The Saturday, September 11 show for Efterklang/Buke & Gass will be ushered in by a pre-party in the McGuire Theater Balcony Bar, from 7-8 pm that night, with the show beginning at 8 pm. Since Efterklang/Buke & Gass will be the first show of the 2010-11 Performing Arts season, we’re celebrating with a pre-party featuring not only a keg of complimentary Summit beer but also some local gratis gastronomic goodies, courtesy of Common Roots Cafe. I’m looking forward to hearing this song live. And openers Buke and Gass will astound; here’s a track wherethey sound to me like a heavily syncopated, garage rock version of the Cold War Kids, which is a good thing.
Also, the Walker’s videographer extraordinaire, Andy Underwood-Bultman, just put together the trailer for the upcoming Performing Arts season and did a pretty bad-a_ s job of it, if I may say so.
Tickets are available now for all these events. Performing Arts curator Philip Bither will be giving the run-down of the season on Thursday, September 9 at 7 pm, free and open to all, and attendees will receive a free download card featuring a track from each of our musicians/groups this season. We’ll also be handing out the download cards at the Efterklang/Buke & Gass show. Philip Bither’s talk from last year is on the Walker Channel, as is the trailer from last year (and the trailer from the year before).
