Comfort Music: Slow Planes. Vivian McConnell

DOORS AT 7; MUSIC AT 7:30
$5 SUGGESTED DONATION
NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES PERMITTED

Slow Planes create music focused on the ceremonial passing of time. Using traditional folk sounds they build patient, ritual rhythms out of guitar, banjo, brass, violin, drum, percussion, and voice. Taking influence from American improvisation and classical minimalism, the six musicians create primitive dance music and engaging, hypnotic landscapes. Internal narratives and oblique vignettes swell and fall away as acoustic manipulation and repetitive movements construct a sound that feels both early American and prehistoric.

Slow Planes is:
Timothy Breen - Guitar/Voice
Conor Harvey - Guitar
Esther Shaw - Violin
Chris Kornman - Banjo/trumpet
Nick Barnett - Percussion
David Strand - Percussion

Vivian McConnell is the vocalist/guitarist in Chicago bands Grandkids and Santah. She's been working on a solo project that will surely lull you to sleep (like when you really need a nap and you doze on the train for a bit).
