Vampire Belt (Bill Nace & Chris Corsano) – November 13th

Formed in 2002 in western Massachusetts, Vampire Belt is Bill Nace (Body/Head, x.o.4, Ceylon Mange) on guitar & electronics and Chris Corsano (Paul Flaherty, Joe McPhee, Mette Rasmussen, Michael Flower) on drums & occasional electronics. Early on, they self-released a couple of CDRs of lo-fi blow-outs, something like a mangled car wreck at the intersection of hardcore and free jazz.

See them headline at The Loft at The Chanticleer plus Kjostad, Flose, Casas. Tickets available now.

Queer Sounds Ithaca + Ithaca Underground: Jason Kahn, Sarah Hennies, Ben Owen

Jason Kahn’s performances explore the physical and spiritual limits of breath, stretching the
voice to its breaking point. The disintegration of each vocal gesture leads to the next, creating a
structure where what remains with each evacuating breath creates a context for the entire piece. In partnership with Queer Sound Ithaca.
