May CALENDAR

Founded by producer-composer Ryan Lott in 2007, Son Lux "works at the nexus of several rarely-overlapping Venn Diagrams." With the recent additions to the band of guitarist-composer Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang, Son Lux is now a ferocious trio both live and on record. Bones (June 23, 2015) is the first album documenting this new formation, and it draws from the three members' unique and omnivorous musical vernaculars. Few bands have built a more impressive and varied array of collaborators: Lorde, Beyoncé producer Boots, Sufjan Stevens, Matthew Dear, Busdriver, Vijay Iyer, Nico Muhly and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw.

Son Lux, Xenia Rubinos & Special Guests are coming to Strange Matter on Saturday, May 28th! CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS!

Many thanks to our pal Armistead Spottswoode over at WCVE's Midnight Frights for producing this cool little spot extolling our many virtues. All you dingleberries on iPhones (or any dingleberries who can't see the embedded video) should click here.

Be sure to tune in to your Community Idea Station every Saturday at midnight for Midnight Frights.
