Event Description

Brown Bread & Von Holt (Rebecca Doerfer & Colin Cheyne) bounce from the city of NY to the city of Beacon. Through internet, wires, solitary train rides and bedrooms, Rebecca and Colin collaborate electronically, and through dreams to make electronic dream pop. 

Vacation is a duo from upstate, New York. One member’s name is wayne memmer. he sings, plays guitar, synth, and sometimes samples his own sounds from his own sampler. the other member’s name is rachel asher. she sings, plays violin, cello and guitar and then loops some of those sounds with loopy looper pedals. rachel comes over to wayne’s house and they talk about stuff for a little while and then they make sounds together. all sound making happens in the basement. always in the basement. always basement in the sound. basement sound always. there are christmas lights in the basement. they aren’t always plugged in, but they are there…
