Ferrocene3 meets Tree Thump at IMC Saturday

From a press release:

The UC-Independent Media Center is hosting the bands Ferrocene3 and Tree Thump. The performance will take place on Saturday, Nov. 21st; it starts at 8 p.m., admission $6.

Rooted in Urbana Champaign’s improvised music community is Ferrocene3, an ambient, avant world ensemble featuring Jason Finkelman exploring his use of laptop electronics and percussion combined with Jay Eychaner’s signature blend of textured electronic murmur and fastidious approach to tone. For this IMC performance, Johnny Ride, a sound shifting electric guitarist who applies extended techniques with preparations and a variety of pedals, will sit in for regular ensemble guitarist Nick Rudd.

Tree Thump is a Fithian, Ill.-based band performing didjeridu driven music with a penetrating, psychedelic vibe and funky drum and bass grooves, topped off with sweet and fiery explorations on the electric violin, accented with percussive mayhem.

Sources indicate that this performance is also BYOB for those 21+ with ID, so please take that into account.
