Get Weird: Hex Message and Kria Brekken
April 17 2008
April’s very special Get Weird welcomes two newly formed musical acts, both featuring gurus of the downtown art and music worlds.
Hex Message takes listeners on a journey of sonic experimentation and positive juju, featuring Dan Hougland (of Excepter) on keyboards, gallerist Pascal Spengemann (of Taxter and Spengemann) on drums, Abigail Portner (of Rings) on keyboards, and artist Andrew Kuo on guitar.
Kria Brekken, formerly of the Icelandic band Mum, will now be playing the April 17th Get Weird. Featured on recordings with Animal Collective, Bulgarian folk band Storsveit Nix Noltes, electronic folk duo Slowblow, and Afro Brazilian-inspired jam band Mice Parade, Kria will be playing a very special solo set following Hex Message’s performance.
Get Weird is a monthly series of performances featuring experimental and freaky jams. Expect anything from dusted-off salsa to psychedelic harmonies, performed by unknown legends and young-gun mavericks. Get Weird takes place on the third Thursday of each month.
