Event Details

TICKETS:  $10

An evening of borderless, virtuosic shapeshifting, globally informed, and spirits summoning Texas music. Ak’Chamel are coming from Houston with their post-colonial, post-apocalyptic, desert-scorched psychedelia. DFW dwellers, Trio Du Sang, will set the space with their luminous urban fusion as modern folk.

 

AK’CHAMEL

Honed and expanded through their travels, their singular sound comprising desert-scorched psychedelia, post- apocalyptic shamanism, and melancholic ritual folk is as unique as the physical theater of their otherworldly live performances. This cabalistic duo plays some high level fuckery and a fitting soundtrack to the desertification of our world.

“There is something shimmering, cold, gentleness and tender in their craft. It feels like a collection of secrets, a rich meditation on the many shades of the current state of the world” Idioteq Mag

“A phantasmagorical crossing of neolithic psychedelia, spiritual folk, hypnotic raga-rock riffs and primal ethno moods” Perkele

“A bizarre and enigmatic oeuvre that affirms once again that Ak’Chamel are one of the most consistently fascinating and creative bands in the psych scene right now” Brainwashed

 

TRIO DU SANG

Bobby Fajardo (Latin and Middle Eastern percussion instruments), Andrew May (electric 5-string violin), and Gregg Prickett (electrified classical guitar). Drawing upon their overlapping backgrounds in rock, jazz, classical, avant-garde, and folk traditions from around the globe.

Fajardo has played every style of music in every venue imaginable, from local heavy metal acts, to recording with the likes of Pharrell Williams and Kenny Loggins. Bobby has also performed with many ensembles, including the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra (FL), Dallas Flamenco Festival, the Waco Symphony Orchestra, the Miami Symphony Orchestra, Henry Mancini Orchestra and the Texas Music Festival Orchestra.

Andrew fulfilled his destiny as an avant-garde composer and violinist, with graduate degrees from CalArts and UC San Diego. He eventually found work at the University of North Texas as a teacher, composer, and computer musician.

Gregg is one of the most consistently creative guitarists in North Texas. A Dallas native, he has played with jazz combos, rock and country groups of all kinds throughout the area. Leader of the Monks of Saturnalia, a jazz group playing a cutting-edge style that took influence from post-bop, free jazz, rock, and a lush, Mingus-inspired sense of harmony. He was a member of Unconscious Collective, a jazz-rock crossover incorporating aspects of psychedelia, experimentation, free improvisation, body art, theater and ritual. In addition he delved into the outer sonic reaches with metroplex luminary Sarah Ruth Alexander in They Say The Wind Made Them Crazy, and he was also a member of the last line-up of Ronald Shannon Jackson’s pioneering jazz/funk/punk crossover group The Decoding Society.
