Rebekah Raff, Matthewdavid, Asura, Daddy Kev
Experimental art and new music monthly FUTURA returns this weekend with a host of talented classical musicians, visual artists and forward-thinking beat manipulators.
On Friday March 11, Futura presents a close encounter with celebrated harpist Rebekah Raff, perhaps best known for her collaborations with Flying Lotus, both on record (Cosmogramma) and in Flying Lotus' live 8 incarnation. For her performance at Futura, Rebekah Raff will be accompanied by Peter David Walden on cello and Te'Amir Sweeney on drums.
In support, Matthewdavid will be playing a special laptop set celebrating the March 8 release of his "International" EP (Brainfeeder) along with Futura resident Asura. Daddy Kev of Low End Theory will open the night (taking over for resident Teebs who is on tour in Europe) and Dr. Strangeloop's visuals will provide a backdrop of sensory stimulation in the historic venue.
Presented by Alpha Pup Records and the Eagle Rock Music Festival, Futura provides a performance outlet for Los Angeles' brightest new artists in the realms of ambient electronica, improv jazz, live orchestration, beat music and more. Futura is an all-ages event that takes place the second Friday of every month at the Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock, located at 2225 Colorado Blvd. Doors to Futura open at 9:00pm and admission to the event is $10.
