Be Here Now: Ben Miller/Matt Weston Duo @ UAG, 10/24/09
The Albany Sonic Arts Collective has been teaming up with venerable mainstream arts organizations recently, like Proctors (last month’s Faust concert) and the Arts Center of the Capital Region (last week’s Communal Drone Night), but they’re getting back to their underground roots again with their next show on Saturday (October 24) at the Upstate Artists Guild in Albany.
Headlining is the Ben Miller/Matt Weston Duo. Formerly a member of Michigan’s legendary Destroy All Monsters (and brother of Mission of Burma’s Roger Miller), Miller plays sax, guitar and analog electronics, while Albany’s own Weston tackles the percussion chores.
Also on the bill on Saturday is the bass-and-guitar tandem of the Andy Crespo/Jefferson Pitcher Duo, multi-instrumentalist Sam Sowydra and Cruudeuces (the solo project of Nathaniel Brennan).
