Church of The Friendly Ghost Presents Composer Chris Schlarb at SVT
This is an exciting time for Church of the Friendly Ghost, a local organization that supports and brings exposure to creative, cutting-edge music by local, national and international artists. CoTFG just received a grant from the MetLife Arts Foundation, called “Meet the Composer,” which has made it possible to bring musician and composer Chris Schlarb to Austin for two performances at the Salvage Vanguard Theater, 2803 Manor Rd.
These performances may be the last few times Schlarb will perform work from Twilight and Ghost Stories, an album released through Asthmatic Kitty Records. Performances will be tonight and tomorrow night, with both shows beginning at 9 p.m. Doors open at 8 p.m. Admission is $10 and includes a copy of the Twilight and Ghost Stories CD.
Schlarb will be accompanied by a 10-piece ensemble of local artists, organized by Nick Hennies of The Weird Weeds:
Bill Baird – guitar, voice
Steve Bernal – cello
Diane Cluck – guitar, voice
Chris Cogburn – percussion
Jon Doyle- reeds
Nick Hennies – vibraphone, voice
Alex Keller – electronics
Ken’s Last Ever Radio Extravaganza- electronics
