Kiss kiss bang bang on a can

Today marks the one year anniversary of Maxwell’s announcement of its imminent closing.  As it happens, we are already planning to spend the evening there to see the Bats and Wild Carnation.  Six years earlier, we’re just across the Hudson, taking part in the Bang on a Can marathon at the Winter Garden atrium in the World Financial Center.  For the occasion, we have expanded our score for the Jean Painlevé film “The Sea Horse” to 20 minutes and expanded our lineup to a sextet, joined by Britt Walford on drums, Elson Nascimento on percussion, and P.G. Six on harp.  Georgia is on Ace Tone, and it’s a good thing she doesn’t need her legs, because she is recently out of surgery, walking with the aid of crutches.
