New York’s janus trio continue their 2012 rampage with a show tonight at one of our favorite venues in New York, Public Assembly. The place knows no boundaries and we’re almost already taking its adventurous programming for granted — shouldn’t we be able to have indie rock, bass parties, art shows, hip-hop nights and new classical ensembles at every club in town? If that ever happens, thank the people at Public Assembly for proving that it rules. This weekend’s latest concert for the Inside the Whale series gives you yet another reason to check it out.
Saturday, janus joins fellow New Amsterdam records artists Big Farm. Big Farm is a supergroup of sorts, featuring composer Steven Mackey on electric guitar, Pulitzer Prize finalist Rinde Eckert on vocals, Jason Treuting of So Percussion on drums, and Mark Haanstra on bass, has not performed in New York since performing with janus in 2010.
Details for this concert:
Saturday, April 7 at 7:30pm in the Back Room
