COTFG: Thinking Plague with Stop Motion Orchestra, Kraken Quartet, and Wank Tribe
Thinking Plague venture in adventurous, challenging, sometimes knotty musical directions similar in many ways to the multi-genre explorations of European Rock in Opposition bands of the '70s. Based in Denver, Colorado, the band has been active since 1982, have released seven critically acclaimed studio albums between 1984 and 2015, and toured nationally and internationally. This is their first performance in Austin and first ever Texas tour.
Wank Tribe (led by Peter Stopschinski) are primitive rock futurists who have developed a way to turn texts into non-judgemental instrumental graphic notation. Not the music of fantasy and ether, this is the music of reality and the rugged surface of the earth. Wank Tribe currently performs excerpts from the Kama Sutra, speeches of Martin Luther King Jr., and trending topics from today's headlines.
In the gallery, Kraken Quartet (Chris Demetriou, Andrew Dobos, Taylor Eddinger, Sean Harvey) will also play a short set of their own pieces and pieces by Thinking Plague drummer, Robin Chestnut
Stop Motion Orchestra will perform a set of original music including some new songs. Stop Motion Orchestra is an Austin, TX based instrumental art rock group utilizing saxophone, violin, guitar, synth, cello, drums.
