Buke and Gase with Michael Azerrad at Threes Brewing (early set @ 8pm)
"On each of their releases to date, Buke and Gase have never been anything less than absolutely thrilling" Pitchfork
Hudson and Brooklyn-based Buke and Gase are Arone Dyer on the "buke" (a self-modified six-string former baritone ukulele) and Aron Sanchez on the "gase" (a guitar-bass hybrid of his own creation). Both of them play double duty, also mobilizing a small army of foot percussion. These instruments are then filtered through various pedals, amplifiers and homemade inventions to create a surprisingly complex sound. Dyer's supermelodic vocal lines weave through the beautiful yet unwieldy musical matter, balancing light and dark, calamity and control. Their musical multi-tasking makes for live shows that are visually unexpected and sonically explosive.
A favorite of NPR Music and the Radiolab podcast, the duo have toured Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas most recently as the hand-picked opener for Battles autumn 2015 tours.
