THE PROGRESSIVE ERA

by

Get between the ears of Daniel Lanois during Antithesis, a genre-eliding evening curated by the artist-producer. Consisting of four complete sets, Antithesis is reminiscent of rock impresario Bill Graham’s legendary and adventurous all-night Fillmore bills. Lanois will perform his new Flesh and Machine, a transposition of the recording studio to the stage involving hard and soft electronics accompanied sometimes by live drumming. The Antlers will represent Lanois’s mellow side with drifting, melancholic numbers from their recent Familiar. Wrapped in robes and headscarves, Tuareg tribesmen Tinariwen bring the bluesy nomadic sounds of their West African desert homeland. And Alabama artist Lonnie Holley has translated his practice of “improvisational creativity” from found plastic art to the audio realm on 2013’s Just Before Music, an album of droning metaphysical meditations.
