On June 19th, the Art Hospital will host four instrumental groups who transcend their complexity throughout their high-energy performances.

 

From Asheville, N.C., Ahleuchatistas (it’s the name of a Charlie Parker tune and it sounds like it’s spelled) is a trio that writes slick, memorable jazz licks, then hammers them out with grinding drums, whirlwind guitar, and rock-solid bass.  “And while Ahleuchatistas could be grouped in with punk or with metal or with some sort of avant-jazz, they aren’t exactly any of those things. They are simply a tight three-piece making their own noise and cranking out great albums nearly every year.” — Pop Matters

 

Napa, California’s Planets .  Their explosive duo represents the new standard in high-energy music, made famous by Lightning Bolt and Hella.

 

Basilica’s wild compositions for two violins, two guitars, drums, bass, and video projections continue to make a bold, radiant impression on Bloomingon.  They will be performing an almost entirely new set.

 

Impure Jazz is a trio building on a solid base of rock music.  They find tasty licks, then decorate them with snappy rhythms and bright harmonies.
