In the next few months Buke and Gass will set off on a number journeys outside of America, including a number of gigs with an avant-garde flavor.
In October, before crossing the Atlantic, they will kick off this run of international dates with a visit to X Avant New Music Festival in Toronto. (Canada counts as international, right? Neil Young and Joni Mitchell are both foreigners.) They'll be playing right after Lori Freedman's solo improvisations for woodwinds. We told you, it's avant-garde!
On the European dates, Buke and Gass will do a few shows around Austria and France, before hitting up the Week-End Festival in Deutschland. The Week-End organizers have excellent taste in selecting music for their festival trailer.
In December, it's onward to Etnoblog (blog!?!) in Italy, State-X New Forms Festival in The Netherlands and Kilbi im Exil FestivalSwitzerland. Once again, there's a bit focus on crazy experimental stuff. For example, State-X is a festival for "avant-garde rock, cutting-edge electronics and nu-art." They'll be sharing the bill there with artists like Flying Lotus, Black Lips, and Das Racist. So, you know, it'll be fun-garde as well.
