Glenn Branca V2

No Longer Showing.

The Kitchen welcomes back Glenn Branca to The Kitchen after more than twenty years for the premiere of The Third Ascension, a new work for guitar, bass, and drums conducted by Branca. This piece is the latest development of Branca’s influential 1981 work The Ascension, in which he experiments with resonances generated by alternate tunings for multiple electric guitars. Reworked from a recent iteration as part of the Bang on a Can marathon, this performance features Reg Bloor and Arad Evans on guitar and Owen Weaver on drums. These shows will be recorded live for a subsequent album release.

Conductor: Glenn Branca
Guitars: Reg Bloor, Arad Evans, Brendon Randall-Myers, Luke Schwartz
Bass: Greg McMullen
Drums: Owen Weaver

February 23 at 7pm and 9pm, February 24 at 8pm
Tickets $20

Online tickets for this show are currently sold out. A waiting list for all shows will begin one hour before showtime, in person at the box office the night of the performance.
