Land of Tomorrow and WRFL are pleased to present, as part of the Boomslang Festival, performances by Oneohtrix Point Never and XAMBUCA. The show is scheduled for Friday, September 21st at 11pm following Deerhoof’s performance at Cosmic Charlie’s.
Oneohtrix Point Never is the recording name of Brooklyn-based experimental musician Daniel Lopatin. Lopatin’s music is composed and performed primarily on vintage synthesizers, and has been described as drone or ambient music, gentle eddies of sound, and like a cracked mirror refracting the sounds of the past.
XAMBUCA is an ongoing multimedia collective which has had help from several trusted authorities along with the video and audio expertise of Jason Scott Furr and the visuals of Megan McKissack. The crew has been seen if not heard sonically feeding the beast known as XAMBUCA. XAMBUCA is not limited to any particular style or category of music and would like to establish that it not be limited to the confines of musical categorization.
