topel.
