Important Events

Get out your Google calendar, because there's some Important Events coming up (or recently passed).

Moving in reverse:

Steve Reich's Pulitzer prize-winning Double Sextet and equally badass 2x5 dropped last week. Whether it got The Prize as an acknowledgment of his life's work or not, it's badass music played beautifully by eight blackbird and Bang on a Can
Go and buy this!

and moving forward:

Alex Ross's new book, Listen to This comes out September 28th 2010.
Buy this, too!

And tomorrow, Monday September 20th, is the first IHearIC show of the season. Some important details about it have been made fuzzy, so I'll try to make it right here.
The show begins at 9PM.
Admission will cost $5. This is a laughably low price to see six groups play in the beautiful intimacy of the Englert Theatre, but for some reason people wanna get they music for free. Don't let that $$ price turn you away! It's good to pay money for music.
The shows have been free in the past and I'm hustling to get them to be free again, but for now, it's 5 bones. Do know them dollars will be going (a lot of it) to the musicians you're watching, and (a little bit of it) to the theatre what has so generously offered to house this show. If I'm harping about this it's only because I heard some grumbling and realized that I too would grumble about something previously free becoming not. Why buy a cow when you used to get the milk for free?..?

You need to see the show tomorrow night. With all different types of songs dangling in the sexiest environment, IHearIC + the Englert = the most exciting show in town. And then immediately after, it's a show at the Warehouse feat. Wet Hair, Grass Widow & Golden Dust, which will be--for the time slot--the most exciting show in town. Look out, Monday night!
